    eBay/Gumtree finds

    Research better, it doesn't get much more legit than that considering Sam is the one who grew out the original CSD from seed and named & spread the clone.

    #2 is possibly Pachycereus marginatus, and #3 I'd say a Pilosocereus seedling, hard to say for sure at that size.

    phyllodium pulchellum seeds :)

    I have seen a few pictures online that look similar, could be another species of Desmodium maybe. I know someone else who's a vendor and has stocked what was sold to him as P. pulchellum, I'll ask him some pics. Chamomile tea is an option for antifungal treatment, both soaking the seeds in it and watering with it. I might try that. Still no signs of germination here either on the 5 I sowed for my first try.

    Damn, that's interesting, yours look different from both mine and the ones from the shroomery. Here's the pic that was posted (not the best admittedly): I'm definitely confident in Julian's ID, that's why I'm confused about the others. Only one way to know though, grow them out! If you look closely in this picture from his talk you can discern some greenish pods that do seem to look like the seeds I have. On the right of the pic coming out of the round parts that look opened:

    Can you guys please post pics of your seeds and specify whether or not you got them from Julian? Someone on the shroomery bought seeds and they look different. Here are mine, from Julian:

    Desmodium pulchellum is one of the former names of Phyllodium pulchellum I believe. Here are the synonyms listed on wikipedia: Desmodium pulchellum (L.) Benth. Hedysarum pulchellum L. (basionym) Meibomia pulchella (L.) Apparently they sowed straight to soil, after treating the seeds with fungicide.

    There is a published paper on Phyllodium pulchellum germination here: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/237019129_Seed_germination_of_two_medicinal_plants_Desmodium_Pulchellum_L_Benth_and_D_Triflorum_L_DC Pretty promising, they got sprouts in 4 days apparently.

    Nice thanks, that's what I was planning to try. I put 5 seeds to soak overnight at the moment, will sow them tomorrow. Any sprouts yet?

    Chupa Cabrerana

    An online friend recently went to the Peruvian Amazon and brought back seeds of Banisteriopsis rusbyana, Banisteriopsis muricata and Alicia anisopetala. He sent me a few of each, so far only the B. rusbyana have sprouted. All the info I can find points to B. rusbyana being synonymous with D. cabrerana. I asked him about that and this is what he said: "I believe the original botanical description of diplo cab fits the rusbayana. I know folks in Peru and Brazil that tell me they are different plants. It doesnt help that "chaliponga" can mean many different plants depending on where you are. Check out my post on sept 18th on the Mallachts page, I have photos of the plants in question. Welcome to the 'diploponga' confusion!" Here is a picture of the exact plant the seeds I have were harvested from: And pics from the same trip of a plant he identified as D. cabrerana but didn't bare seeds at the time: Picture of the B. rusbyana seeds & compared to B. caapi var. caupuri seeds: And my seedlings so far, one striking difference is that those have very meaty cotyledons, whereas I don't remember ever seeing cotyledons on caapi.
