    Giant pumpkin contest!!

    I haven't been around for sometime and I feel very guilty as I promised a trophy and it hasn't eventuated due to life and business madness. What I can do is send you two pumpkin Kings a nice fat Len pup each. If Stillman and Waterboy could send me your addresses I will send them of once I cut them. I will cut them in the next month as the weather here is still a bit damp. Good luck to you mad pumpkin growers for this seasons comp. Cheers Got

    Mate I haven't been on here for a while and I started reading this thread and I was sad seeing you selling your plants and then I continued to read and it is like a ray of sunshine. I truly hope this works out for you. Of all of the people that I have watched grow with there collections here you are at the top of the list to deserve this. Cheers Got

  8. HI all I haven't been around much lately but I will be back more regularly soon I hope. One of the reasons I haven't been here is Mrs Got and I made a pact in January this year to give up smoking for good. So on Mrs Got's birthday we tried to stop smoking but we only manged to get down to about five a day over a few days and realizing this wasn't going to work (we had tried this way before and just kept smoking) we stopped totally. By lunchtime we were not happy campers and things just got worse as the day went on to the point that I started wondering if ether of us would survive the day without one of us being stabbed with a sharp object. We work together so there was no getting away from each other so we new we had to do something if we were going to see this through. We had bought a couple of disposable no nicotine e-cigs and even though they gave us some help with the habit it wasn't enough and so I went in search for the fastest way I could get my hands on some e-cigs with nicotine. There was nowhere in WA but I found a online store which had what we wanted and so I bought them and had them express posted. They arrived before lunch the next day we chucked them on charge for and hour or so ( that's all we could wait for) and had our first puff on them. After a few tokes we both looked at each other in disbelief. These things actually worked we could not believe how much different we felt literally within 10 minutes we actually felt normal. From that day nether of us have touched another cigarette and we both are just not interested in smoking any more. I had smoked for over 35 years and Mrs Got had been at it for around 30 years and we had tried most quit smoking aids and any success always ended in going back to smoking. I know this reads like a sales pitch and in some ways it is as I am a true believer that E-cigs or what I am using now is commonly known as a personal vaporizer are the best way by far to give up a habit that was slowly killing us. All of the negative reports that keep on being published by all sorts of headline chasing people don't bother me at all as I have read many positive reports, spoken online and in person to Vapers and read personal reports by so many Vapers that all feel the same as me that they work and there is no proven evidence that they are harmful if used correctly. If they did find that there could be some issues we would more than likely ween ourselves of them quicker than we have planed but they are always going to be better for us than smoking. If any one wants more info on E-cigs/ Vaping I can post links and make suggestions on where and what to buy and I am happy to give any advise that I can. Cheers Got

    Western Australian fertilisers

    I think the regulations were changed in the last year or so. You cant buy the normal liquid ferts here any more ether. I have been using hydro ferts a fair bit and so has a lot of other people that I know so you can actually use a fert with the NPK that you want. I use NPK blue for my main house garden but the stuff that they sell now isn't any where near as good as the old stuff and it isn't even blue any more. Cheers Got

    mamillaria bocasana fred rotting

    Get it out of the pot and start cutting the rot off. When you have got the last of it sterilize your knife and take another thin piece. If you end up with a piece big enough to root dust it with sulfur. If you only end up with small pieces graft them. You can graft very small pieces onto pere. I don't have much time at the moment but i will try and get back to this later. Cheers Got

    I love all of these with their cool spine formations. As Senor Jefferson mentioned you need to always check out the synonyms as we are talking about cacti when one name isn't enough.

Hort. 931 (1898). Mammillaria aselliformis (Ehrenb.) H.P.Kelsey & Dayton 1942 Mammillaria asellifera Monville ex Weber in Bois, Dict. Hort. 931 (1898); Anhalonium aselliforme F.A.C.Weber. in Bois, Dict. Hort. 931 (1898); Pelecyphora aselliformis grandiflora Haage Jr., Kakt. Kultur 2a:206 (1900)]. Turbinicarpus pseudopectinatus Synonym: Pelecyphora pseudopectinata Backeb. 1935 Mammillaria pseudopectinata Neolloydia pseudopectinata Pediocactus pseudopectinatus Thelocactus pseudopectinatus Normanbokea pseudopectinata, Pelecyphora pulcherrima Sabatini (Nom inval.) 1991 All of the above is from Cactus art Cheers Got

    Australia post

    I did three and a half years as a postie in the late eighties. Once you got your run down and if your bike skills were good it was a cool job if it wasn't pissing with rain. You used to be able to go home once you finished your run so if you road hard you could be at the pub for a counter lunch most days if you wanted to and still get paid for the whole day. Sorting the mail before you went out was definitely the worst part of the job followed by the tossers that the post office seemed to employ. Cheers Got

    Cool would love to hear how it is possible to get this in legally. I didn't want to sound like a twat but I would have hated to see someone else lose their collection. Cheers Got
