i think she may have to turn... there is no stopping me when i get a hobby going. you should see my shed... it is full of yabbies in a breeding system that i put together 2 years ago. if i even mention the word yabbie she goes nuts rebutia fiebrigii cajacensis in flower Icon_biggrin

i am trying to make my own cultivar in the yabbie world in my other interest...which leads me to another question. has anyone tried cacti in an aquaponics system. it would be easy to flood and dry out, and would have a great source of food for the plants. i am in the process of building a propagator for my grafting stock and grafts and was thinking of setting it up as aquaponics to increase humidity food & regular watering. what do you guys think? my only concern is algea. i reckon pereskiopsis leaves would be a great source of food for yabbies also.

A CULTIVAR of yabby? LOL!
Sounds like your new cacti obsession is overriding the yabbies. rebutia fiebrigii cajacensis in flower Icon_rolleyes
The term 'cultivar'
comes from cultivated
Variety.
It pertains to varieties of horticultural plants selected for certain characteristics and given particular names.
(p.s. I'm just messin with ya matey i know you mean breed hehe rebutia fiebrigii cajacensis in flower Icon_wink I really ain't pedantic.).

Seriously though, I reckon Pereskiopsis (and stuff grafted to it) would go nuts in an aquaponics or similar hydroponics systems. It have brought this subject up a couple of times in the past but have made no *serious* attempt at it as yet.
BTW slightly on topic root Pereskiopsis in water, it roots faster than in soil. rebutia fiebrigii cajacensis in flower Icon_wink
why on topic? because I have a pereskiopsis growing in water atm.
why? No i wasn't intending to grow it hydroponically I just placed a piece in a clear plastic cup half filled with water to root it by the forementioned method.... then couldn't be bothered to pot it up. actually it appears quite healthy.. roots are spiralling around and around the bottom of the cup. I put some miracle gro in there to help it along. so there you go simple hydro pereski. maybe i should graft something to the top...
