Help with hundreds please? pay postage = free stuff

Question

Hello who ever is moderating this. I hope whats below is ok. Please advise why if not. Thanks

VIEW POST #34 to see what I want to get through and share out.

UPDATE:

In the spirit of what I have been trying to do; community, personal choice, plant diversity, happiness, fun and free stuff, I would like to do some "ID's with a Differnce" if thats ok.

I plan to add a photo almost every day for a long time until every cacti or succulent I own has a new ID tag with a members username on the back of it. This is how it's going to work:

  • I will post a photo with a question mark and you can all argue about it and when the majority agree, - whoever got it right first will get a cutting, seedling, seeds, a pup (when it is ready) or whatever it takes to get a member something to grow from the correctly Identified item.
  • If you dont want it then whoever posts first after the photo (only if you really, really want it) gets a bit of it, as long as they dont have whatever it is already.
  • If seeds are not availalable, pups, graft or whatever is needed to get you something new, then I will write your member name, number and date ID that was made on the tag to remind me to send it when it is. Alternatly I can bring something to a meet to pass on.
  • If the item to be posted is small and light, I will cover postage. If it's not, you pay post or let the first '1st' poster have it.
  • If the plant goes unidentified that day then I will update the original post with, for example - mystery plant post 127, until it is correctly named to keep the ball rolling.

If you wonder 'why is he doing this?' - coz it's a nice thing to do and I like this group. I've regulary been directed here when ID ing stuff myself over the years and I thought i would give something back.

Jox and Stillman PM me for goodies.

Some items may have to remain within Australia, sorry to our overseas family.

Hi all,

I need help identifying the following two plants I picked up at the market on the weekend.

1st

post-12252-0-45958200-1354679227_thumb.j

From what I can find on the net by putting in their descriptions I think this one is a Euphorbia flanaganii cristata?

2nd

post-12252-0-10573600-1354679231_thumb.j

I think this one is a Euphorbia Caput Medusae?

Thanks in advance for any help

I was doing some grafting with John this morning. Own seed. He said he had been growing them for a very long time for his grafting stock.

There have been a couple crash landings in there lol. All 4 have already have learnt not to break dad's cacti :angry: lol.

Babie lophs yes. Mothers NO. They will be spread out at random. Those are worth nothing if you have a better look through all the pictures and compare.

Your on fire Stillman - theres something else for your parcel.

Jox I'll take those likes as confirmation - A cutting for you too.

I will give you guys/anyone in on this 'game' the option to hold off on postage until a bigger pack is put together. Lots to get theough, lots to give.

I am considering auctioning a couple things off to cover fuel to get to some meets around the country to deliver goodies and do a few trades if there is enough interest.

Thanks for playing
