    Is this diseased?

    Look, it might survive. I was probably being overly pessimistic. Ive killed many variegates, some through lack of care, some through no fault of my own. I have found that once they show the symptoms, the disease is usually well established in the tissue and no matter how hard I cut, it reappears.

    Can't load forum pages beyond page 1

    I don't get a page option on my phone. I'd switch it to the browser view instead of mobile view but I can't remember how to haha.

    Is this diseased?

    I hate to be a downer but variegates like this are doomed once they show this infection. You might stave it off for a while, but it's prolonging the inevitable in my experience.
  4. Hi gurus, Having issues on my phone (android). I can't navigate beyond page 1 on any of the forums. Clicking next page or even last page just takes me back to the top of page 1. Also searches don't do anything. Not even a page refresh when I hit search. I've tried logging out and back in. Tried two different mobile browsers. No change. Any idea what's causing this issue?

    Chasing some Bridgesii Eileen cuttings

    I can help you out if you don't get any offers.
  6. I should add though, if I sell something at a price I think is too much, I feel guilty and usually add a lot of freebies as a softener. Loph seeds are also unpredictable. I used to pay in the vicinity of $0.20 per seed for locality williamsii. Now, slap a locality name on them and they're going for multiple dollars per seed. It's a seller's market.
  7. If I am cutting to order for someone, I'd usually charge $2-3 per cm for reasonably standard stuff. Anything rare or highly desirable, I let the auction market decide. Sometimes I put what I think is a ridiculous buy it now price on something to test the water and it gets snapped up in a flash. You never know. The appearance of a cut sometimes is far more of a driver than the genetics. An immaculate greenhouse grown cutting with no blemishes or fingerprints will get a better price than a bigger but rougher looking cut of the same plant.

    Youtube vids

    https://youtu.be/KBm-W6DC1f4 I was lucky enough to have seen Scratch, and had the honour of handing him a spliff onstage, which he pocketed with a wink then smoked with Mad Professor later.

    Caapi vine live

    I don't have any rooted up at the moment. I can get some going (might take a month or so) or I can send green cuts and you can root them yourself.

    M.speciosa seeds

    I just read that viability is low even for seeds straight off the tree, and decreases with each passing day. Some sources say anything more than 2 weeks old are unviable. Will give it a go regardless. Thanks for the seeds.

    Harvest Ethics

    I can see courtii is a possibility to hybridise with obtusifolia in my yard, they are flowering at the same time in close proximity. Courtii trees are podding up at the early stage now, really hoping for viable seeds this year. I grew out around a hundred tubes of obtuse from my local seed, sourced from the largest possible range of phenotypes I could collect. Only took a few pods from each, and I can say with a lot of certainty that any left are quickly eaten by sulfur crested cockatoos. I replanted more than 50 back into the same area, although more upslope. I kept 15 of varying types for my yard, and gave away the others. I like to think every little bit helps. I know opinions vary and the road to hell is paved with good intentions.

    Banisteriopsis caapi seeds wanted

    I think you're going to struggle to keep a caapi happy in Tasmania. Or even alive through a winter... If you have a large heated greenhouse you might.
