    I was a real annoying pushy dumb arse brat here back in the day (old posts). I apologise for my obnoxious behaviour and any/all posts that contributed nothing to the greater knowledge that is contained in the vaults of this great community from which I learned so much.

    I used to have a big problem with alcohol and not many friends so would just get on the forums here and drunk post ... it’s embarrassing. I wish I could just delete it all but probably can’t and in a way it’s a good reminder of what a little xunt I was and still have the potential to be.

    Being older now and still visiting these pages for the wealth of knowledge. The quality of people that have participated over the years here makes me feel grateful for this resource.

    Acacia obtusifolia flowering December

    It sure is a beautiful specimen
  4. Aww man, I gave away my whole collection at one point. To a friend though so they are still in my not to distant orbit if I want to make a journey to visit… Id take these off you in a heartbeat. WA is just a bit of a drive from NSW :/ Hope you get that bike to where you want it ✌️❤️

    Why my Syrian Rue never flowers?

    Yeah, gotta be a market collecting the seed and selling to middle eastern shops I’d think… maybe too labour intensive to make a buck though. Interesting that harmaline is being looked into as a herbicide. That would be interesting to see on a bunn1ngz shelf lol

    Raising A.Phlebophylla

    Nearly 12 year old thread… Originally started because PD shared some seed with me. None of mine made it unfortunately… I passed the remainder on to a local nursery and asked them to start them for me and I would happily pay tube stock prices when they were up… the nursery went out of business and that was the end of that! It’s great to see others have had success and are now managing flowering and seed collection from home grown plants. Wonderful! How far the internet has come since then!

    B.caapi dropped 85% of its leaves, HELP! :(

    My caapi has bounced back nicely. I’m in the process of taking picture a day to do a time lapse video - but that’s gonna take a while. Attached is it yesterday. Amazingly even though it lost nearly every leaf the green aphids are still maintaining their little Ayahuasca home. I have been brushing them off by hand which squashes them when there are leaves with little population outbreaks. I don’t really want to spray it with chems although am not so opposed to an organic contact pesticide like pyrethrin…. Anyhow. Glad I didn’t completely stuff up. Nearly time to take some cuttings as insurance!

    Why my Syrian Rue never flowers?

    Maybe trying to mimic the areas where it has become a bugger to eradicate… link is to South Oz fact sheet for ‘African rue’. https://data.environment.sa.gov.au/Content/Publications/pests_rue.pdf

    B.caapi dropped 85% of its leaves, HELP! :(

    Repotted the vine in a lovely big new pot with some sweet sweet soil. She’s settled in nicely over the last few days. It’s got loads of new growth sprouting from nodes all over the place. Looks like it’s going to be just fine :) I’ll post some pics when the growth is a little more substantial.

    B.caapi dropped 85% of its leaves, HELP! :(

    Yeah the little green buggers have been a real pain to get rid of… when it was smaller I could wipe them off the leaves and stems by hand which killed them a plenty being so small and soft…. As it took off though that wasn’t much of an option. Anyhow, cheers, might give the Dustbuster idea a go. The root system of the vine seems as vigorous as the above ground part, it has very quickly grown into its various pot sizes. Definitely not one that is happy to sit in the same sized pot for long! Ill keep the thread posted with recovery pics if that’s the way it plays out! cheers again

    Thanks mate, really appreciate that. I’ll pot it on tomorrow and prune it back a bit. Hopefully with a bit of ICU treatment it will pull through. Such a beautiful plant to grow. Amazing the amount of growth it will put on in just a day or two. It’s taken over the blind it’s in front of a few times now! Would be very rewarding growing in the ground but that isn’t possible here. thanks again
