    "Longifolia group" and DMT

    This thread is almost 13 years old, so the members may not be around to answer your question. From personal experience though the best time is when the plant is most stressed, this goes with all DMT containing plants. End of the hottest, driest period at the end of a hot day is prime. Daytime harvesting always yields less than early morning or late afternoon, cool and wet weather harvesting yields significantly less than hot and dry. Here in FNQ the best window is usually after the heat ramps up but before the wet actually hits. Sometime in November.

    Wanted: Passiflora Incarnata

    I got one on the way from another member od101010. If it doesn't work out I'll hit you up mate. You should definitely propagate them anyway, would definitely sell on eBay even if you don't have a use for them. The more going around Aus the better.

    What TV series would you recommend as a much watch?

    Yeah it's a mad series. I fk'n despise superhero nonsense, hide outside when the fam watches the latest one, so this series rubs me the right way.

    Wanted: Passiflora Incarnata

    One hell of an overlooked plant hey. I reckon the MAOI properties are much higher in incarnata though.

    Thanks nothinghead, I've got edulis, specifically chasing incarnata for it's other medicinal properties.

    Still looking for a live cut of this plant. Can trade all sorts of things or even cold hard cash if needed.

    Acacia courtii giveaway

    I'll post some acacias I've grown, thanks to brothernature for seedlings. Maidennii, confusa and floribunda.

    Mandatory Vacinations, no jab no play

    Easy to make any law if many people agree, much harder to enforce it if many more don't. Not having a bill or rights has meant little to us as we have a representative democracy. That means it's much harder to sell our healthcare, education, etc and that our leader doesn't have veto power to push unpopular/unethical rules to law. I was shocked when I learned that there's no Australian bill of rights and the Constitution is mostly legalese to say who gets to make the rules in Australia. After reading further into the topic though I see the unique position we're in. Even if a bill of rights was introduced it would not reflect a 400 year old US bill, it would mostly be the stuff that is already granted to us by the bill of human rights, which Australia is pretty damn good at following. There's not a huge incentive, except for the proliferation of lawyers, if you research it and think about it. It's only USification that makes it mean anything. Media frenzied patriotic hogwash.

    Mandatory Vacinations, no jab no play

    Well we live with the direct legacy of not having to deal with rabies nor anthrax because of Pasteur. Sure killing every single fly, bat and dog on earth would have been more practical, but hey science is just this crazy wild experiment that ignores all evidence and just does what it will. Live attenuated vaccines including those for diphtheria, plague, tuberculosis, yellow fever, rotavirus, measles, mumps, rubella, and more are based on Pasteur's research. The hundreds of millions of people who haven't died nor been crippled by those previously endemic diseases refute any last minute doubts the old boy had before he fell off the perch. In fact the only reason many of these diseases aren't extinct now and we don't need to vaccinate for them at all is because some people for whatever reason refuse treatment. Previously the primary poor reasoning was religion, but commonly it's just naive and ego-central echo chambers now. 300 million people died from smallpox last century, now it's extinct because of effective vaccine strategy and none of us vaccinate against it any longer. Spot the conspiracy. I'm not going to be quick to shoot myself with the latest batch of corona-vaccine, if it ever arrives. Probably spend some time mulling over ridiculous antivax armchair biology for a while, wait to see if it is really effective, then do it.

    The reason people here take it so blindly here is we've got it so good. If there was significant hardship civil unrest would develop and it would be much harder to pull off. Not that it wouldn't still happen though, look at the US. For all the screaming about rights and stuff in the US it turns out they really get shafted at every turn. Straight up bribery in the form of "lobbying" holds the whole country in thrall, but at least they can shoot each other with guns and stuff, get the longest prison sentences in the 1st world with the worst incarceration rates. Ya know, because that's what free people do. But they laugh at us while crying constantly over their corrupt medical, corrupt schooling, corrupt policing, corrupt politics, corrupt infrastructure... ironic really. Sure Australia is overreacting to some extent with the policing of covid, but we do that with everything. It's going to take a generational change to phase out these sort of laws before they become truly Draconian. I think it's important to maintain perspective before engaging outrage. Better trade with Europe is the key to our emancipation from the war shackles of the US and the financial shackles of China. The party that gets this right will lead the emancipation of our young nation. I'm unsure how to wean people people off the corporate duopoly that is our political system, but more and more people are becoming aware of it especially the younger generations. As the old voting base dies off new ideas will come the fore. I smell the winds of change, the calm before the storm if you will. Rational people don't see the advantage of oppressing people in a wealthy nation. Oppressed people are not as productive and you can't tax them as much. Bad business really. I'm sure pollies with their personal businesses taking it to the knees can't wait for this whole thing to be over. They want people to spend, spend, spend.

    Day 5 cobweb mould :(

    It looks like some sort of slime mould. It doesn't appear to be spread everywhere, hopefully just isolated to that area you photographed up close. Putting salt on moulds can stunt them and give the myc a chance to outcompete them. It looks a lot better seeing the whole tub rather than seeing just that one small section.

    Day 5 cobweb mould :(

    Nah man. It's fucked. You can grow it out anyway if you like, but it's not a winner. Might get a small flush. You could make an outside patch with the spawn. The cube will win the fight out there in a semi shaded position if you're warm enough. Might still be a bit wintery at the moment. Bury it 10-15cm thick with a 1cm casing sprinkled with grass seed if you have it. Cover it in plastic for a couple of weeks, uncover and water lightly. Will fruit 2 weeks later.

    Day 5 cobweb mould :(

    It may not be cobweb, but it's not healthy mycelium either. Some sort of nasty.

    Probably closer to the US methinks. https://ibb.co/CHh4sMj

    The test of how this disease interacts with people will be the crowded places with little infrastructure or medical facilities. It is going to rip through India, Brazil, South Africa and similar countries. It's been slower to set in because not so many people are flying around in planes all the time. But there's ghetto cities in these places that have no sanitation or established medical system that have a million people crowded into 5 square kilometres. When we see what happens to them the worst will be known. They are really the petri dishes for the rest of us and maybe even our best hope of finding a cure. I watched an interesting vlog the other day by this Russian guy who went and filmed in Wuhan and Shanghai. The streets are locked down, seriously. They are not messing around at all. No doubt have every hacker trying to steal everyone else's data and every researcher creating their own to try to find the golden egg, a cure or vaccine. It's potentially the most valuable single piece of undiscovered intellectual property, that doesn't yet exist, that ever existed.
