    a jolly welcome to you! I got 5 or 6 iboga fruits to give away, and will split them into two lots. they are just starting to get yellow. I do get frosts at my place, but hope the seeds would still be ok. I don't know if those seeds get damaged by frost, but guess, it's unlikely, because my plants even survived ground frosts. as well a large amount of heimia salicifolia seeds {(please read planthelpers thread named heimia x- talls using only water) or similar name}, and very likely rifat clone seeds!! the rifat seed pods I will not dissect, but chances are, you will find seeds. the iboga seeds, I will only give to people with the right setup and experience, and the promise that you have studied torstens manuals. (: you have to convince me, either by replying to this thread, or privat message that you are the right person for this job. I will pay postage. ph/wc bashers need not apply. have a good one.

    The truth of the story is. Nat is a person. He has grown and given away so many cactus over the years. Alot of those skinny wicked looking bridges he grew from seed and they're all really good plants to have in the garden. Nats a humble guy and is a really awesome grower and isn't a big fan of cactus names, only star ratings. So there really are so many nats. Some have gained particular fame. But the truth is there are no bad ones and if there ever was Nat would woodchipper them for the good of the future genetics of trichocereus. That's probably a four star plant

    Facebook sux. Noobs everyehere, claiming to be experts. So much wrong information and people only wanna believe what they want to. Pure chaos, and no in-depth discussions about anything. The SAB page on FB is OK but not as good as the real thing.

    I second that salvia snuff Is surprisingly active, in every way. when still legal, pulverizing sally by hand and maybe mortar and pestil (cant remember) would once send me breaking thru although the material being pulverized, was halve a body lengh away from my nose... some authors wrote, "it's amazing how those Indians found out about the properties of this plant", that's bs copied from other bs authors, just moving through a salvia thicket, one would notice what this plant can do. or as another example what dried up fallen mitragyna leaves will do for you if you run the lawn mover over them. makes me think one recipe could utilize this plant, as snuff...

    Please dislike this on YouTube dear friends. Note the cops info, the narrative's tone, and whatsherface's comments and questions. Fucking disgraceful: This cop is out there policing someone's private property... of pine forests. I wish cops would come at my beck and call to patrol my property for intruders. Especially dangerous foragers of NON TOXIC mushrooms. This piece does nothing to reduce harm whatsoever, and serves to highlight the fucking ridiculous nature of our drug laws and how they play out in real terms in a cop's day to day duties. Saved some lives that day, not to mention solved some violent crimes too. I think they admit that this sort of policing takes them away from their core duties... Hazardous effects on the body - cops words. This man is not a scientist, nor is he morally superior to anyone else. I appreciate he has seen someone fucked up on mushrooms; not that pretty, particularly if they have no idea what they are doing (because of chronic lack of information) and if they are mentally ill, but shut the fuck up. You do not know what you are talking about. Do law enforcement, and leave the botanical science and research to those whose job it is to do so. I couldn't care less if you would prefer to go to DVs instead of picking someone up to look after them while they are tripping balls. Get a different job bruz. And ABC.. fark mate. Just don't. Gets my heart racing too much.

    Hey Micro, sorry, bit confused now... It was a Rosei#2 label according to your auction thread Is this the same one as your pic above? Anyway, it's an absolute fave and I've not cut it yet as I want to breed with it. I really hope for some blooms this year, I wanna cross it with my 'Halcyon Beast' if possible, I reckon they'd make a good pair. (Sorry to divert the thread)

    Trichos will start to do this when older, but it is not common for the popular aust clones in my experience until quite advanced (with a few exceptions), they tend to get progressively broader by pupping low off of outside branches, forming a densely packed mass like halycon says. I grew a bunch of seeds from around chavin, Peru, these show mid-column pupping as a trait at an early age, it was surprising. In your case, however, I suspect the plant is seeking light, the lower areoles are too shaded and crowded to produce the hormones for pupping (my guess). If you grow dense bushes at the base of trichos, they will pup higher up, same with any plant really. Shade has big impact on overall plant form, often positive. I have some plants with very interesting shapes because of this, where they pupped 6ft off the ground (PC). When the bushes are removed, the plant starts pupping from the bottom again. In very dense trichos, the lower branches can shade the interior of the plant, so the main columns in the centre, with time will pup higher up. Nice healthy plants. Edit: I have some plants, a Roseii 2 so-called by its owner, that often aborts flower buds and turns them into branches right at the top. it's a consistent trait. I have to cut the buggers off as it's not a stable situation to have branches that high.

    I make a no till type organic soil mix. It would be too rich for cactis but never needs added fertilisers and actually gets better with age so you get multiple grows from it. 1/3 Peat Moss (certified organic comes in aprox 30kg block for $30 from Agricultural supply stores) 1/3 perlite (available from same place, 100 litre bag for $30) 1/3 either quality organic compost or worm castings or combination of both To make a cubic foot add 1.5 cups of powdered organic fertilizer (available from bunnings) 1 cup of kelp meal (available from agricultural supply shops) 4 cups of rock dust ( available from bunnings but heaps cheaper at Agricultural supply stores or anyplace selling landscaping rocks and top soils) Mix up, keep damp. In 3 to 4 weeks it has finished cooking and will supercharge growing your veges or other nutrient loving plants. If you google the effects of the kelp and rockdust their inclusion is obvious. This mix is far better than anything you can buy. When the plants are finished, rip out the root ball, if you can't shake the soil off it, dryfor a couple of days them chop it up. Add 1/3 total root ball size of perlite, 1/4 to 1/3 cup of powered organic fertilizer, 1/4 cup of kelp meal and 1 part quality organic compost or worm castings ( or combination of both) to 4 parts old soil/root ball. You can keep using this mix for years by repeating this process.

    It's a melted story that one has to experience......then you will know - it's name. Wild horses dragged out the truth from the keepers of it's origin but alas none were capable nor worthy of it's safe keeping. It comes from way way back in the time before dinosaurs and amoeba. It was a fable shared only to fable tellers and foible spellers. The name that mustn't be spoken or uttered. Hence it's unknownence was only spelt in sand and none will henceforth be able to retell - the story on the bridgesii NAT unless you were there at the fair that was the meltednat day -and that's a fact. Do not utter these words again because i would be remiss to remind you of your misguided and misplaced eagerness to attach a monetary value to it's existence.

Keynote guest Dennis McKenna Dennis McKenna's research has focused on the interdisciplinary study of Amazonian ethnopharmacology. He has conducted extensive ethnobotanical fieldwork in the Peruvian Amazon. His doctoral research (University of British Columbia,1984) focused on the ethnopharmacology of ayahuasca and oo-koo-he, two tryptamine-based hallucinogens used by indigenous peoples in the Northwest Amazon. He is a founding board member of the Heffter Research Institute and serves on the advisory board of non-profit organizations in the fields of ethnobotany and botanical medicines. He is the younger brother of Terence McKenna. From 2000 to 2017, he taught courses on Ethnopharmacology and Plants in Human affairs in the Center for Spirituality and Healing at the University of Minnesota. In 2019, in collaboration with colleagues, he incorporated a new non-profit, the McKenna Academy of Natural Philosophy. He emigrated to Canada in the spring of 2019 together with his wife Sheila, and now resides in Abbotsford, B.C.

    For the longest journey I’ve known a calling Home is a fragment of truth that guides from beyond It’s been like living black and white for all I’ve known in life I find true home in where my soul fastens to yours These flames are first breaths of Real in the illusory My deepest yearning is truth yet found surely in each other Our wholeness is truth but truth could never fulfil our spirit So worship above all else this bond perfection everlasting A lost memory of separation fits recognition of hereafter Praying to my very origination calling myself all parts This psychedelic mirror a spark of between I love you

    Looks good Wile E, i'm over at ANU myself. I'm interested to see what you come up with here, and what sort of theoretical grounding you are using. I assume some sort of paper will result? Mostly I'm curious how "trip sitting" as represented on forums, which are largely individualistic and ad hoc, are defined and understood in comparison to closely sanctioned cultural techniques for mediating altered states that may have developed over centuries or much longer - there is a decidedly blurry line between them. Psychologically, this is a perplexing problem and the differential outcomes of participants, of interest, particularly when we start talking about intentional initiation of a "spiritual" states or use to resolve psychological issues. Good luck. Also, those tersheckiis are sweet!

    I'm not sure this place really needs a lot of moderation anymore, its mostly a fairly small group of people and many people only checking in weekly or monthly, some annually. I miss the cactus freaks a bit, many seem to have wandered off. Even back a few years ago when I joined there was a lot more going on... in some ways we are gifted to have such an intimate little group all focused on our plants and their uses. I'm pleased to check in here and read a lot, even if I don't comment so much. Besides, no one wants to see my ugly mug.

    There's no guarantee a crest will stay a crest. I've had Hamilton's Peru crest for about 6 years, got it as a crest, but it reverted and has never gone back. Many crests will produce sports, or pups of normal columnar growth. Its usually a good idea to remove these, as the plant will mostly put it's energy into these at the expense of the fasciated part. I've got some crests I could part with, send me a msg if you like.

    Cheers George, I had a quick look at the channel and I'm still not certain which videos you mean. If you can link the specific videos you want translations for here then I will pass it onto a friend who said he would be able to help out

    No certified organic mixes AFAIK, there are certified to Australian Standards for potting mixes (regular and premium), which is shown by the standards ticks logo on the bag if up to standard. You'd want a pretty shit mix to be worried about accumulating anything. I got pissed once about a bag that had the base of a car aerial in it and windscreen glass... Was concerned about potential hydrocarbon contamination in a cheap one I purchased once. Tossed it. Chem ferts aren't much of a drama... A few minor exceptions IMO, but generally the hobby gardener isn't playing with them. Other contamination such as metals however can be an issue . Have also found furnace slag in a few other cheapies. Osmocote is on the level. Although it's on the richer side so may not be good for all things.
