Oddly enough, it didn't mind the torch at all...

Not so odd - bushfires are extremely common in Australia, to the point where some species of Eucalyptus actually thrive on being burnt once in a while. I'm a little rusty from my old school classes, but some varieties actually need fire to spawn properly, though I'm not entirely sure which, and it may well be another Australian native. I'll have to go look that one up.

The indiginous people would actually light the bush on fire when they moved from one camp to another to 'clean' and 'rejuvenate' the area they'd been living in.

 Smiley Occasionally I can come up with some useful information.

Aren't bottle brush trees australian too? Speaking of those that need to burn to spawn properly (of course I could very easily have been misinformed on both counts lol)

Bottlebrushes are Australian, but their seeds generally drop either annually or when the plant dies, rather than when exposed to bushfire (although if it kills the plant, then they'll drop anyway...  Roll Eyes).
 
I do have a small correction on my previous post - there is a species of Eucalypt that is native to the Northern Hemisphere, so my presumptions on it being an Australian variety were, well... presumptuous!  Grin Pardon me!

However a primary characteristic of most Eucalypts is that the seed pods generally won't drop until either the plant dies or they are exposed to heat from a bushfire. The seed pods on most varieties of Banksia also require heat (Eg. Bushfire), to open.

I actually had to go looking for this information, but I found some good links that I'm going to be checking out more often... Cheesy

Sorry for hijacking the thread: "And now, we return you to your regular internet broadcast..."
