  1. Howdy all, Looking to buy some seeds/seedlings of a few acacias for a bit of a landscape feature wall. Up for suggestions for good varieties that either grow naturally bushy or respond well to pruning. Cheers

    Grafting acacias

    There are a heap of cool grafted acacias for sale at bunnings so it should work. I think infi is on the money with needing to do it with more mature plants for the best success but young stuff should be doable as well.

    Looking for acacias for landscaping

    Holosericea looks real nice. I think there is a solid amount of obtusifolia on the property already too. Where abouts do you guys suggest going to buy a few hundred or so seeds of each of those varieties? Pretty indifferent about any goodies in them, more just keen on the toughness of them and the nitrogen fixing quality.

    Looking for acacias for landscaping

    Not sure on exact climate zone but it gets pretty frosty over winter and very hot in summer. In the mountains though so unless we are in drought you get a bit of rain almost every day.

    Salvia d. mechanism of infertility

    Its self fertile and can also hybridize. I lost my mother plants and single hybrid years ago but it's doable without much hassle. I wouldn't be surprised if the native pollinator is the missing link as hand pollination seems to solve the "problem".

    Seed suggestions

    Cactusstore.com has at least one of the aztekiums at a decent price, maybe hintonii and ritterii as well.

    Matucana Pachanoi seeds and clones

    Maois could be a big factor. Along with whatever other alks may or may not be present in each particular plant.

    Salvia D

    Also chasing a bit of this again
  9. Hi Everyone, My foray back into mycology is chugging along nicely. I've managed to get my hands on a number of edibles and am now hoping to offer some for sale to anyone else keen to get into the game Also open for trades for anything not on the list (I do have a few others on the way so trade isn't guaranteed if it isn't on the list but pretty likely) The next 2 - 3 weeks are pretty good for me in regards to uni study, then there will probs be 3ish weeks that I sort of disappear. Then I will be back and pumping out even more over summer. For orders of cultures I'd like to keep it to a minimum of 3 plates, don't have to be of the same species. Price is $15 per plate + postage. Happy to arrange pick up/drop off in the Hunter Area (and I pass by warnervale area of central coast frequently too). The list is: Shitake Enoki Swiss Brown DFAM - Victorian Origin Wild Pearl Oyster Monster - Victorian Origin Wild Pearl Oyster Victorian Blue Oyster Sordid Blewit - Lepista sordida Maitake Black Morel (morchella importuna) Elm Mushroom Hon-Shimeji/Beech Mushroom(brown) Paddy Straw Almond Agaricus (blazeii) Abalone Oyster (pleurotus cystidiosis) Pink Oyster Golden Oyster White Ferula (pleurotus nebrodensis) (Turkey tail currently cloning) Milky Mushroom (calocybe indica) I've also got some prints from wild sub, cyan and cube specimens from around the Hunter, Watagans and Bulahdelah region. I've also got some ready to go agar nutrient media that you just soak in water for a couple hours, dissolve as normal for agar, strain to remove sediment and then sterilise and go. Works out to be 120g of nutrient mix per 1L water. Could chuck in enough for 1L for $5. FYI, I sometimes disappear for a few weeks at a time. I have a tendency to get into a heap of projects at once and then go AWOL to get them finished. I will always get back in touch if we are half way through a trade/order or whatever. And if I go AWOL you are likely to get extras Cheers

    Edible Cultures for Sale Australia

    Thanks mate I'm hoping to end up with 2 - 3 times the number of species by the end of this summer. Finally have the space needed to set up some individual fridges and incubators to maintain such a varied library. Been a dream for a while

    Keeping my eye on this!

    Did you end up getting some decent spore prints from them?
  15. ace1928

    What's the consensus on these?

    There is some definite bluing that I can see near the stem in those pics. I'm curious to know if a spore print was taken too. They look interesting.

    Monstrose/Weird Tricho seed

    Yeh chemical treatments can be super hazardous to the person using them, especially due to the subtle damage they cause as compared to out right chemical burns or some other obvious reaction (although many will cause an obvious reaction as well). Definitely not something trivial to play with lightly. Polyploidy is not something I've played with much yet but definitely one I want to have some with with soon. I think oryzalin would be a better option than colchicine though. Colchicine does kill a large number of what you use it on. And I defo need to get me some of those variegate misplant seeds. Anyone got some nice variegate producing seed they want to exchange a few of the induced mutant seed for?

    Monstrose/Weird Tricho seed

    At the moment I'm keeping it a bit of a secret. Been a long project with a lot of trial and error and keen to recoup some investment before spreading the info around freely. I can say it is non-gmo though and won't give you cancer (unless a gene mutation happens to cause it to now produce some carcinogenic phytochemical)

    Monstrose/Weird Tricho seed

    I've got some seed I could trade. It's been treated to induce mutation so any mutations present are likely unique and not inherited from mum/dad. Mutation percentage is around 10% Send me a message if you're keen. Here's a little guy who's about 18 months old on own roots from an earlier batch. Send me a pm if interested
