    Looking for Acacia Phleb or courtii seedling

    Hi there, I'd be happy to trade some Courtii seed for some Loph seed if you are interested? Cheers, Rhyz

    Banisteriopsis caapi seeds wanted

    Hi, Glaukus, yes I agree that it would not be feasible to grow outside in Tas, however, I do have a large (25m long) conservatory in which tropical plants do well so suspect it would go well there too.

    Banisteriopsis caapi seeds wanted

    Thanks for the offer Groot but TAS quarantine rules prohibit plants in normal post or courier. One work around is to engage the services of a plant concierge who would treat and hold the plants at your end for a month or so them transfer to TAS. Big $$ for that service so I will wait a while and see if some seed turns up. Might be back in touch if nothing turns up. Cheers, Rhyz
  10. Can trade Acacia Courtii seeds or happy to pay $$$. Cheers

    Tripsis and Buttsack, if you are still on the hunt PM me your details and I'll send you some freshly harvested seed from the trees in my yard. The pods have just started to dry out.
  12. Hi Humbolt, the Phlebs are definitely much harder to get started. Approx. 50% - success rate vs approx. 90% for most other species I've tried. I have generally followed the guidelines found here: https://herbalistics.com.au/acacia-phlebophylla-cultivation-from-seed/. I will have some fresh seed from my garden in 6-9 months so will continue the experimentation and report back.
  13. I have a few Acacia Courtii, Acacia Maideni, Acacia Floribunda, Acacia Obtusifolia, and Acacia Acuminata (broad and narrow) plants that I'm looking to give away to locals in Tasmania. Also, I will be trimming approx. 30 Courtii trees over the coming weeks so happy to give away some material for cutting propagation. PM me if interested.
  14. Hi Humbolt, My research led me to believe that R. Japonica and Rhizobium sp. would be the most suitable (based on the info I could find on the web - links below). There are a multitude of other strains that may or may not be more beneficial but I've only tried these two so far. I must admit that my approach is more trial and error than rigorous science. In summary the path I followed was: https://www.abc.net.au/science/articles/2002/09/19/674726.htm http://www.cpbr.gov.au/cpbr/projects/wattle-grow/index.html (Note that Wattle Grow was bought out by BASF who no longer produces the inoculant as it was not commercially viable. Also see that bradyrizobium was used in the trial) https://www.aciar.gov.au/file/68956/download?token=FE44X5Wy (See table 3 on page 32 for a list of bacteria strains) https://grdc.com.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0014/117221/rhizobial-inoculants-fact-sheet.pdf.pdf (See page 2 for inoculant groups that relate back to the eden seeds website) https://www.edenseeds.com.au/?name=Category-Info-General&category=Inoculant (Web based inoculant retailer) I understand that they are only beneficial for legumes so not suitable for natives in general. The rate of application I've used is approximately 2.5g (Type H ) + 2.5g (Type I) per 50 seedlings. Just mixed with tap water and applied as soon as the seeds are planted. I usually re-dose after about 8 weeks. Note that the Eden seeds do send a method to dose the seeds prior to germination but I've not tried this so far. I hope that is of some help.

    Courtii Struggling - Help?!

    Rupi, they cope with pruning very well. However, I'd try to gauge how supple the stem is. I.e. if it is still pretty supple (i.e. green and alive) and not dried out I'd leave it. In the photo above it looks salvageable - not sure if it has become worse since then?
