  1. Bubble wrap makes a good light shade cloth, though it does wear out quickly.

    There isn't a lot of diversity as far as Trichocereus go and the owners don't seem too interested in pollinating them. The one odd plant we found appears to have grown by its own means.
  9. Simplicity is underrated but in the realm of taxonomy I think it is boring and inept

    quick cuttings question

    i was thinking in the very long term and it depends on the cactus, and it is more of a hunch sorry

    quick cuttings question

    in the long term a tip is much better as the entire central column swells to support the size of the plant

    weeping black sores

    it has been really favorable conditions for fungus/rot in melbourne recently, all my cuttings left outside have picked up spots. I think it will dry out soon and they should heal up fine by themselves, I would leave them be unless it starts getting worse over the next couple of weeks.

    sowing out hoodia

    Pollinating Hoodia is a very involved and tricky task. When I grew Hoodia in NZ I let the flies come into the glasshouse and they pollinated the Hoodias. Always grew the seed in the same conditions as cactus seed: diffused light, approx 28C, humid, with cooler night temperatures. They're very fast growing.
