    Kannas leaves wrinkling help me out :)

    Hi Nailthesnail I have made a few cuttings of these and left them in a pot of dry potting mix for approximately 1-2 weeks without watering. They wrinkle up but they still survive and most of them end up growing roots. The best thing you could do to make sure it remains healthy is put it in a free draining soil as zelly said and leave it (it is a succulent after all!). Don't over-water it like I did with my first Kanna Also I made sure to put them out of the sun whilst they were rooting. Good luck. Cheers Tio.

    Trichocereus scopulicola?

    Hi dawnbeaver, As Stillman said: Looks like a T. scopulicola. The very short spines and fat ribs give it away.

    NZ Seed and plant trades - not buy and sell

    Hi guys. Good to see more New Zealander's popping up on here. I have also been pretty busy, and off the radar lately but I am now on holiday so I have bit more time! With the warm weather and the help of a few generous people I now I have a number of spare plants/seeds available to trade: Seeds: Argemore mexicana (Prickly poppy) Datura inoxia Heimia myrtifolia or Heimia salicifolia (unsure of species) Nicotiana species (unknown - most likely N. tabacum) Silene capensis Plants: Artemisia vulgaris (Mugwort) Heimia myrtifolia or Heimia salicifolia (unsure of species) Sceletium tortuosum (Kanna) Pereskiopsis spathulata Will add more if I find them. PM me if your interested in anything. Cheers, Tio.
  4. Mutant I don't think It can be a C. agaricoides as they are Secotioid fungi and their cap does not open fully. I have to agree with Karode13 it definitely seems like it could be a C. rachodes. At the moment there is another one of these mushrooms growing under a large conifer in my property, so I can have a better look at that once it grows bigger.
  5. Hi Mutant, Thanks for the reply. I thought Macrolepiota rhacodes and Chlorphyllum rhacodes are the same mushroom?

    Fungi in cacti pot ID

    Nice, they are still growing after I pulled most of the mycelium out I was going to tell you about them but I thought they were all dead. They don't look like any oyster mushrooms that have grown from my spawn. Not too sure what they are.
  7. Cheers, I just edited the post.
  8. Hello NZer's, I have been lurking for awhile and I just have a few things for sale or trade: - 2x button grafts on top of a T. pachanoi stocks (taken and pupping) - 1x button cutting ready for grafting or rooting - pereskiopsis cuttings (with roots) - Tobacco seeds (pesticide and herbicide free) I got a bit carried away with grafting in summer so I need to clear out a few things. Please pm me if you are interested. Cheers Tio.
  9. Hello, Once again, I have been very busy lately and have some spare P. pulmonarius grain spawn (Rye) left over that I am unable to use. I can send small amounts away for free. But If you want larger amounts I'm be open to trade for seeds/cuttings/Edible prints or cash. Let me know if you are interested. Thanks, Tio
  10. Here is a picture of my first Trichocereus pachanoi that I have seen producing flowers. The first two flowers opened on boxing day and the rest are growing at a very fast rate. (I never realized how fast they grow!)
  11. Hi again New Zealander's, I still have plenty of grain and doweling spawn left. Let me know if you still want some, I can send small amounts out for free or larger amounts out for a small cost (Freight). Thanks.
