    Caapi cutting Mite Infestation :(

    Hey man sorry if you think they came from me, but i sent those plants 2 months ago and ive never seen them on any of my plants..??? But hey who knows bro, maybe they did, if you have a problem pm me and we can discuss it that way. Could be thrips?? Either way couple drops of detergent in a spray bottle of water sorts most bugs out, dont stress, they are tough plants
  2. Sometimes when ive been tripping so hard that it seems obvious that my life is an illusion i think maybe humans have the power to collectively manifest, you know at one point in time the whole race thought the world to be flat, and it was, and then someone sailed around the world proving to the world it was round and it was then a sphere..... If people believe something, it is real. if enough people believe something it becomes a fact, but that doesnt mean any of it is actually happening- humans dont know fuckin jack shit, no matter how many scientists get behind it.... I am happy believing anything and everything is possible :-) and a round or flat earth would be totally dependent on which program is currently running. Bong on peeps!
  3. Time to pull the super, exciting times!!

    When to stop watering Lophs in Brisbane?

    It will depend on what your plants are used to and what soil they live in, but generally speaking brissy is fine atm for watering those plants. It should be safe for a while longer with warm temps and low humidity. I have just watered all my (similar) plants that only get controlled waterings but i dont think i will again until spring. Just keep an eye on the weather and keep them dry if we are in for cooler weather, substrate should be dry again after a few days, if thats not gonna happen leave it. Still more growth to be had in brissy

    Salvia and ants..

    Hi im looking for advice, Periodically i watch a salvia plant slowly die to ants making nests in the hollow stalk. The tip dies and slowly works its way back. The inside full of ants and eggs. Any suggestions on how to stop this happening??

    Anyone have any pics of the mother plant at cactus country that PD took his cutting from?? The plant that is pictured in psyentists post looks pretty fucked up which i assume is PDs garden... Id love to hear a bit more about that plant... like why PD was after it for so long and deserving of the label jims special? And does jim hold that plant dear and sell it as anything else?? To me looking at the mother plant of jims pach it is obvious, beautiful plant... the above plant kinda looks like shit so either it is a powerful teacher or the mother plant looks a whole lot nicer???

  22. Good Morning cacti enthusiasts. I know the topic of soils and mediums has probably been done to death here, but I was hoping to get a little information, not on composition but on suppliers of particular minerals in australia. I used the search engine and cannot find similar topics, please post a link if I have missed it...... I have recently been putting a lot of time into moving to an all mineral medium for some of my collection. I am having the best time and am truly stepping up into obsessive territory.... I am now seeing rocks when I close my eyes... love it!! ;-) I am sure others can relate lols anyways I have been concocting brews, potting up, writing down recipes etc using ideas from reading and a splash of intuition, one thing I can't get a handle on is where to obtain all of the ingredients from in australia..... It would great if there was a horticultural warehouse where I could order bagged products and have them delivered- but... there doesn't seem to be an online store that will stock more than one item I am looking for... So far I am looking for the following (but please add any reccomendations!!): Zeolite - I am currently using pool filter ZEO-Clor- I am hoping to obtain horticultural or similar product > 2mm. I see the zeo-clor reccommended a fair bit, but it seems too fine to me..? Bentonite Clay - I am using a kitty litter that, when at the shop I read 'made of 100% australian Bentonite', I saw that and grabbed it, only to find out when I got it home that it is fucking MINTY fresh... so I had to wash it and then dry it and recrumble it..... a step I'd like to do without..... the grain size seemed nice though in the kitty litter... would have been nice if I didnt have to wash it, maybe other brands??? I bought mistys.... Diatomite - I am happy with the mt sylvia calcined diatomaceous earth sold as kleensorb- bought 35 ltr bag for around 18$ i think which isnt too bad, but would like a better price if I continue to use it............... Vermiculite - love to buy in 100ltr bags..??? perlite - love to buy in 100ltr bags..??? Things I'd like to get but havent come across yet............ pummice limestone chips Akadama andesite dacite mica/mica shist etc............................................ Also, I am getting expanded clay and coir from the hydro shop which I am cool with because I am not using it alot atm, can anyone can direct me to cheap sources for future reference???? Looking forward to any input, thanks :-)
