    Mosiac virus (TMV) Awareness, solutions.

    I think the panic and paranoia is totally understandable and reasonable considering entire collections are possibly at risk and years of nurturing and care put into gardens only for someone un-educated, unaware or just completely ignorant of the virus to spread it and do irreversible damage to peoples sacred gardens. Hell i know people with it in their gardens who choose to leave it there and continue to sell to others while these infected cacti are in the same and close proximity. One person and i quote said" this cactus can make me a lot of money, i'm not getting rid of it". I also saw the virus in a cacti nursery not to far from where i live, 20mins away, who has had trade relations with the person i just quoted...coincidence? In total i know of 3 large collections just in my local area that have it present, two of which don't seem to care and continue to sell, the nursery im not sure if they are aware of it. I think ignorance and profit/greed based at that is one of the most atrocious attitudes towards the cacti and ethnobotanical community, choosing to turn the other cheek at the potential risk of infecting and destroying peoples beloved collections and gardens. If they are aware they have the virus and not taking measures to contain it. People with it in their gardens that sell definitely aren't going to state so unfortunately dude, because that means they might lose $$$ and that's top priority for those types of people, they dont care about your garden. I was given specimens with the virus a few years ago and its constantly now in the back of my mind in regards to my garden. The best approach i could offer you Messiah is to just separate like you have done and monitor and be bloody careful who you source from and any tools and utensils you use, get into a good habit of sterilizing and keeping clean knives etc. Here are some of the pics i've had that were given to me and shrugged of as nothing to worry about when i had no idea about the risks of the virus. When this is the possible potential, i think most people will panic if they see signs of it. From what i've seen this doesn't look like sunburn, i've had severe sunburn, nor cold, nor insect, pretty certain i've got an eye for TMV now especially seeing it in peoples gardens progress.

    Feeling slightly stoned after smoking mopacho

    If you want to gain the favor of the spirit and its blessings then you follow the guidelines of those who have walked before us and gained the favor of the spirit. If you wanna use it for recreational use and hedonistic use and disregard that then well....that is the relationship your choosing to create. Personally ill trust the natives that learned to make Aya in their f'n dreams out of all the plants available to them, from respecting Mapacho and the plants, listening and revering them. Anyone who wants to disregard that feat of interaction with spirit well be my guest. But hey..If you think its right... lol

    Feeling slightly stoned after smoking mopacho

    If you had sat with the natives and worked with mothera and rahpe' together made and used by them in the correct manner and the use of mapacho in the respectful way then you wouldn't even question it you would simply be humbled. And id say you would have a reverence for it enough so to not misuse it for getting high. But go ahead, enlighten us on which cultural uses are more predominant and effective than the amazonian tribes and have the same healing, expanding and cleansing potentials?

    Feeling slightly stoned after smoking mopacho

    If your going to all that effort you may aswell just buy some Rahpe' and a Kuripe at the same time and support the natives like the Katukina and the Yawanawa and get some sacred medicine thats been done in the correct way and prepared in a traditional manner. You will never make Rahpe' anywhere close to how they're doing it, not with bi carb and Mapacho lol its almost disrespectful, not even with Parika ash and Mapacho, its just not the same.... Inhaling Mapacho is warned agaisnt, Rahpe' is a purgative your not meant to swallow it. Its sacred. Smoking it for fun is like doin aya for fun....if thats your thing then cool whatever but you should ask yourself if you think its right. Get it from the people who have the strongest relationship with it and you will understand. Its like comparing Daime aya to just some basic brew you have whipped up.... theres not much comparison. Just my two cents anyways. Shouldn't half ass it when it comes to spirit lol. Commit.

    Not so happy loph - Advice please.

    Thanks EG yeah I thought the same, i'm actually amazed its gotten as far as it has in that soil. Do you think bare rooting would be the best step to take while they source a mineral base? or just leave it without any watering until they are ready to re-pot? Thanks man. I've got a few seed grown in scoria and sand/pebbles but they're alot smaller, i've never dealt with anything of this size. Cheers.
  6. Posting for a friend here, this is their loph family that's looking a bit depressed, at first glance I thought the soil looks all wrong, suffocating and not very aerated, but I said to them id ask here before re-potting to get the best advice and approach for a remedy as they don't want to make the wrong decision. I haven't seen it in person. yet. To get a better look, maybe this week. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys.

    Where do people sell second hand vape gear in Australia?

    I have and used the same unit for years, its decent rig with good temp control ranges along with being all glass except the bag and whip and you can make some pretty good oil from the decarbed material too. Great bang for buck.
