  1. 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?

    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.

    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.

    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.
  13. Sorry if this upsets anyone's sensibilities, but I've been thinking about this a lot in the last few days. We are all going to die at some point. We probably all have different views on what happens to us after death. I'm interested in the topic of pre-death rituals, and the treatment of our bodies in this thread mostly, but happy for it to be a more generalised place for people to post about anything related to the topic. Pretty much all religions of the world have some form of "last rites", and a proscription of what to do with the body. Mostly this involves burial or cremation. Personally, I don't think I want to be buried, I have various reasons for that. I think I'd like to be cremated and my ashes sent out on the waves. Maybe that's asking for trouble, the ocean is restless, in constant motion. Does that sound like eternal peace? I don't know. I do take solace from the ocean, it is always in my consciousness, I don't think I could live away from it. But what about pre-death? I guess if life is taken suddenly and without warning, there's not much you can do to prepare. What do you have in mind as your own "last rites"? This one might be the most important thing to put thought into. So many people end up in a hospital deathbed, and at that point, decision making is taken away from the dying. This is a tragedy. My father in law laid dying in hospital, and said he just wanted one last beer. Nobody took this request seriously, and I don't think I'll forgive myself for not running out and getting him one. I mean, FFS, what is the worst that could have happened? He was literally about to die. What happens to me if I shun the last rites of the religion I was raised in? A broken circle is never usually a good thing. But I don't want to be treated as one of the flock, I'm not a sheep. Do I need to renounce the religion beforehand to close that loop?

    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.

    Harvest Ethics

    Pastures and cattle are not natural environments in Australia, curious to hear how they could be competing with vulnerable species..
  18. Sharxx blue came from dawson's so technically both are correct!

    Unsure of some of this stash...

    They're all cubes. The lilac tinge you see are the spores. Older specimens released their spores and they are purple in colour.
