    takeaway tek alternatives

    I'm all for the takeaway tek. Once you have it dialed in I'm with Halcyon as set and forget. I use new containers, and then recycle them for the job. Also found once there has been fats/oils in them they never really clean up so I stopped using any previously used for food. Getting the moisture right is a key part of dialing them in. I just take my time using a mist bottle, and pretty much just get a feel for the weight. Generally use a good seed raising mix, but sometimes mix a little fine sand in, and Lophs I use a thin sand layer on top out of habit. Sometimes I sieve the mix, especially if there is barky bits. The more organics the more problems IMO. Never had any decent results with coir/peat and cacti seeds myself. I kick em off under fluoros on a heat mat. Have cooked a few when kicking off under sunlight... Lol... So I avoid it in my growing using TT method. Open them up slowly once they've grown a bit, and move into some natural light,crack em open and punch some drainage holes until ready to transplant. Tried a few ways before the TT, but get better results for me using it... Also for some non-spikey things.

    Going going gone

    It's because folk keep stealing from the botanical gardens... 10 years ago it was a glorious cacti house and had a fine trich (any other species) collection. The TBM you can hardly recognize as any pup gets knocked off it immediately. (in raised bed behind it) Was down in December and was sad to see how bad the cacti collection has become. PS-have this in collection and yes it was authorised by staff at the timethe thing was huge when under glass.

    Tasmanians unite

    Because we have a moat around us and some services and shit may slow down ect. This thread may be useful as a point of communication. Some fucker may be able to help another fucker... We are all fuckers now You get the idea... It is a time to unite not divide... Although you gotta stand back a little. Even a simple need we may be able to sort out amongst us. WB

  10. I think all my intensive algal culture course notes are electronic... Have to check back... But I can send em on to anyone interested after I get through my shit filing system. From outta Utas school of aquaculture when they were a powerhouse. It's focused from an aquaculture bent for fish food production , but all the principles the same. Hardest year long unit I ever did at unimostly micro but a little bit of macro algae.

    @SayN They be Atlantic Giant stock, but theres a heap of variety within it. Some have that butternut look and others a rich orange. Some nice and round and some end up like an old bean bag... Lol Lost the initial one, got a secondary growing... Cooling off but. About the same size as the failed one. Will see how big I can get it.
