  1. One of the various rusts/rots caused by fungi or bacteria. They are fairly ubiquitous in the environment and within collections. They seem to spread among the wild prickly pears too, so it's just everywhere and the hope of a collection free of it is pretty much unrealistic unless you live very remote and follow strict quarantine protocols. Even healthy looking cuts can be harbouring them and by the time you notice it's pretty much too late. So the best approach is through ongoing management rather than permanent eradication. Use of systemic fungicides seems to work well. Mancozeb is pretty good. Also environment plays a big role. fungi and bacteria explode when conditions are right, which seems to be hot/stagnant/sweltering conditions for going ballistic in trichos. Try to keep them shaded from the afternoon sun in an area that always gets good airflow. Really bad cases will often require some surgery and/or amputation. There's a facebook member named Gee Bee who's a bit of an expert on the matter.

    Tryna germinate kangaroo grass seeds

    Wicked, that's good to know. I hope to regenerate a lot more of this species in areas where it has been displaced by non-native species. By the way, if you check out the thread on 'The Coke Bottle Tek' this method has been working wonders for absolutely everything I put into it, including random grass seeds that find they way in by mistake. It's essentially a fast easy way to do a whole box full of wicking tubes at a time. I'm also just placing forrestry tubes into PET bottle bottoms (for wicking), which also has some pros and cons like faster turnaround and entirely re-usable materials, but no dome unless you use small tubes. Probably had my best success with natives so far, -and cacti. Basically you put in a little bit of extra time up front and enjoy all the benefits from then on. If you're a propagator then try it bro.http://www.shaman-australis.com/forum/index.php?/topic/47590-coke-bottle-tek-a-terrarium-technique/
