  1. would planting a 12 month old Argeyia Nervosa out in central queensland weather cause any problems, I've found a nice spot behind some native trees where it only gets full sun for only a quarter of the day followed by filtered sun for the rest. As it is getting cooler I am thinking of maybe leaving it till november/december when it heats up again as previous winter it dropped all leaves and i was uncertain it was going to live, fortunately it has and seems to be the strongest out of al the argeyia I've grown from seed (ten in total, all the others died in winter and never got past the second set of "heart" shaped leaves?).

  2. Why would he be located in Israel in the first place if he was the executive of this company, Isn't Israel one of the countries the government have been intercepting and stopping people from travelling to? I wonder what connections he has there, and weather they happen to be ISIS supporters or hired gun's that he has come across in his Travels, Interesting to see what happen's with his facebook rant, and to weather anything happens to this guy he was threatening on a public forum. You'd think someone as old as him would know posting incriminating statements on such a open outlet like facebook is a big no no, hopefully his actions don't negatively impact the company.

  3. what a fuckstick.. openly advertizing illegal alkaloids in the descriptions. seems pretty dumb to me..

    was wondering where he mentions the alkaloids in the description? the way robdmt has listed his product descriptions seems pretty covert, though his name is an obvious giveaway...

    there's another seller also named awesomeacacia who sells acacia confusa exclusively http://www.ebay.com.au/usr/awesomeacacia?_trksid=p2047675.l2559 he mentions alkaloid content though so :BANGHEAD2:

  4. interesting to know how long it takes before ebay catches on, they are quick to take down any lophophora plants if they are listed as such. Usually the sellers i have bought from call them button cacti and might slip in a LW or LD depending on species.

  5. I think that even if you grew a few plants that are somewhat dubious in there legality, that if you have multiple different cacti/succulent species around them then there should be a good case to claim ignorance on what the plants are/do. Just my opinion as i have quite a few cacti and am continuously buying more from bunnings/nurseries and local markets. Even scored my first TBM from this nice old lady after getting to chatting at a market, she sold me over half of her collection of plants including some advanced Madagascar palms, one of which is now happily thriving in my front yard :lol:

  6. Damn it i knew i should of just manned up and sent that pic :wave-finger::ana: , any way here is my entry for the second clone.


    The picture attached is the first plant i ever was able to propagate from seed, an Argeyia Nervosa Var. Speciosa that i bought from SAB in the early days of lurking on this site. I remember when i first saw the little fella pop up i was so stoked that i slightly pissed myself due to excitment. He is now a lil over a year old and still going strong, will end up putting it on a trellis in part sun part shade once it starts getting a bit warmer. This plant is the whole reason i started getting into and collecting ethnobotanicals *edit* to propagate this plant i ended up using some sand paper to remove the tough husk around the endosperm, leaving only a thin layer of the woody husk between it and its contents. I then soaked the seed for about 3 hours before planting in 50/50 sand and garden dirt, took about a week for the first HBWR to pop up

    P.S. If it helps me get win this round i will post a dick pic for everyone to see :innocent_n::wink:

  7. Hey all,

    I was looking at buying a few advanced cuttings from the growers here, I would prefer to make payments via PayPal but bank transfer can be arranged. I am looking to buy a 30cm trichocereus scopulicola a 30cm trichocereus Brigessii and last but not least a 30cm trichocereus Pachanoi. If possible can pictures of the plants on offer get posted here and i we can discuss pricing :innocent_n:

    :wub: Thank you :wub:

    *edit* found some cheap cacti on ebay

  8. Hey guy's it has been awhile since I posted on here, and I have recently gained an interest in the prickly lettuce (aka lactua serriola) which is said to have similar if not more pronounced qualities then L.Virosa? My question is how potent can the processed resin be, as i am hoping to use the abundance of plants that i have been able to find to try and break away from smoking other more addicting herbs :wink:

    This is more so because it has been taking a toll on me and my ability to work and with out this other herb i find it extremely difficult to get to be sleep at night often tossing and turning for hours on end, only to get a few measely hours sleep for the next work filled day. Would the effects from this plant be in anyones experience a worthwhile endeavour for a goodnights sleep? Thanks in advance :worship:

  9. Hey micromegas I apologize if you didn't like the book, It does seem to be a bit rushed with alot of spelling mistakes and the occasional missing word. But in answer to your question the only reason i bought this book was it was the only one to come up when I searched for datura in Amazon books. I didn't mind it personally, though as you said it lacks alot of the purported detail that you would expect from someone who was legitimately under the tutelage of the Brujo's in Veracruz. I can understand your not liking this book due to lack of details, I mean seriously a quick google search uncovers more in the ritualistic usage of datura then reading through here.

  10. with the caapi i would just plant it straight away in as big a pot as you have until you plan on putting it into the ground or somewhere more permanent. Caapi are strong as hell in regards to abuse, the amount of times i thought mine was dead after heavy rainfall or to much sun and then to have it shoot back up is amazing. as for the psychotria I honestly can't comment as i've ended killing the few i had growing :( either way good luck mate
