    That's a beauty of a list, been wanting to get into mycology for a while but haven't the time to properly engage in it as of yet. Anyhow that is a great selection indeed : )
  5. Looks like the echinopsis ruby visions x terscheckii and echinopsis calochlora are going to flower, will be trying at making a cross both ways of these two : )

    I don't know but i wouldn't be surprised if it works for at least a short time, especially if you make a bit of a rock pool or in still water, they are strong alkaloids and as far as i know it has goodly amounts in it, D. Myoporoides x D. Leichhardtii has up to 7% I think a good sized bunch crushed a bit and added to the water as fish poison or to stun animals seems fairly plausible

    Native plantain edible leaves, the seeds when wet turn into a jelly/mucilage and used as a traditional herbal cure for constipation. Apparently when eating the dry seeds they swell in the stomach and add bulk to faeces. Colonists in NSW made "sago" puddings by adding boiling water and sugar to the seeds

    looking for Christia obcordata

    Man that is a cool looking plant, would be great for the garden just to look at : ) Found this info - The plant has been cultivated as a cover crop and soil improver, This species has a symbiotic relationship with certain soil bacteria; these bacteria form nodules on the roots and fix atmospheric nitrogen. Some of this nitrogen is utilized by the growing plant but some can also be used by other plants growing nearby. Good luck finding it, it is a real stunner. If you find seeds available somewhere let us know : )
