  1. Traditionally I've only seen this plant traded as clones. Lately there have been seeds on ebay, so I got some out of curiosity. The seeds I got were obviously thistle seeds and didnt even remotely look like the seeds of a Polygonum, and I'm guessing that as usual all sellers on ebay are buying from the same source. My question is, has anyone ever seen genuine seeds being sold? Or even produced on plants? I've seen the seeds in botanical drawings so I know the plant produces them, even if it is generally propagated by cloning, but as with any very commercial and trendy plant its been hard to find any solid information on the plant itself.
  2. [Link] Of course, in addition to larger confirmatory trials, a few questions remain. Such as is saffron as effective as methylphenidate, or is saffron as ineffective as methylphenidate? Still, interesting.

    desmanthus leptolobus

    Put the seeds in a ceramic cup and pour 60-80ml of boiling water on them. The next day plant any that swelled up and repeat the treatment on any that didnt. The ones that swell germinate very fast.
  4. Hunt around your area. My area is geologically boring but I've still located deposits where I can harvest two distinctly different kinds of sand, gravel, shell, red stone, I even found talc and limestone deposits. When a wind storm blew over an old tree by the river I found rocks the size of kiwis that I could crush into sand in my fist because of the decades of root exudates dissolving the stones support structure. Mineral substrates surround us in fair variety, once we learn to see them.

    Prickly Pear

    Yes. Different species might be more or less sour and lemony and you might even find some with crunchy calcium oxalate druses, but all are technically edible. And the reports of mescaline rich Opuntias are myths borne out of a quickly retracted typo, so you dont have to worry about turning the corner and being surprised by God ;)

    Isopropyl extractions

    If your cacti are of a species rich in hordenine and devoid of illegal things you could brew, concentrate, adjust pH to 9.75 (hordenine is both an acid and a base), saturate in salt, extract the hordenine freebase with isopropanol, and purify/convert from there. It could be fun, at least. Hordenine is used by the bodybuilder and nootropic types and the price seems to have been on the increase.

    Pesticide made from Nicotiana rustica

    Most nicotine is destroyed in combustion. Conversely its very bioavailable by skin absorption or drinking the stuff. Back when I grew it I would get anywhere from a very strong buzz to mild 'green tobacco sickness' just from handling the leaves and flowers of N. tabacum, N. rustica, or N. gossei and that was while I was a smoker. Two drops of pure nicotine or one cigar has enough nicotine to kill a non-smoker if taken orally. Its one of the poisons the body can build a tolerance to, though. You'll know if your being exposed to too much if it feels like you drank too much coffee, more exposure will result in increased restlessness, nervousness, as well as nausea. Thats as far as I ever got but things only get worse from there according to the literature. 'Green tobacco sickness' is the actual name of the illness caused by excessive skin exposure to tobacco plants, it happens a lot in growers and harvesters. It takes some minutes for the nicotine to fully soak in. If it feels like you drank coffee when you didnt, go wash with soap and stay away from the tobacco plants for a few hours.
