Bunnies are too cute ๐Ÿฅน
So sweet!
Thatโ€™s cute!!
Do you know that bunnies are considered as pests in Australia. There are fines for growing them. @HoyaAddict (you know this lol) @Gingerlymom @debbiedo
@SvelteKingfern Yeah a lot of optunia are illegal especially in Queensland , they spread very easily. Always be careful if throwing cuttings away as they can spread like crazy ๐Ÿ˜…
Luckily for me in Victoria optunia are not illegal to own! Just to propagate, sell or possess without a permit ๐Ÿ˜„ yay!
@SvelteKingfern My neighbour has a massive optunia bigger than his house! He gives me the fruit to eat every year ๐Ÿฅน heโ€™s such a lovely old man.
The biggest I've seen was about 3 m high. It was in Queensland ๐Ÿค— @HoyaAddict
@SvelteKingfern Wow bet she was a beauty! They look amazing when older and get corking. They start becoming trees ๐Ÿฅน
Prickly Pear ๐Ÿ˜ @HoyaAddict
@SvelteKingfern Yep. Prickly for sure haha
Yep, it was like a tree. The whole field of them ๐Ÿ˜ @HoyaAddict
@SvelteKingfern ๐Ÿคฃ Thereโ€™s the invasiveness haha. A pad just has to fall on the ground and Boom new plant ๐Ÿ˜ฎโ€๐Ÿ’จ
You don't know how and when. Out of the sudden you have a huge problem (if you're a farmer). They put some bugs on them, to eradicate. And the bugs work. @HoyaAddict
@SvelteKingfern Oh cool! Those bugs must have a feast! Itโ€™s good we have something we can use to keep them under control ๐Ÿ’š
It worked much better than the experiment with the cane toads or European carp ๐Ÿ˜ฑ @HoyaAddict
@SvelteKingfern ๐Ÿคฃ Yeah I was sad when I realised I couldnโ€™t get koi for my pond. But hey goldfish are pretty much the same so itโ€™s all good!
I went fishing for barra or yellowbelly a few months back. All I was catching was that damned carp ๐Ÿ˜ญ @HoyaAddict
@SvelteKingfern ๐Ÿฅฒ๐Ÿ˜”๐Ÿ˜ž they donโ€™t even taste great haha
I didn't even try. Some migrants were happy when I gave them some. @HoyaAddict

And again, you can be fined for throwing them back in the river.
@SvelteKingfern Well I guess you did a service by catching them. Have a reward ๐Ÿ† ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜‹
Thank you soooo much LOL. I caught 15 carps, and 1 yellowbelly ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ @HoyaAddict
I had to go to the supermarket to get dinner ๐Ÿ˜ข @HoyaAddict
@SvelteKingfern Booooo! I hope your next fishing trip is more successful!
Fingers crossed ๐Ÿ˜ @HoyaAddict
@SvelteKingfern Super interesting
I'm glad ๐Ÿ˜ @debbiedo
@SvelteKingfern wow I didnโ€™t know.
I've been reading through all the comments about how well the bunnies grow. I have 2 bunnies left and one is growing all weird the other is its baby. Do you think I could put together in a larger pot and hope they spread? I'm in northern Indiana so it is winter here now.
