    Starting out as a real dummy

    I've been seeing a bit lately in relation to using store bought pre cooked rice that you put spores or liquid culture into. It's already sterile and hydrated so you get to skip the whole pressure cooking part. I've never tried it but it could be a good place for a beginner to start also.
  2. Awesome grouping of fungus nonetheless with bonus someone getting done double demerits

    They're taking over! Possible Gyms?

    Never got a 100% ID, they're most likely a gymnopilus sp. However not sure which. There's only a few genus out there I'm seriously confident identifying
  4. A previous job of mine involved dealings with the taiwanese people who are prone to the giving of gifts. Luckily for me these gifts would often involve highly specialised and expensive teas. As someone who had only had black cafeteria tea before I was blown away by the range of subtle flavours and styles they had. a real eye opener.

    Steve might be better off commuting from Newcastle or Maitland.

    Where to look/find/aquire mushrooms

    Strong words from ethnoob and not entirely incorrect. Made me laugh though.

    Where to look/find/aquire mushrooms

    Hi Steve, I actually have some spots in that area. It's a great region and coming into a great time of year for your search. If you want to play with some though there's also a mushroom farm on Medowie road where they sell a few varieties. They're called navia I think.

    Pressure cooker

    .Hmm my current one is 8l and is just really restrictive. Definitely can't get a bag in there. I'll be considering the 12 just concerned I'll be shopping again in a month or 2. The presto is over $200 though so it's a big step up.
  14. Brilliant I just embarked on my own journey with this plant. Ordered one yesterday before even seeing this post.
  15. forgive my poor cactus knowledge I'm still learning. The question relates to the attached photo which is of Eileen. She was root bound and had a funky top when she was very nicely gifted to me. Since then I have been looking for happy places around the yard and she has since taken off with new growth. I want to know if I can cut that part off so that I have 2 or I should wait till she is much bigger. total height maybe 60cm the new growth i'd say about 20cm. I then started thinking about some of the pachanoi I have that have come from seed. They are maybe just over a year old and only 5 - 10cm tall. Can they be cut? when is too young etc.

    How old can a cactus be to take a cutting?

    well basically the idea was to take the healthy new 20cm or so off the top and hope that they both kept growing. the small cuts were just a shower thought. It this a good time of year to be doing that? Next photo right way up I swear ahha I think stripping the exif is what made it sideways

    [Question] Identifying Gourmet/Medicinal Mushroom cultures

    just my 2c but generally the agaricus varieties etc will be a lot fresher at the supermarket so your success rates will be higher. As far as the gourmet varieties they don't have as high a turnover rate and are in plastic with glad wrap on top so it's a bit of a hotbox in there for contamination. if you have a local mushroom place or farmers market you may get fresher stuff.

    RARE SEEDS - $15 Diploglottis campbellii

    A lot of sources say that a drink can be made from this. I'm currently growing diploglotis australis. Does anyone have a recipe/method?

    Does someone legally have to have an identity?

    the sovereign citizen thing doesn't hold up in court unfortunately. You can't as far as I know opt out of the system you can only control how much involvement you have in it.
