    Beards and Moustaches

    Your mo is great Marcel and dick-cember made me chuckle with half a gut full. I am way outer SW Sydney, semi rural stylings and old fashioned sensibilities and the old French Fork seems to portray me as a threat. I have never seen anyone else rocking one though. Standard goatee is the beard dejour around here though. Edit: The pixelation fools no-one, I am squinting and can see you perfectly.

    G'Day all, I love Corriander leaf for salads etc and have tried to grow it for the past 10 years with alot of effort and heartache as it seems to bolt to seed very quickly. I have fertilised, watered, thinned out, shaded, staggered multiple plots etc etc and it is getting to the point of deminishing return. I came across a plant called Culantro (not cilantro) that is widely used in Asia and South America that is touted as Perenial Corriander (many synonyms) that tastes almost identical to but a little stronger than its brother from a different mother. I have read shit loads about it but no 1st hand account of flavour and ease of growth sooooooo Anyone have any experience with this herb? Growth tips etc. All 1st hand info would be much appreciated. Cheers and thanks..........Bong

    Pussy Repellent ?

    I was under the impression it was to stop dogs shitting on lawns as they wont go where its wet and some old bloke got muddled up and put water on his lawn... but in bottles. For some reason it caught on and became popular in the 80's. Now where the fuck did I read that?

    Cool! I have grown vietnamese mint before, the leaf shape was similar but had a purple inner to the leaf and didn't really taste like corriander to be honest. I'm not certain that what I grew and tasted is the same as you have posted so google here I come. Cheers mate.

    How does a cactus "work"?

    They do have a vascular ring and vascular tissue from the ring to the areoles so there is your pathway. Im sure you can find more! Edit: Gunter did a little better and quicker than me

    What did you do to your cacti today?

    I stared at mine for 1/2 hour whilst drinking my morning caffiene enema....... same as I do everyday that I'm not at work.

    Bunoirs.....Really? I pay rent at my local green shed and haven't seen it there but I haven't been looking either. Coarse and prickly seem to be the consensus too. Might have to cut off the serated margins and chop really fine for a salad then but thats alright I can practice my knife skills, or lack thereof. Cheers.

    Awesome Info! Thanks guys, exactly what I was hoping to hear.

    I take it from your 2 topics, which mentions your website 3 times that you would like us to go there.... and order your book. Sorry mate, my computer is broken

    How do they go for you shortly?.... in terms of Corriander flavour sub, ease of growth and amount of vegetative growth whilst flowering for so long?

    I have read that germ rates are lowish ~50% so I will try 50 first and once I have plants I will let them go to seed and I will be sweet. I will PM you when I am confident I have enough or I will update here and you can remind me.

    You want some seed Tripsis? I am getting 100, don't need that many!
  20. Bongchitis


    Yeah I know but how many salads do you have in winter? I know I am wanting the plant to be something that its not and that is why I was looking for an alternative.....just seeing how far I could push the envelope and have realised no matter how good a gardener I can learn to be, I will not achieve my summer goal with it without alot of space and effort. Slow learner I guess. Culantro is said to be far more heat tolerant, I will find out when the seeds arrive.

    Trade/ purchase gone wrong?

    Same here! I have read the thread but cant remember if the order was itemised to the greater audience. Now due to the circumstances if all are OK with it then why not list what was ordered and perhaps we can pitch in to complete the order at the very least.

    mouse over thread description

    I hadn't got that far down the list yet .... posted off the hip. At least I am not the only one that it annoys. Sorry for the OT

    A. fissurates flower buds

    My Ferrocactus forms buds that go dormant if it hasn't had enough water or nutes. When my locale gets a period of rain in the growing season many of my cacti respond by flowering.
