Stubborn stump. Doesn't really want to move, others pup and stall. One of those plants that does things when it is well and ready. G7

If you have any G4 or 5 in the future I would love to know. Great looking plants. 5 reminds me of Len a little.

I would like to get lots out to people but it's been a slow process of propagation due to various limitations.

Come spring/summer I can make a better assessment as to where I am at with propagation. I am trying to establish a good propagation base for them and not rid myself of too much biomass so I don't take a step back as simple decisions can have consequences radiating out into yearly+ timeframes.

The end goal is to get things established and breeding, so eventually I hope to get these seed cuts out to as many folk as possible.

Just the smaller, but nicer, part of my collection. The other part in the back are a bit overgrown like those in the first photo. I spent some time cleaning these all out using a pair of scissors to make sure I cut the roots off all the crabgrass and then score the soil really good. Of course I got a few spines in my hands.

Michael, if you don't mind me asking, why do you keep them in such small pots? Is it so they are manageable when you have to move them in and out for winter?

Yup, management. I have a few in bigger pots, or at least as large as I'd prefer, but terra cotta pots can get to be a bit heavy for moving twice a year (April, out, October, in). I've explained my reasoning for terra cotta elsewhere, but basically it allows quicker drying in my environment and wicks out moisture pretty quick once I bring them indoors for the winter, helping prevent rot.

I use terracotta for small pots when I can, the price of terracotta and plastic is pretty much the same for the 15cm diameter size at a local supplier.

Katydid found in a clump of A. acuminata saplings, has an ovipositor that mimics acacia phyllodes, particularly new growth on obtusifolia (which was a meter away), and it's folded wings with lenticel like pattern of acacia stems, pretty impressive.

no worries, they keep me occupied that's for sure :D

 

If you're after a certain price range or size pm me and let me know, otherwise i'll take some cuts and post them up over the next week or so with photos and prices.

I've so much material piling up, have just done a big trim of things before the wind smashes them. Been procrastinating a sale for many years.

Love the look of those g2 and g3's gerbil. Are they your own creation? A quick Google Search I wasn't able to find much.
