  1. I work in a wholesale tree nursery and these magnolias go out by the truck load. Lots of pretty cultivars available: 'Kay parris' 'Little gem' 'Coolwyn gloss' 'Exmouth' And the more desired 'Teddy bear' for its large round leaves. Very aesthetic looking trees. Next time we prune I might bring the trailer in.

    Hey guys, I've kind of dropped of the radar the past few months, but I'm starting to get withdrawals now so I'll definitely be in to get my fix of plant heads!

    Phlebophylla infection?

    Hiya all. My cherished phlebophylla is showing signs of struggle within the past month or two. I'm worried it's the bacterial infection they are troubled with at buffalo. Anyone have a more optimistic diagnoses? Should I cut off the affected growth? The branches are showing the most signs of damage. Infected stems? Blemishes on top new growth. Kind regards, HY

    Phlebophylla infection?

    Wonderful! Thanks to all, I really appreciate the separate opinions. I'll be keeping a very close eye over the next few weeks to spot any pest or eggs, and might just try the ol' ziplock bag trick. I've just got to have the heart to pluck a leaf!

    I'm only going to bed now so hopefully the next three hours of sleep are quality. I would hate to miss out on today.

    What Video Games Do You Play?

    Can't agree more botanika! The dark souls franchise is simply amazing from character/boss design, level design to game mechanics! As angry and frustrated as I get ,I still can't shake the need to beat each and every one of them!

    colouring in Acacia phylllodes

    Anthocyanins appear to be the answer, somehow used to protect the new growth from uv light? I suppose developing chlorophyll into new shoots, only to have them burn off on a hot Australian day is a waste of energy. I have come across a number of acacias that do this, though given the previous (halfassed) explanation, the question is now, why don't they all have red pigment?

    The first and last three pictures I am not certain. But I'm pretty sure the middle six are acacia retinodes.

    Banisteriopsis caapi cultivation notes and discussion

    It's worth mentioning that my celio Caapi has survived winter just fine here in melbourne without protection and summer in full sun. In fact I struck a cutting mid winter this year, a thin twig less than 5mm is now sprouting new leaves after being left in the elements. No hormone, no care at all. What a resilient plant!

    What did you do to your cacti today?

    Last night didn't eat dinner til 10. I think if I'm given enough cactus to repot I could starve to death and never notice.

    Hell yeah bedofspines! And good on you bardo. I'll take them off your hands and offer 2 Acacia Courtii plants, 20 phlebophylla seeds and a Kanna plant. (I'll post pictures of the plants when I get home) These Courtii plants could use some love!

    Wattle Groves SEQ

    Check your state laws about firewood collection and have a look at their collection area maps. And try to find something fallen there, I couldn't see any issues with that.

    Agreed Gerbil, meeting like minded people through these forums is very therapeutic. Feels like a genuine loss though when one leaves. It was an amazing night that I don't think I'll easily forget!

    catuaba bulk australia

    Revisiting an old thread my annoy some people but it seems fitting to ask here, is it legal to import E.catuaba bark (or whatever it may actually be) into Australia? I've looked all over the relevant sites but can't find any mention of it.
