let's hope I manage the upload (i'm not a good pc clicker).

 

I went to one of my magic places yesterday (Hanrahan) and could not find any crocodylus johnstonii tracks, as I spotted them before.

but I spotted, what me thinks, is one of the native Tabaco.

maybe somebody can help to id, thx.

 

dam, I jinxed myself, says failure to upload...

my pic has 5.7mb, do I have to reduce the size?

thought improofed software no need to do this.

pls help, if you can.

 

ok, I can upload to chill gallery, so I will try to upload to native plants gallery, sorry for the mess (said with Hahn solos voice).

You can resize pics in MS Paint. Just look for the 'resize' option. and save as a different file name. Is Hanrahan in QLD?

looks like it could be N. occidentalis but i'm certainly no Nicotiana expert so most def do not take my word for that

member teamwhy has id'd the plant at the gallery as Nicotiana excelsior!

 

haven't had time to find out it's properties or if it's native.

Hanrahan is in qld, and the river you see is the Fitzroy, which runs through Rockhampton.

 

hd, I managed to upload without resizing to the gallery, will do as you suggest, if I have to upload pics in my posts!

I've chewed excelsior, it's got kick, and is quite a nice ornamental, but harbors white-fly pretty bad in a lush setting.

 

N. megalosiphon was my pick of the native ornamentals. Pretty common in South West QLD, but very pretty in a cactus garden.

Actually, Nicotiana megalosiphon is your best bet based on the location. :)

I think you are right, as the excelsior seems to be only endemic to the heart of oz.

for me excelsior and megalosiphon look alike...

 

but than according to location charts regarding the freshie, it ought not to be at that location either, but it is!

btw, wiki said the crocodylus johnstonii, specimen was not described for 100 years. the native police constable which produced the specimen, still gets coned by the sources as the call it crocdylus johnsoni, they still try to get aboriginal people the wrong side of the spoon..., make me sad.

and most freshwater crocodile sites spell even the false name wrong, in latin there is no single I, at an ending, it's always ii!!!!!!!

sorry for the side track, but I mentioned the crocs at the opening post.
