Fun Day:

Ordered some BRITISH grapevines from Sunnybank Vines in the UK, planned skullduggery for how to import them.

Got in touch with Mattslandscaping to negotiate a $250 order of BIG torch cacti for spring.

Received A. valdezii grafted onto A. myriostigma, and M. 'Arizona Snowcap' grafted on M. geommetrizans from 123.mirka in Poland via ebay.

Six-point valdezii on eight-point myriostigma. NICE!!!!

123.mirka sent TEN random Astrophyta as a gift! All about 1" across, a good mix.

He has more valdezii-on-myriostigma on ebay, take a look!

Was sent an enormous number of PV berries for sprouting FRESH.

Went through the WHOLE tech -- sterilizing tupperwares, soil, and soaking seeds in dilute bleach after mooshing off the pulp.

Arrived 1 Jan --> First sprouts 1 Feb, FOUR WEEKS!

I tell you guys! Get FRESH SEED, FOLLOW THE TECH, and it works!

---Roger.

watered and fed using aeroponic ferts and root gel in the mix

added a few viridis cuttings to the aquarium..

added a few successful viridis cuttings to the 'rfb' under plastic fruit snack packaging

trimmed the acacias , they just survived spidermites which are finally gone..

dropped self in it telling kids that you can grow citrus plants from supermarket seeds so saved 4 nice chunky grapefruit seeds to try some point in future and have a new mission of limes lemons and several different types of oranges , goodness knows where they're gna grow if not bonsai or something lol

added another successful psychotria viridis cutting to the RFB from the aeropod :3 with a little humidity dome ..

took a fresh aya cutting to replace the lost ones..

had a 2nd muricata and a 2nd alicia sprouting over the last day after breaking the soil the day prior..

moved some cactulets around ... watered some reviving acacias..

bought another one of them funny LED floodlight thingys with double the oomf in it... probably for the RFB...

Two legendary entheos waited till i gave up on them before allowing themselves to come into the window of possible opportunity which was mighty strange but very welcome news...

umm... i think that's it ... oh yeah , fed some nitey to the RFB...

I planted some young seedlings out in the garden. They all look very pleased I must say!

Planted Mugwort rhizomes and Silene Capensis.

Repotted some small Coleuses.

Repurposed some bricks for a new garden path.

.. and sheltered a fragile sage from the brisk easterly.

Cut my Kanna back, started a fermentation from the cuttings (around 2 full handfuls- about half a plastic sandwich bag). Interested to see how the plant survives these first cool Perth nights.

If you have trees in the yard you can tie them into the forks of branches. I've done this at my place with bromeliads, orchids and Epiphyllums. They take a while to go cos most have come from potted environments but you will get extremely strong plants in the long run once they settle
