  1. This might seem a bit random, but I just want to say a big thanks to all the members here who have made me feel so welcome since I joined about a year ago. I was at a critical point when I joined up, been through some major crises since, and didn't really feel like I belonged anywhere, caught between worlds. People here have been so friendly, helpful and even though I've met very few of you face to face, I feel like I have made some very good friends. Random gush over...
  2. If you roast the seeds a lil bit they'll be fine to eat.

    wtb - super Pedro cutting

    Hey all, anyone got super Pedro or lance they can spare a cutting of? Preferably a tip cut, but beggars can't be choosers I guess.
  5. Yowie pups like a demon, and grows very fast too. I'm getting 10+cm a month on all columns at the moment.

    Chilli fruits rotting upon & before ripening

    Also be aware that full sun in the Australian summer is usually too hot for most Chinense varieties - they will do much better in part shade. I've had great plants in even full shade.

    Good Whiskey

    Laphroaig is up there, liquid peat smoke in a bottle. Shame I can't afford to drink that stuff anymore. Glendronach is pretty tasty too. For a good blended scotch, j&b is ok, as is ballantines.

    Mullien or Coltsfoot?

    Mullen grows wild on the roadside so you shouldn't have any trouble.growing it. You may need to keep it under control so it doesn't become a pest.

    Sounds like too much water

    Coffee in the Adelaide Hills

    That's a hard won cup.
  13. I say let's get genetic engineering involved, create some kind of bacteria that creates calories from sunlight that can be absorbed directly through the skin. No actually, on second thought, I like hot chips way too much. But I will put my hand up for some grizzly bear DNA splicing, I could do with 6 months of hibernation...I'm tired.

    sorted thank you all

    I'm about to propagate some "mystic spires" if you send me yr address I can send some when they're rooted.
  15. Sorry if this has been discussed already, but there seems to be a very large number of bridges that are singular enough in appearance and form to be named. In contrast, there seems to be very few pachanoi and peruvianus named clones. Is bridgesii naturally more variable in form than the others? And if so, why? Do you think there has been a larger number of specimens distributed that were grown from seed whereas pachanoi has been spread more through vegetative propagation? Or maybe pachanoi and the like have more of a history of human selection and breeding therefore are more stable in form? Or maybe we just have a habit of whacking on a name for any bridge that looks slightly different? It puzzles me that the terscheckii complex also seems quite variable in form yet we don't give them pet names like bridgesii. What are your thoughts?

    Named Bridgesii clones vs other trichs

    Wow, zebra is a beauty!

    Named Bridgesii clones vs other trichs

    I know it's a quagmire when we start the name game, I've read so much discussion of "is it a short spine peruvianus or a pachanoi, is is a macrogonus or a peruvianus, is it a peruvianus or a cuzcoensis..." Maybe I'm completely off track and bridgesii is actually more consistent in form, so much so that we only append cultivar names instead of new species?

    Psilocybin Mushrooms of SE QLD, Australia

    I came down from one of the gc hinterland mountains yesterday after a lot of rain and saw some really good looking patches of both pans and cubes, unfortunately had my family in the car and couldn't stop...

    erythrina vespertilio

    Try the trading thread, should be someone who can help you with the seeds you're after.
  20. Glaukus

    Score!! I'd help please

    Bottom photo, the two either side of the Pilosocereus look a bit like cuzcoensis maybe?
  21. My recent loph graft seems to be surviving after a week or so, and I was feeling lucky so I decided to attempt a peres graft of a roseii #1 seedling with a very pale complexion. Hoping for some variegation...
  22. Chips and cardboard are colonising nicely after a week. Everything's looking good! It's a healthy strain, very rhizomorphic growth. A powerful ally.
  23. Howdy mycophiles and mycophages, Thanks to a very generous friend I have come into possession of a bucket of colonised woodchips, and I'd like to propagate this spawn to more buckets before I kick off my outdoor patch. I've read that summertime temps (eg 30ish degrees c) are fine for colonisation as far as subs go, but does anyone have an opinion as to whether they might be happier if a little cooler? I have them mixed up in layers in a tub with uncolonised chips and damp cardboard, then bagged and stored in my garden shed. I might be able to keep them 5 or more degrees cooler if they are kept under the house in the middle of the day but I have mo experience as to whether the mycelium will run better when warmer or cooler. As far as my intended patch, it's in perpetual shade, but I don't know whether to dig out the grass first before spreading the chips into beds or if there is any advantage in leaving some grass. I've read that there may be beneficial relationships with grasses when fruiting. Again, any advice from the experienced would be greatly appreciated.
  24. Ghosts of the civil dead. If you haven't seen it, it's a classic prison movie, nick cave makes a pretty disturbing cameo.
