Hey folks, I have two queries one is a cactus growing in the ground down the road from where I live and I would love to know what species it is. The other is a cactus gifted to me by a friend who picked it up at the SAB nursery. It's an impressive looking thing and I'm wondering might it be a cuzcoensis? It is labelled "Echinopsis sp. SABO22" Let me know if any more pictures are needed. Your thoughts are much appreciated :-)
Heyo! So I recently bought a shed frame in order to build a large greenhouse, however the land that I was going to rent in order to set it up fell through. The frame can be set up in 5 sections, each one 2m long, so whether the land is small or large the dimensions can be one of below: -Width: 4m -Height: 3m -Length: 4-10m I've looked on Gumtree and posted in other places but no luck. Pretty much just asking if anyone here know's someone or who has a bit of spare land that they'd have a lend of to me I would prefer it to be in the Northern suburbs of Melbourne, but North West or North East is also good. Looking to set up a small nursery so I can propagate some of the tasty cacti specimens that I have Cheers!
So I recently visited the kind and caring Cok Grootscholten in Netherlands and enjoyed the company of his ridiculously sexy as all hell nursery. He's been collecting cacti since 1952 and fuck.... No words just wet dreams, again I didn't want to leave and struggled not to kiss every cacti that he owned. Not only was his nursery beautiful, but he was willingly giving me cactuses that I would've either had to pay much money for or killed to get, for free. Even offered me a cutting of his crested lophophoa.... (which we decided not to because it was winter and we didn't want the cactus to die). He said that he was happy to do it because he knew one day I would do the same to another young cactus lover..... :') ( bless his soul) Not only this, but he gave me a pup of a rare Gymnocalycium brucii that had dark flowers (which supposedly in longer exists in the wild?) sowed by the one and only Alberto Vojtech Fric himself back in 1935... ANYWAY TIME FOR PHOTOS BECAUSE THEY EXPLAIN BETTER THAN WORDS! GET YOUR TISSUE BOX READY!!!!!! That last photo is what keeps the greenhouse warm during the winter. There was still so much more that I didn't take photos of......
I have three mature carob trees- last year I was told those trees are female and was seeking pollen This year I do some checking. All my trees are male. All of them. And I've waited heaps of years to find this out Geez I have the shits about this, what a waste of time Bisexual trees are available grafted at Daley's, at $100 for a mature tree and $40 for a seedling, should be available soon But I figure I won't bother with bisexual trees, I have a pollen donor, I'll just kill two of the male trees and whack some female ones in Does anyone know of a source for grafted female carobs? Or definitely identified female carob trees for planting ( I'm unsure if cuttings strike ) Interested to purchase at a reasonable price. Spending $100 needs some serious justification right now, even for an advanced female carob tree
