Hello

I remember a tv program about a tree discovered in Australia a bit later than de Wollemi pine.

The Nightcap Oak.

hey Smurf,

Fuck i'd love to get some roots into the soil beneath that dragon! Looks like you could dig it with your hands!

And High Country, hope you get some seeds! 7 years is a long time to wait and get nothing! We got a couple of similar things flowering around here..... A couple of variegated "sansevieria" looking things, (except it grows like your lilly, only the leaves look like mother-in-law's tongue) massive flower stalks 8-9ft high. They've been there since I can remember, and I've never seen the flowers, untill now. Plants are awesome.


As for fauna around here, I got a blue-tongue that keeps scaring me (looks like a @#$%@# death adder at certain angles....) A 'rail' bird that scoots around the garden and "hoots" at me. a horrible serpent that kindly rids us of rodents, but also craps them out in my 'smoking shed' (wholey christ they stink!!!)

We got them full jet-black "land mullet" lizards around, but when you see one of them, the instant you move a muscle, they've vanished.

these aren't my pics: (just an example)

Also, I found a weird slug the other day.... turns out its a native:
'Red triangle slug
https://i1.treknature.com/photos/320/rt_slug.jpg

weird little fucker has a 'breathing hole' that kept opening and closing.... I thought it'd been attacked, and I could see all these little holes inside the slughole.... fuck it was cool. And yeah, they're natives...

Hi all, hope you dont mind me putting in some pics here of a place i found on my travels.
These are a few from the Valley of the Giants, Tree-top walk near Walpole WA. Suspended walkways 40 metres in the air amongst the tree-tops walking threw 400 year old gums and various flora and fauna. Have several pics but only put a few in here. Hope you enjoy.

Hello

This is the King Fern or Giant Fern, Angiopteris evecta.

It grows (or at least a very similar ancestor) in Australia since the Carboniferus Period, about 300.000.000 years ago.

I know that it grows in North Queensland and Northern Territory, and there is only one growing wild in NSW.

You have there too the Potato Ferm Marattia oreades of the same family, Marattiaceae.

Take care of them.

Greetings
