Gimli's acuminata giveaway show-off thread

Recommended Posts

Starting a thread for people to post photos of acuminata grown from my seed. Surely must be a lot of small trees out there by now :)

 

I'll start off with this specimen, germinated 01/2018 and planted 25/3/18 and now a lovely 3.3m tall

Love to see what others have grown :)

Here's my lot sown (years later) in December 2019. They really need to be planted out desperately, but I have no room. So I'll be guerilla planting them in the next couple of weeks.

Second pic shows the narrow phyllodes variant.

Here last years survivors after losing about 70-80% to severe frost.  Ive recently moved closer to the beach so am hoping for milder frost conditions combined with a years growth am hoping for better results.  They're keen to get in the ground.20200604_095943.thumb.jpg.7b514d0be35eb923743310ec3214c177.jpg

Sowed these broad phyllode 02/19. First time growing natives so I am pretty stoked with the results. Have given a heap away, sold a few and planted some around melbourne. Still have about 175 which will be going in the ground at the end of winter (into the rolling hills pictured)

Planted my seed on the 31/1/19. I planted upwards of 15 but only 2 have survived so far (largely due to my ignorance).


On the 7/2/19 I noticed my activity with some cotyledons appearing

On the 21/3/19 I snapped this photo showing the Acacias first leaves. I always find the divided nature of them to be quite pretty. Unfortunately, this is the last update photo I have apart from todays snaps

My grow has been hindered throughout by plants slowly dying, both from finding the right location sun wise and also for some unknown reason (nothing I've done has fixed it) the phyllode tips keep slowly turning brown and dying off as seen in the next pictures

Another problem I have encountered is one of my surviving plants growing completely on its side. Before steaking it up today it was literally laying in the dirt.

Apart from that though things are going well. Starting to see the first signs of secondary branching. Im looking forward to a more successful season this time round now I know what im doing!
