    Edible/Medicinal culture seeking thread

    I'd be keen on some Lions mane for my brother if you'd part with one?

    has anyone used Coconut Water for cacti?

    If you want pupping, just lay on the N. Urea is guaranteed to do this biz.
  3. Very glad to hear it's all on the way to being sorted. And I hope you're ok Kindness.

    Seeking a couple of native plant seeds

    @Xperiment, I got u covered for obtusifolia seeds. Send me a pm.
  5. Yeah, this type of trading is not acceptable IMHO. If payment is made, then goods should be sent, on time, unless communicated clearly and agreed. There needs to be trust and assurance in the trading system or else it all falls apart. I hope this all turns out ok and that kindness is also ok.

    Help, diseased cacti :(

    Kelp/seaweed is a great source of wetting agents. As the carrageenan breaks down it allows the water to break the surface tension more easily. So you could probably try seasol, or do what I do and just mulch stuff with actual seaweed.

    smelling accacias

    I live amongst so many obtusifolia and courtii, I don't even need to smell them anymore. I just sit under them, and know they have love to share.

    Brugmansia microdosing

    4-6 datura metel seeds in a poppy tea brew aftere a few beers is pretty great. Just sayin.

    Glenelg river fishing.

    Mulloway are by nature a lazy fish. They like to sit out of currents where they can ambush prey. Drop offs and holes are excellent spots, where they can sit low and watch food pass by overhead. They will usually bite on the slack of the tide, top of the tide being best. Nights leading up to a full moon, but not on an actual full moon are good. Big sinker to keep your bait down, with a long running trace is a good rig. Plenty of fishing sites to check rigging tips. They will also take soft plastic lures - check what sort of bait fish are around and try to match something similar looking. Good luck. I've spent many cold lonely nights sitting out fishing for them up here.

    I know nasturtium flowers are edible, are the leaves also good? I have an abundance of them, they self sow every year.

    caapi care

    If I was you, I'd let them be until closer to spring. When you cut them back, they'll want to shoot again. If it's still cold and miserable, the tender young shoots will suffer a lot. Dieback is ok if the main sections are thick enough.. Wait until Spring has really hit then cut back to the woody sections. I wouldn't cut right back to ground level, just back to a decent woody knuckle.

    Could be, that's the issue with common names I guess. Always knew it as chickweed.

    Chickweed is also good for getting rid of warts and blemishes. When I was a kid, my mum would drop some of the milky sap onto a wart every day for a few weeks and they'd disappear, never to return.

    Quotes of the day.

    It holds us like a phantom The touch is like a breeze It shines its understanding See the moon smiling Open on all channels Ready to receive And we're not at the mercy Of your shimmers or spells Your shimmers or spells We are of the earth To her we do return The future is inside us It's not somewhere else It's not somewhere else It's not somewhere else One day at a time We call upon the people People have this power The numbers don't decide Your system is a lie The river running dry The wings of a butterfly And you may pour us away like soup Like we're pretty broken flowers We'll take back what is ours Take back what is ours One day at a time Radiohead- The numbers

    Brugmansia microdosing

    Going back a few years I ate 1-2 seeds daily for a few days and after a few days started to feel like I was getting the typical tropane effects, dry mouth, bad memory, general weirdness. I stopped at that point as I didn't want to be talking to shadow people at work!

    What is this and how do I treat it?

    Motherfirefly knows what's up.

    What is this and how do I treat it?

    Looks like two obvious issues: scale and fungal infection, maybe phytopthera. Treat the scale by brushing them off with a toothbrush, you can use a little isopropyl alcohol/water mixture with a drop of detergent if you like too. For the fungal issue, I'd get something like Yates anti rot -its a systemic fungicide using phosphorus acid so it's quite safe. As for the ID, I'd be leaning towards a cuzcoensis but would need a better pic of the base of the central spines. Cuzcoensis has a distinctive flared base of the central spines.

    CBD oil?

    F me. It ain't cheap is it...
  21. Glaukus


    I think any smoke is probably harmful if you're breathing enough of it regularly. Wood fires for cooking are a major source of cancers in the world where they are common. I mostly use an essential oil burner for indoors if the doors and windows are closed. It's great because you can really tailor a blend of EOs to your mood at the time, and there's no smoky residue left on walls or ceilings. I'm a big fan of cedarwood and rosemary oil as a blend. Also I love lemon oil for an uplifting mood bump. Having a hot bath with essential oils is so good.

    Sandalwood is one of my favourite incenses. Myrrh and frankincense also. I find lemongrass very uplifting.

    Also, the tender young shoots are much easier to chew than woody old branches.
