  •   kwh_atl Wonderful patterns in the bark. 2w
  •   strider1 What caused these patterns-worms? 2w
  •   matt_in_trees @kwh_atl @strider1 indeed! This patterning is a major tell for this species. I think its just a byproduct of how the bark expands as the tree grows. 1w

matt_in_trees Saw some fruit sticking off of a cactus at the #botanicalgardens and took it home. Dug out these seeds. Can't wait to see if they will germinate. Any suggestions? #buffalony #nature #nature_obsession #cactus #cacti #houseplants #indoorgardening #seed #seeds #plant #plantnerd 2w
