    EGA workshop suggestions?

    I'm surprised! I still remember from EGA... 200x? a bush doof one when he gave a talk on a panel. Really calm and measured speaker, and fielded some curly questions with aplomb.

  7. That bird is amazing, what is it?

    FREE gourd and bombilla for maté

    Love it. Never tried iced but it seems a cool idea. I lost my Paraguariensis in a move and I stick to black tea now
  9. Happy New Year everyone. Free gourd and bombilla (chrome on bomiblla is stripping a bit, might need some attention). For them who drink hierba maté. First in gets it.

    B caapi variegation?

    Dunno what this is but I've seen it before. Not variegation, but I don't know what the virus is. Seems to grow out, which I guess you know by now.

    Cactus of the month year day thread? Which cactus is really shining for you right now?

    This Eileen pup, one of about 12 (looks like I smeared the plant with BAP, but I didn't even trim it). It's growing some kind of spurs under the aereolas, I haven't seen that on my other plants. Looks really alive.

    EGA Launch a New Conference Website

    Firefox gave me a "potential security risk" following the link from this thread. Keen to see the new site tho!

    Seed suggestions

    Obregonia denegrii, Strombocactus disciformis, Coryphantha compacta, Mammillaria grahamii, Pelecyphora aselliformis, Turbinicarpus sp. are all great little cacti that are well suited to pere grafting.

    Grafting idea i had

    Depending on the size of the scion piercing it might do it in. Some people have used glue in a similar way to your idea with honey. Apparently it works pretty well. The honey idea is cool, i wonder if it can help with fungal problems too, if these are a problem. You could try to put a small amount of honey on the "far" side of the cut stock as a barrier, then slide the scion off the blade towards the honey barrier, this may help keep the scion slightly in place. Otherwise you can try different shaped stock cuts, like groove or spike, again depending on scion size.
