    maybe a bridge x juuls giant. but probably not, i just thought i might explain the relatively small spines

    Trich ID

    it is azureocereus hertlingianus by my eye. but that could synonymous with Browningia hertlingianae.

    Three Tricho IDs

    "However, a friend bought 5 clones off of him as T. bridgesii and they were definitely the "Super Spiny" clone. This could be just down to the wrong plants getting packaged up. I thought I better mention that it had been sold before under a different name." no they weren't, he also brought a 'super spiny' log which is quite different from those 5 clones. the 'super spiny' is a very dark green where as that 'bridge-whatever-it-is' (pic 2) is a light waxy blue colour with the weird wiggling lines along the ribs

    first seed grown bridge?

    not like any of my bridge seedlings, they dont seem to develop spikes for a few weeks and just look like jellybeans with a split at the top. cool tho. i have had a strange little plant with leaves sprout in the row i planted some ariocarpus seed

    How Long Are Seeds Viable for?

    i think the harsher the natural conditions of the species the longer the seed will stay viable for, eg: saguaro seeds can apparently last a hundred years staying dormant and waiting for the exact right conditions. but it seems the fresher your seed, the more of them you will get to germinate.

    Largest Living Organism

    david attenborough said the largest living structure is the great barrier reef coral is cool, i wish i could grow it
  13. i have noticed a few off my seedlings melting away over the last couple days, could this be the start of some sort of infection? could anyone suggest a safe fungicide/ other method of saving my wee friends? any suggestions very much appreciated!
  14. hey i was wondering if anyone knows if cacti can be planted in soil with pine trees growing around them? we are looking at a primo wee spot for an outdoor cactus and succulent garden which gets great sun and is nice and dry, only thing is this is at the bottom corner of a pine block, and i know pines are acidic, would this acidity damage/kill the roots and or the plants eventually? cheers, kea

    seedlings dying do i need some fungicide?

    i got the seeds from zelly, sowed at the start of april. so just over a month old. had a few albinos, some are still alive now which seems longer than they should survive.

    seedlings dying do i need some fungicide?

    it cant be too much light or sunburn as they dont get very much, they sit below the level of the window and are in chambers, also getting into winter now, i thought about maybe its too wet so have been keeping the lid off for a few hours at a time. i saw a few little fly like things hanging around the one tray that i have had things die in. no worms or noticeable mould or fungi. it has only taken about 5-8 of my seedlings but they just kind of loose their turgidness and then wilt like a minature balloon unitl they are just a wee green speck. but it happens quite fast like, 24-48hrs they are gone, from looking fine. i will try repotting them all into a clean container with new soil and pumice. thanks for your suggestions i will keep looking for defining factors. kea
