    A couple of Acacia IDs

    Thanks for letting me know! I just assumed it wouldn't be that difficult, so you've saved me a lot of time, and of course, removing plant material in the future. Still curious about the IDs of those acacias so I can better familiarise myself with them.

    A couple of Acacia IDs

    Thank you for the reminder, it's been a long whie since I've been searching for acacias, I just didn't think. And to be completely clear, I am not planning on harvesting from wild trees, I may however take cuttings for propagation, but I'm hoping to learn more about IDing as I go. Mate that is very useful to know, thanks for passing that on. Such a quick and easy thing to look for. Acacia Floribunda definitely has cylindrical flowering patterns (spikes), which are present on Sample 1 and 2. I have also heard that supposedly there are different floribunda varieties, some of which yield DMT, some do not.
  3. Hi there, I've long been on the hunt for alkaloid producing acacias in my area (SE Melbourne), particularly something that could be sustainably harvested, i.e. from phyllodes. So I've got a few samples I'd love IDs on please (sorry for pic orientation - not sure how to correct this) Sample 1: 19/06/2020 - I think this is a Floribunda but would love confirmation. Sample 2: 21/06/2020 - Pretty sure this is also Floribunda Sample 3: 21/06/2020 - This one looks quite different, note the quite pronounced reddish colour of the stems Sample 4: 21/06/2020 - Also quite different, the branches seemed to be quite elongated and droop down towards the ground; phyllodes protrude perpendicular to the stem
  4. Close enough for me, thanks
  5. Cool I'll look into that, thank you
  6. Hi Shamans, just hoping to get an ID on this plant. I saw it in an office and just love the petiteness of it. Any help would be most appreciated. Thanks P.S. Dunno why it's rotated like that, sorry.
  7. Thanks Moose and Glaukus for your insights, you have confirmed what I have read about Acacias more generally. Time unfortunately isn't something I have an abundance of, but I'll gather up a small quantity of trimmings anyway and hopefully get around to working with them at some stage.
  8. Hey shamans. Someone I know has recently pruned their Acacia Floribunda, leaving quite a decent sized stack of branches full of phyllodes. I'm wondering with the very heavy rain recently, the phyllodes would currently contain active ingredients? The reason I'm asking is based on my very limited knowledge, that alkaloid content dramatically decreases following periods of rain and colder weather temperatures. Can anyone confirm this? Thanks

    Nice, that looks like a very close match to me. Thank you

    Acacia ID Help

    Any ideas at all?
  11. Could anyone please help ID this acacia? I thought I was dealing with a Floribunda, but it looks slightly different. It has similar sized phyllodes but this species has a rounded tip, as opposed to a pointy tip that Floribunda has. It also appears to have very small glands, which I'm tlkd Floribundas do not have. I've done a Google image search but didn't have any luck. The closest match I found was A. Fimbriata, but it's not exact, and from what I read, Fimbriata grows up North. Located in a creekland in the Eastern suburbs of Melb. Thanks.
  12. Thats awesome, very cool info. And how are you finding subs this early in the year, with such high temps and low rainfall?
  13. The fruit being the fleshy pink ring around the seed?
  14. Hi there, Just went out for a walk and snapped a few pics of acacias. These are grouped into three separate samples. I suspect they are either A. Longifolia or A. Melanoxylon. Locatio: Eastern Melbourne creeklands. Thanks P.S Sorry for the sideways photos, not sure how to fix that. Sample 1: Sample 2: Sample 3:
  15. Wow, this tree just keeps on getting better. I just went for my morning dog walk through some creeklands and ID'd quite a number of very young Floribundas, including one that had been damaged somehow, so I might head back there and scavenge whatever I can. Also a couple of other species that I photographed (See this thread) Good to know
