The Corroboree
bit

What did you do to your cacti today?

Recommended Posts

Wish mine would flower like that, tallest one is getting close to the 8 foot mark so got my fingers crossed for this season!

This little one has no hesitation to put out buds though.

Bit of a mishap after the last bit of rain we had. Drying up nicely though.

Remembered I actually own cacti. Pulled them out of the long grass and put them upright again. Where do I begin?

looked at them, thought " i wish i had some fertiliser", then though "i really need to repot some of these", then thought "i need some bigger pots hmmmm", then looked at the compost and thought "this really isn't broken down enough for potting" and then thought "shit, need more money"

and so on, and so forth,

,,,unpackaged these freshly released local beautiespost-14443-0-97876700-1412867072_thumb.j

and set em to dry in the ormus rooting potpost-14443-0-11637200-1412867092_thumb.jpost-14443-0-48440700-1412867097_thumb.jpost-14443-0-08353400-1412867103_thumb.j

I love uk surprises... reassures my faith in the true magick of the place,

I guess wherever there's bastages.. there's also natural humans...

..... must've been very misfortunate with my first uk cactus buying attempts a couple of years ago to get several 'orrible vendors in a row....

either that or some had a personality transplant, a charisma bypass or arsehole surgery....

or have been usurped by real people selling no bullshit cacti affordably without being a cunt to their customers :P

or took a leaf out of the good guy's book?

anyhoo rawrz... look how sexy this one izzzpost-14443-0-82928200-1413054181_thumb.jpost-14443-0-56481500-1413054188_thumb.j

maybe I'll gift the other one away , I think I've got that one already in a larger size

I've only got 2 little spachs so farpost-14443-0-66495900-1412870883_thumb.jbut yes I'm trying to create breeding stock from them (and all trichos humanly possible) eventually... I still need more experience with spachianus , just managed to get them through black rot so far ...

and after losing 2 largish ones that even a hairdryer couldnt save a year or so back

,,,,

i know a guy who has some monsters to cut but i almost darent yet.... anyhoo with regards to these whipper snapper spachs,,,

by growing them outdoor all season its fixed the rot... theyve only been back inside about a monthish

thank you most kindly,

it was a toss between fat phuqq lophs and crestardo trichos ...,

fat lophs won

down to space, looks, price ....

and the kids leverage on my decisions ,birthdays an all

and.. since theyll probably have all the fun of flowering and breeding every single species that makes it that far...

old fat lophs, I guess; are perfect in every way for the mean time cuz they're small, tough as a brick shithouse, flower like fk all year...

and little fingers dont get hurt by fluff

and as a bonus, they think theyre really cute , especially after being fluffed up :3... which im inclined to agree with

I guess I'm blessed with the years of getting the tricho list to grow big enough to flower in time .. hopefully also in time to make me happy and give me reasons to be active when i'm old

I still need more experience with spachianus

seriously? I can send you a gazillion seeds of them & you can grow them all out...that species is a weed for me.

I ran out of chia seeds so now I'm using spachianus seeds in my morning oatmeal

sounds yummy zelly

and thank you kindly but I have a couple of spach bags accrued so I'll politely decline for now

might be interesting to see how they do outdoors in the ground here, i think I'll sow em in the garden in april if i remember...

they definitely like mother nature's nurture techniques a tad more than mine... bit like a couple of acacias i have outside too

mind you the mixed tricho bag sowings i sourced from germany look like they may have a few spachs in there

Been putting a lot of plants in ground as I work on the landscaping in my back yard.

It's starting to take shape.

And then I'm teaching my kids not to disrupt the spiders.
