    Flying with fresh cutting

    haha last time i was in melbourne i bought an extra suitcase to fill to the brim with cactus i bought......no problem coming back to brisbane
  2. Hey guys! Rainy weather in SE QLD at the moment so thought id ask your opinions on some of my plants. I recently bought a mixed grouping of Trichocereus that came from the friend of an unknown breeder. I was told that most of them were super pedro x psycho0 but there is clearly more going on here and I thought these are good examples of weird unknown hybrids. These unknown hybrids seem to be increasingly common in Australia due to inexperienced or misleading breeders crossing whatever has flowered in their garden and helps confuse those new to cacti. Would love any opinions on these weirdos #1 is the only one that looks like a possible psycho0 x super pedro to me. The original column is very fat and the new growth with wacky yellow spines looks very psycho0 to me. (pics 1-4) #2 looks like it has some cuzco in it, what with the splayed bone white spines on older growth and maybe bridgesii in the mix. (pics 5-8) #3 has the "cordobensis" look to me which I know is a defunct name but apart from super pedro I dont know what to call this fat bastard. (pics 9-12) #4 looks like a pc pach x with cuzco...or perhaps a short spine peruvianus? Yellow short spines when immature, whitening and lengthening with age and fast growing.(pics 13-15) If anyone wants to see more theres plenty more i need identified haha sorry in advance for the poor lighting

    Sida Cordifolia questions

    Hi groovedude, I have consumed sida cordifolia leaf several times in a simple boiled tea, just filtered through thin material and have not had any discomfort or irritation. It definitely helps calm a fever!

    Acacia Leiocalyx?

    Thanks for the reply! It certainly looks like concurrens so I may have been wrong there. These trees were found on Karra Garra island and the Redland bay council lists Leiocalyx as being common there and known to flower in winter, which is what made me think thats what it might be. Love your profile picture by the way

    Acacia Leiocalyx?

    Hi guys! After years of being a cactus lover and having spent a lot of time learning about various species and how to identify them I've now become interested in learning about acacias. After visiting the moreton bay islands recently ive found a large stand of what I believe is Acacia Leiocalyx however due to the staggering variety of acacia species and the amount of information available I'd love a second opinion! Thanks in advance!
