    MMA on Four Corners tonight

    Very good to see predatory behaviour exposed imo. That couple who abused that woman should be drawn and quartered, to do that to someone who is in pain and trusted them is atrocious. I think that Julian does push the boundaries, setting up a cactus session specifically for tv and charging $170/head for it, not sure what that was meant to achieve? A lot of commentary on Facebook about it today, seems his interview was chopped up to show the side the journo wanted to show to suit her theme of “drugs are bad” Perhaps he has misbehaved, but her “evidence” was based on one Facebook post, by him, 5 years ago. GTFO, tabloid trash journalism. WWA say they’re not in it for the Ching Ching. I call bullshit. Sad that Wile. E felt the need to leave. I really dig that dude

    Wanted Acacia Courtii

    I’ve sent you a message about your vine man, I’ve got some Courtii seed and seedlings I could send your way. I’m pretty busy away from home for the next couple of days but will be able to send a couple of pics to you when I’m back home. Cheers

    Very keen to learn from locals, surely it’s been wet enough this year for subs. I’m nearby to Wagga and would love to find some if anyone can help

    Harvest Ethics

    Thanks @Wile E. Peyote, and no worries I didn’t tag you so understood…totally forgot myself tbh until watching the show the other night. I do recall seeing that one can apply for a licence to collect seed too, so that could further strengthen any potential licensed growers marketing plan. I must admit too, I wasn’t thinking along the lines of that kind of Bunnings scale. Would be cool to pop into your local nursery or Bunnings to pick up a Courtii or two though. If I had the land I’d love to plant a few dozen or hundred, even if only to distribute seed. I know of at least one WA grower of acuminata who sustainably grows and harvests all parts of the tree and sells phyllodes and bark for leather tanning. That would be cool to do with Courtii if it had the same tanning uses.

    @Wile E. Peyote good show last night, I couldn't remember the question from my previous comment on this thread before. See above question. Any insights? Cheers

    Competition post a picture of your favourite flower

    I really don’t need more seedlings, but I’ll chuck this up anyway. My first Supernova flower, she’s an absolute gem

    Courtii counter website survey

    @Wile E. Peyote can send you some info on mine if it helps you learn anything in any way at all? Still quite young, at 18 months and 3 months. But happy to send it to you if it's going to help you at all. Cheers

    Harvest Ethics

    I'm a little curious on this Wile E.....I had a look at the NPWS website on this and Courtii isn't listed on the list of protected plants that a licence can be obtained for, list attached. I'm curious what the advantages of obtaining a licence would be? Is it simply to allow you to sell these plants legally? (which seems to be legal anyway, or at least not really enforced) The costs for a licence are cheap as, so that's not really a barrier to entry. Seems odd that nobody has gotten into this, I guess it's not really something for the home-hobby gardener...more so for nursery businesses? And I suppose another thing is that it's not super hard (while also not super easy) to get ahold of Courtii seed to grow, as you say there are some ex-situ plants producing seed now. Sorry if my questions seem a little low-level or irrelevant, just trying to learn and understand more. Really do appreciate these plants and think we all should do something to help conserve them if we can. Cheers! biodiversity-conservation-act-schedule-6-part-2-whole-plant-species-list.pdf
