    covid 19 vaccination

    Sorry to hear that mate. Supposedly the second shot has less side effects for AstraZeneca (Whereas the opposite is true for Pfizer)

    My first lopho 2 pereskiopsis grafts.

    Hi Teonanacatl, Sorry to bring up an old thread. Do you know what the cause of this 'limbo' is?, is there a way to avoid it? I have an ario grafted on pere that isn't plump, yet not shrivelled either; it's been like this for 2 weeks! Thank you,
  4. Hi All, I purchased some Vectobac 12 as which is a form of baccilius thurgensis - israelensis, which is meant to remove gnats. I've followed application rates and even increased beyond the recommend application, yet still gnats! Could it be that the soil is too moist? (Always keep the pere's fairly wet) Could it be the substrate? I thought vectobac would be my cure for gnats, not yet unfortunately Thoughts and advice appreciated! Thanks,

    Vectobac 12as - Larvicide to remove gnats

    Yeah too organic matter / cheap soil mix. They seem to like the kleensorb diatomite which is bizzare lol I've tried de and stick traps so far, guess I'll move onto vegemite (I'm saddened to say, I don't have any in the pantry. Thanks All!

    CO2 mycelium bags

    Interesting mate, I didn't know they were made of mycelium. I just thought people used them to grow canna. Do you normally use a C02 product to help with fruiting?

    Looking for Ariocarpus seeds (Updated)

    Hi mate, The arios I got from you both flowered a couple months back. I also hand pollinated, yet they weren't kind enough to give me seed. Alas! But they seem to be going well

    Ah I have the same one's from Samyod. (Your's look a bigger than mine / but I have been a bit mean to them). I found Samyod's seeds had high germination and for hybrids, they have grown quite well.

    M.speciosa leaf cutting

    Thanks for the kind offer John, but my heat matts are choca block at the moment.

    M.speciosa leaf cutting

    I didn't have any luck either John. However, what you sent definitely had some seeds in the mix, I think germinating fromthis type of seed is very time sensitive (<7 week).

    Nice mate, how old are they?

    P. som seed varieties giveaway

    Great work Glaukus - very generous Are you not legally allowed to sow them? (I've been trying to find out legality in VIC, and could only see that they were determined a noxious weed). Thank you, Apologies, with a slightly different search I found: "It is illegal to take, use, sell or grow poppies without a licence from the Victorian Government. Illegal possession of poppy plant parts or substances derived from poppies is a criminal offence and attracts heavy penalties." I've always seen poppies growing around, and thought it was fine....Guess I should remove the one's from my front yard lol.

    Treat like a Pere or Ario?

    Hi All, I recently acquired a very nice Ariocarpus Reutsus. It has been grafted onto pere (Yet the pere is short / has been buried into the soil) & I believe the ario is starting to form roots, because of this I'm guessing i should water sparingly as though I'm watering an ariocarpus and not the pere? Also, at what stage of root development should I cut out the pere? Apologies that I can't upload photos (My phone was $99 at officeworks and won't connect to the PC lol) Thank you!

    Importing ariocarpus seed

    Hi All, (Sorry, to bring up an old thread) Has the legislation/ process around this changed at all? - I've tried to source some ario seeds locally with no luck (Kots, Godzilla, Scapaharo and a handful of others.) I note a seller on Ebay has a few of the seeds I'm after, and sell phyto certs too. Would this be sufficient to get the seeds in? (I've had a few seeds confiscated in the last 12 months). Thanks!
