  1. oh well, I have been getting impatient. I have a pretty big , 4-5 year old plant, in the ground, gets plenty of light and has space to travel and climb on to. I thought it would flower earlier and easier. I am in ~ zone 9 I even had an Argyreia flower at 18 months from seed, and that was in a friggin barrel! Any clues for when it usually flowers? Also about pollination, does it need a pair or its a self=pollinating?

    thanks.. Distachya is an easy species, really. The easiest by far. here's some more updates 2 female distachyas, and closeup of the fruits/cones 2 x sinicas , the left one of still unknown sex equisetina, like I said in previous post, this year it shows its bigger than sinica phenotype , after refusing to really grow for a couple years nebrodensis / major

    chiloensis has nice big strobili. both of my biggy plants are in full flowering mode. last year it was only a reluctant bloom. this I call my ebay sinica, bought as rooted sucker. I uppotted this to take a couple nice big tufts with some root. First time I use so big tufts to creat new plant and I reckon it will be faster than using smaller suckers. showing the mother plant before taking the suckers out and the 2 big tufts repotted. This is my big seed grown sinica, many flowers stalks, still going And this is foeminea made from rooted suckers taken from natural occuring plants here. it had grown a bit but I neglected watering it in summer and it died back a lot, now it has been doing much better and is almost where it was before the drying out.

    E. chiloensis cone is pretty interesting and distinct from other species.. Unfortunately my two biggy specimens are both male. Still hoping on a female on other two smaller ones.

    My equisetina at last seems to wake up strong. Growth looks completely sinica-like in my eyes perhaps a bit more errect/thicker branches. green segments are new growth - blue segments are older branches.

    sinica for me looks its best when it has done all veg growth for the season.. its still growing and it keeps producing flowering stalks now.. I will soon post more pictures... yes I think you mean ph plants.. distachya is faster as a species.

    that sinica plant is ~ 5 years old from seed. here it is today , it always comes back strong when doing new vegetative growth

    yet another photo update My E. altissima, a generally unknown species from morocco, north africa that seems to be a climber - crawler but is pretty different (f.e. more slender) than the local foeminea , has been pretty active, and I repotted one of them, and I saw today the other is making strobili (its a male) E. sinica growing from a myriad point plus growing a side shoot E. nevadensis , a new attampt, young plant that is still not over that seedling stage E. chiloensis branches E.major and mangragora automnalis

    big distachya reacting like a champ to the repotting in even bigger pot

    nothing special, they like full on nutricients though and a big root space.. it goes nuts if you put it in the ground

    Cloning setup

    some basic aeropony kit would work great

    and here is equisettina which was started from rooted cutting and that hasnt grown a lot, starting to grow again after the very mild winter we had overall .. I have high hopes for this years growth!

    I am pretty happy to announce that my bigger seed grown sinica, a male that flowered last year for the first time, has done its first suckers / side shoots.. It must be 4-5 years old. Its also starting to get into vegetative growth again, very excited, its very interesting to see the plant at this phase. PS: my other sinica which was started from rooted cutting does sideshoots/suckers regularly every year making it easy to make more plants

    yep it works - if its not the most warm time of the year, one could use a heat pad which increases the root formation rate a lot...

    The death thread

    wow what a wonderful post! I cant help but think that this guilt is totally un-natural, its engraved to minds from christian religion. religions are just that in their most basic form: they take advantage of peoples awe for death, they manipulate it and make it a self-fulfilling prophecy (and propably transform all this into some kind of neurosis) on another note, I recently found this amazing "death activist" mortician, she has a youtube channel which deals with several death matters in a very positive way, with some humour thrown in... all in all, its very true that our societies "death rites" and customs in regards with death has made us more in awe, more fearful and more in embarassment in front of other peoples death. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caitlin_Doughty I am saying others people death, because thats what there is to fear.. Our own death is not that terrifing
