    Going it alone

    This may be terrible advice but I say dive in. It's not easy, but it's not meant to be. A truly alone experience is more valuable for self exploration, there's no escape from confronting yourself, however badly you'll want it at times. You need to be reasonably confident of your dosages though. Undershooting your desired level isn't such a problem. Finding yourself waaay out of your psychic depth is likely to be counterproductive if self work is what you want to do. I find the lower levels are much more conducive. Expect weirdness, time dilation is often extreme for me when there's nobody to talk to. Make sure someone knows where you've gone and when you should be back. A fire for company at night is the best friend you'll have on this voyage.

    [in]soluble fertilizer blues

    Urea is very water soluble, doubt that's the issue. Regarding chloride salts, I would think that's something you'd want to avoid for plants.
  6. Bro, I love your vision. Also, I wouldn't worry too much about the longi hybrids diluting the genes, ime, they add a fantastic quality. Trust me!

    Quotes of the day.

    We have found a strange foot-print on the shores of the unknown. We have devised profound theories, one after another, to account for its origin. At last, we have suc- ceeded in reconstructing the creature that made the foot- print. And, lo! It is our own.
  8. Acacia Alkaloid profiles tend to be best in hot dry weather ime. Long periods of wet weather and also flowering may reduce some of the desired alkaloids. In saying this, I don't really have any experience with floribunda. The above holds true for obtusifolia and longifolia. But if you already have prunings you've got nothing to lose but time. It's all a learning experience.

    Creating an Outdoor Patch for Woodlovers or Subs

    You'd want to let some go to spore or water in a good lot of spores yearly to constantly renew it as insurance.

    2015 Australian Perpetual Free Trade Thread

    Ak, this offer still standing? If not I'll take whatevs. I'll put up two large Psychotria alba plants, currently in ground, I'll dig up when ready. Catch is: this is a pickup only from southern edge of Sydney. Come and say hello....

    Making sense of HBWR

    I've tried dosing two smashed seeds held under my tongue on two occasions, nothing. Could have been dud seeds, in fact quite likely. I tried to extract 70 seeds and got nothing either.

    "Shamanic Science" subforum drafts.

    By the way, I love this thread. Let's put the shaman back into shaman-australis. I'll be posting my solstice activities here soon.

    "Shamanic Science" subforum drafts.

    Shamanism is a method of exploring consciousness, which is multidimensional. Reductive science can explain and interpret "reality" up to a fourth dimension, but even then it struggles. Viewing from a dimension you are enmeshed in poses problems as you can't take an outside or overall view. Shamanism is the exploration of dimensions higher than the fourth, which must be internal. The apparent law is that each successive dimension is perpendicular to the previous. Our language fails at describing these experiences as it is part of the physical dimensions. I'm not sure there is a way around this problem.
  15. I try not to live in fear, but I also like to keep a low profile.

    Introducing: "SAINT PAUL"

    You forgot the part where noobie made one of the guests a soothing cup of tea after the guest fell out of his chair, having been bewitched by three toots of a magical steamwhistle! That cup renewed his spirits majestically!
  17. Horus, I don't share your optimism when I envisage this scenario unfortunately. Did Dr Andrew Katelaris get a fair hearing?
  18. Torsten has pointed out many times that it is unlikely to make a difference what state of preparation a substance is in for the purpose of prosecution. If the law thinks your intent is consumption, it's much of a muchness. Probably easier to prove a case with dried chips, but who'd want to test the water?
  19. Never underestimate the power of knee jerk reaction public outrage.. And if statistics matter so much to the police, why are statistically safe substances like cannabis illegal while statistically unsafe ones like alcohol remain legal?
  20. Yep. Last thing we need is some current affair type making a big outrage story from this king of thing. Facebook is already starting to disallow sales of plants with certain words in the listings and PayPal has refused payments to be processed too.

    any active salvias besides sally d

    Smoking half a leaf of divinorum is unlikely to produce effects either, yet it is most definitely active. The first time I tried divinorum it was very underwhelming. Perhaps there are compounds in other salvias that are much less heat stable, maybe even orally active.

    looking for sub prints (for microscopy purposes)

    I'll try to get a bunch of prints for you all, if I can beat the snails and slugs...
