  1. Well here she is in all her glory. Bruce's mum. :D She is only 1.8m max in height, and as you can see fron her stature she IS very different to Eileen. No spine shapeshifting, Fully mature spines still big and thick. Hope this pic clears things up a bit. It is a very nice hybrid indeed. Now he is known as "Bruce"

    Coco Fiber to the rescue!

    Heyall. Around a year ago i de-grafted my prize loph. The old myrt stock has withered away due to the parasidic action of the mature loph being on there soo long.. Heres a pic from back then when it was first de-grafted and my first attempt at repotting and trying to induce roots. She looks nice but is almost half size in this pic, compared to what it used to be on the stock when healthy. This attempt failed. After 3 months post cullous, not root formation was observed. I decided to remove the poor thing and bring it inside over last winter as i didnt want any unwanted nasties to creep up with the oncomming rise in humidity. It already had a little rot set in, but nothing bad at all. I then tried to re-graft to a pachanoi, which also failed for reasons unknown, perhaps due to the harder "cork" now produced at the base. I cut off the cork and tried again, again no luck, just rejection. Obviously she didnt want to be on another stock again! Now, back to the headline of the story I visited t st Tantra one day a while back. He mentioned to me that he has found that sick mistreated lophs do very well in coco fiber. I took it upon myself to have one last try with my now shriveled baby. I used premium coco fiber, with about 20% perilte, moistened and chucked in the pot. Dropped the loph on top, and gave it a little twist to snuggle her into her new bed. Only around 10mm deep. I have kept the water up once or twice a week, barely letting her dry out. Heres the result: Nice and fat and rooting like rabbits!! Im soooo happy . After many attempts to generate roots, the coco fiber mix worked a treat!! Thanks a million tantra, you saved my prize baby!(but i love em all the same..) You can see she is taking on water and putting on size once again. Hopefully this helps someone out there having similar problems, and with the increase of peri grafts lately, im sure there will be plenty or de-grafting going on in the near future!! Bd.
  3. Well here she is. Now will you peeps believe me that she is not Eileen!! Totally different stature. Only 1.8m high. Soo beautiful.

    t.bridgesii or hybrid?

    This collection of a t.bridgesii is twice as thick in girth as any bridgesii I have encountered before, If you take away the spines// you would swear its a pachanoi... maybe a hybrid? Total height was no more than 1.8m. The motherplant had at least 25-40 main arms, all upright. (22inch pot)

    Cooking/Recipe forum?

    Hey'all As an avid herb-head and foodlover, Ive always wanted to share recipes from all over the world. It just so happens that most great food involves a number of herbs and spices . Most dishes share great cultural aspects too, with the use of the herb or spice going back quite some time. Sometimes as with curries etc medicinal value is added to the meal. Really, ethnobotany includes the uses of spices/herbs in our foods, and for me this is a daily occurrance. I was wondering if there are also like minded foodies here? Im sure there are some great delish recipes out there waiting to be shared What do you all think? I know there is plenty of recipe sites out there, but the special nature of our community lends itself to special herb use from all around the world... BD.

    Plant to help with anxiety?

    Too true. Original Sour D produced the worst anxiety ever! And i mean ever!! I ended up calling it "The Evil". Indi good, hazes almost as bad as sourD. Yep Kava although high does can also be a bit weird. Cali poppy or scullcap tea with a bit of passionflower are also great calmatives.

    Help moderating my pot intake

    Exactly. In fact im pretty tired of people blaming pot for this, that or the other. If it effects you in the wrong or not nice way. Stop smoking!! Those that continue to run the gauntlet deserve the problems they encounter, mental or physical. FFS, if your body or mind is not reacting well to it, STOP! If you cant stop by yourself go see a therapist or hypno. NO drugs should be substituted at all costs. This teache you or your mind nothing about having to deal with coming down. I smoked for 15years, all day every day. I didnt get de-motivated ever, never a couch potato, it was a positive influence until other factors changed its effects on me. Once i knew this i stopped. Simple. Cold turkey. No supplements, not nothing. Just walking and water. Everyone is different but to blame a substance is futile. Its your brain thats causing the problem, and the sooner you realize this the better. Yeah i had to put up with taking 2 hours or more to fall asleep, for a year almost, but what do you expect when every night was capped off with a spliff or two for the last 15 years? I still love the plant, and am happy to purport its pros and cons, nothing has changed. Each strain is different and you cant just compare pot with pot. I am /was a pot connoisseur. Laugh if you want, but there is no way you can compare two strains/landraces from each end of the spectrum. They are far too different in effects. Smoke free for almost 2 years now. No prob, easy as. Happy to sit with smokers, happy to roll for anyone, but i just wont partake. If your a casual user, and not encountering any problems, dont worry, no need to stop or think you have to. You will know when its time to stop, your mind and surroundings will notify you. You just better bloody listen when it happens and take heed. BTW, I only ever smoked pipes or spliffs, neat. Never bongs, its just seems such a dirty, yucky, disrespectful and forced way to ingest such a nice plant.

    Bliss n Eso

    Lucky we still have Baz (Dj Debris) from the Hoods. On Saturday night he was in a pretty hardcore car accident. He and 3 other mates were stationary in Baz's car and they got slammed into by a speeding drunk driver while waiting at an intersection. Baz pretty much took most of the hit, broken ankle and other minor injuries. Lucky they were in his big ass Chrysler not some tiny shitbox cause things could have turned out pretty bad... Everyone else was pretty much ok, not sure about the pissed driver that hit them tho! Long live Aussie hip hop!!

    Grow your own Drugs - James Wong Season 2

    First season was reasonably good, some just ok bits but good to see a program like this out in the mainstream. ;)

    new car advice?

    I pushed really hard for that deal, your right, they dont make too much, but usually the 10% rule applies, less 10% and thats what you should get it for, leads be to believe the make around 20% on markup or around that. Each car is differnt tho, depending on imports, new models coming, stock on hand or facelift models on the way etc etc The more expensive the car, the more you can haggle, ie new landcruiser, youve got almost 10k to play on. They will do the ol "i have to check with my manager" garb, let em play, tell them youll buy today like Sly said. Sounds like Sly is on the ball for sure! My mate has a jetta and loves the thing. He got the turbo model. Nothin but praise.

    new car advice?

    I agree with Sly on the hit em hard approach. I pushed for 5k less than what they wanted, ended up getting it for 3.5 almost 4k cheaper. Play the game, and play it hard. Its not in my nature to bargain, but screw em, they are making plenty on each car. Its a good quick way to learn your limits

    new car advice?

    Ive got a 09 Corolla. Nice, not heaps of balls but you can rev the ring outta it, still a quick little car (actually not that small with surprising amount of cabin space), and handles really well. Would be a good option. I also looked at the Mazda 3, but didnt like the new nose on it, it looks like a huge bloody smiley face!! Pic of my rolla.... done plenty of work to it so far... Im also one for the Honda Accord Euro, slick, bloody neat car, with a neater interior than the Corolla. The softness of the plastic in the interior of the Corolla is the only thing im not happy with... nothing a bit of leather or alcantra cant fix tho. Mazda 6 MPS is also killer. But is that around 40k? You could also look at the Mazda 3 MPS - i just cant get over how sh*t the front end looks tho... why oh why did they ruin such nice styling with that front end?? Oh, and if you get a black car, expect to be cleaning it twice a week with monthly polishing and 2-3 monthly clay bar work to keep it schmick. LOTS of work.

    First Bruce flowering!!

    Hey hey. I updated the Oz clone thread this morning with an unopened Bruce flower. My little crazy dog was barking like mad tonight, so i wen tout to see what was up. I found my little mate barking at Bruce!! I could smell the sweet slight citrus aroma as i got near... Look at the lovely show... I have collected pollen, apparently M&D is open tonight, such perfect timing, hopefully they both are still receptive tomorrow night! Bd

    First Bruce flowering!!

    Heya all. Well this arvo i noticed that the Bruce flower had aborted. Spewin! Ah well, maybe next time. I hope some bird didnt decide to sit on it or something, cause i cant remember if they normally drop quite this early. Im disappointed as you can imagine, but im happy to be able to view and inhale the sweet perfume for the first time... Osprey, I dont have any photos of the M&D flowers sorry, maybe someone else here can may have taken some pics.. Ill ask around.

    It's lack of balance that makes skunk cannabis do harm

    Ive posted this before, and it has been widely discussed here also. Check out this book if your interested: cannibinoids as theraputics This book used to be avail for download on a few torrent sites... And this thread here: Heavy hit: cannabis syndrome alert

    First Bruce flowering!!

    Nute deficiency could cause some colour difference. I have never really let Bruce go this far without food.. or water. Im even scared to pump him full of water in case that causes him to drop the fruit. Its tough to see your fave cactus looking so sickly.. but it may be for the better. I have no idea if this is why he decided to flower this year, or if it was climatic conditions. The flower fully closed today, spewing. Normally for me they stay semi closed for the next day and usually have one more night in full bloom. Looks like this bridgesii may only be a one nighter. So, today i got fresh M&D pollen, and forced open the tight flower, and impregnated the flower. Hopefully this works! fingers crossed!! so nervous!! I honestly haven't smelled any other bridge flowers, so cant really say. To me it was like jasmine, blood orange flowers and some other soo sweeeet smell. Divine. Thanks everyone, im proud to be able to show the pics to you all, Strangey, Enjoy your floral spectacular tonight.. inhale deeply my friend!

    Happy birthday to that genius who is evil

    Happy Birthday man. Enjoy !! Bd
  23. Well after neglecting Bruce for the last year (hoping to induce flower) looks like i have been lucky. Although i think the weird rain early on this summer may have more to do with it, amlst all bridgesii that have never flowered before have decided to this season M&D a friend had decided to, and now Bruce. Poor Bruce hasnt been fed or watered at all this dam hot summer, He is a yuky lime colour, and now showing signs of de-hydration. When i saw the first sign of a flower bud i held back on everything. It took soo soo long for the bud to form, then yesterday i noticed this: :D Awesome huh? :D Ill collect some pollen as well as try to make a hybrid x between M&D and Bruce. Should be a lovely X if all thing go well.
  24. Ok, Both SB and I collected Bruce from the same location, I dont think SB had named it, after we had a chat re collection point, we realized it was the same. It was then clear that bruce and SB's cut were one in the same. Your spot on PD, i think soil/nutrient or viral infection is probably the cause of the monstrose effects. Although, my biggie is neglected in a pot and hasnt shown any signs, nor has the cut int he ground. Soil composition/viral infection is the only thing i can put it down to. Either way, its a bloody nice, fat, fast bridgesii!
