  1. I'm interested in your thoughts on this. Not looking for a discussion on whether or not eating meat at all is ethical, rather, if you do eat meat, where would you draw the line, and why. Livestock for consumption are generally cattle, pigs, sheep, chickens etc. Whenever we hear about eating animals like horse, we seem to have a reaction "this is taboo". Why? How did we decide that eating one animal is ok, but another is not ok? Is it because one tastes better? Or just that certain animals have been considered as "allies" - eg domesticated dogs, horses we ride etc. Second question: is is actually more ethical to eat a cow than a chicken? My logic here is that one cow might be able to feed, let's say 100 people, whereas a chicken might only feed 4. Therefore, you'd have to kill 25 chickens to feed the same number of people as one cow. Is a life of a chicken equivalent to a cow? I mostly eat vegetarian anyway, but I don't have a problem with eating meat per se. Just pondering...

    Perpetual life

    Sounds like you know what to do already. That means you're already ahead of the curve.

    The small green nodules you mention are vestigial leaves I think.

    It's an opuntia.
  5. Aren't they hemiparasitic? Might need to work out what sort of host they need to feed from as well to be successful. @Gimli any idea on this?

    Barnaby beetroot is a stupid pissed fool. I can't, for the life of me understand how this irrelevance keeps getting elected.
  7. Yes I do, I have experienced it. It was a very strange day, one of the best I've ever had. There was acid involved and I know lot of people will roll their eyes at that but hey. For about an hour, my best mate and I were in this state where he would be talking but they were my thoughts coming out of his mouth and vice versa. We were having shared visions. I also saw an eagle flying so high it was nearly invisible, then when it dived for a fish in the river, I saw everything through that eagles eyes. It was absolutely amazing.

  9. I'll donate mine to the next 2 posters. So in other words, the next 2 posters get 75 seeds each if that's ok with teamwhy? Let me know if not and I'll edit this post.

    eBay/Gumtree finds

    Not neggin on our brother, just musing on the comedic goings on everytime there is a hype clone that everyone decides they must have. I'm all for our man selling for whatever the punters are willing to pay. It's just funny how much people froth over a clone because of its supposed qualities that I guarantee nobody has officially verified. To me, Ogun looks much like a lot of other plants. I can almost understand when it comes to csd, which is quite unique looking. And @Halcyon Daze who cares when Zeus looks that sexy!

    Oz cash ban

    The real black economy is the movement of money to offshore tax havens. Panama papers, anyone?

    The funny part is it's all about that famous test, but the test is lacking a lot of critical information that might justify the prices "ogun" is selling for now. I guarantee you there are plenty of other plants that would give it a run for it's money in "that" regard. I seriously doubt anyone who spent a couple of hunge on a small cut will be testing it for a loooooong time!

    Have you used Tobacco Spray for pests?

    Spider mites will not be phased by tobacco pesticide most likely. Get some wettable sulfur onto them.

    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.
  18. 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.
  20. 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.

    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.
