Hi,

Here's some quick snaps of my new ~12-inch Trichocereus "Psycho0" x "Super Pedro" hybrids. Not sure if suitable for inclusion but I didn't see them represented here so far.

I've included a flash picture for comparison - the skin looks so different under the strong light! I can take some better pictures once I encounter a sunny day and dig out my decent camera.

Cheers,

OfCows

...and here's a picture of my most mature Trichocereus cuzcoensis (sold to me as Trichocereus peruvianus var. cuzcoensis) for consideration!

Cheers,

This is my Indonesian Kratom plant. It's about 6-7 months old. Hope this helps! :)

Melothria scabra, Mouse melon or Cucamelon fruit. Have a short warm season here and planted it out a bit late, so only got 2 fruit. But it was my first time growing it so still consider it a success! Had read they taste like cucumber with a splash of lemon. Had a yummy cucumber taste, and was quite juicy in the middle. The juice had a great lemon flavor. Beautiful vining plant. Grew in a 3 gallon bucket. With plenty of warmth they're supposed to produce in abundance. So cute!

hey i posted in response to your other post

forreal check out that Acacia ID app, its a pretty nifty tool

according to the lit, longifolia should not be flowering in NSW at this time, says flowers from ~june-oct, fruits nov-jan... but idk how accurate this is

those pics roughly match longifolia, but i think others match better, especially given the flower phenology (wrong season for longi flowers)
well the first pic is pretty blurry, the second one is good, shows true leaves, phyllodes, flowers, seed pods. now we need close ups of each of those, especially flowers

theres over 1200 species of acacia in oz, many are able to hybridize
if you want a fairly definitive ID, we really need measurements, in mm. not trying to be too particular here, thats just how IDing Acacia goes, and distinguishing between two close species.
i can estimate the width of your hand just as well as i can that pen, but it doesnt help with mm measurements
the difference between some species is a matter of millimeters

these are some questions we should try to answer to get a good ID:

phyllode length & width, phyllode shape, nerve #?
leaflet count & dimensions?

close up pics of the flowers, the spike they are on, the connection of the flower spike to the main stem
- are there tiny hairs on the flower spike?
- how many parts are in each flower?
- do the flower spikes branch? (panicle)
- or are they singular spikes? (raceme)
- how long are the spikes?
- do the flowers start immediately from the base of the spikes?
- or is there some stalk space between the branch, before the first flower on the spike?
- are the individual flowers directly on the spike (sessile), or is there a bit of a stem raising them away from the spike?
- how many spikes are present at each leaf axil?

how many seeds per pod?
what are the dimensions of the seeds?
what are the dimensions of the seed pods?
do the seed pods have a distinctive bulge where the seeds are, or are they rather uniformly shaped?
are there tiny hairs on the pod?

thats just a start. i shit you not. acacias are serious botany, they demand respect- if you want to learn the identity of your new friend, you may need to get rrrreal close & personal with it!! but we can do this, with some close up pics including mm measurements!

this is definitely an interesting acacia, so dont get discouraged. If you are willing/able to share seeds, i think lots of members here would be very appreciative. especially if we can get to a solid ID. help me help you help us ;D ;D
