i usually make a slurry from soil from around the roots of other Acacia species, let it settle and pour off the water onto my seeds and seedlings. the bacteria should be present within the soil, and likewise be in suspension within the water.

Went to visit my phleb which I stuck in the ground on old farm land in central Victoria early October 2014. Planted between a couple of big embedded rocks. Very exposed, full sun all day

 

Watered only twice since then, last watering was mid November. Was kinda surprised to find her looking reasonably happy. Rainfall since planting 80-100mm, mean max. temps 26-29°C with a couple days max temps >40°C

probably about 5 years old.

 

not certain when they germinate, but I would suspect springtime or early summer after temps increase, snow melts and water becomes more available 


would anyone tell me if I were getting stupider?
