    Does someone legally have to have an identity?

    I was fascinated by this awhile ago after watching some videos of "soverign citizens" in the US on YouTube, my resserch led me to the conclusion that it was possible there (legally) but basically unachievable within the australian legal framework. There is a movement though and some aussies giving it a go, good luck!

    Noob's cacti

    I've heard many are, not sure about 80% There are test strips avaliable for tmv (again fb trichocereus disease and virology) Diatamaceous earth kills bugs and is fully organic Pyretherum is another one to look at Sounds like the tomatoes could be the source if the infected plants have come from all over Skim milk is the best antiviral/sterelizer for tmv Soil and tools should be treated (again more info on fb) Tmv is ravaging the states atm but is alot less common here, please consider this before trading your plants!

    As far as I'm aware its safe, possibly due to the boiling process or maybe its that plant viruses can't affect humans? Defiantly do your research because I'm not informed on the subject

    Theres some info on the group i mentioned about skim milk neutralizing the virus on exterior and in the soil, if you were to keep her you may run the risk of insects transmitting the disease, some however are keeping infected plants and rehabilitating them. Theres debate as to whether many cactus are carriers of the dormant virus and whether nutrient play a part in its activation.

    The circles and rings are telltale viral, often due to nutrient defficencies but not always. Could look into tmv (tobacco mosaic virus/tombavirus) pm me for a facebook group with tons of info if your keen to learn more

    I've heard there very hard to grow from seed and have tried with no success. I have also read about the little suckers from the base but have been unable to find one. I'm going to take @Ethnoob up on his offer and try again from seed, could you reccomend a tek? Thanks guys! Love this community and its generosity, excited to give some back when an opportunity presents!

    Catha edulis sob story

    Recently acquired a few cuttings from a guy on facebook, he didn't get to the post office in time so refrigerated the cuts over the weekend. When I received the cuts on wednesday i did my best to root them but all 6 failed ($60) I contacted him and his solution was that I could but a rooted plant off him for the reduced cost of $80 which seemed steep but I am really keen to grow this plant so I agreed. Received the plant today and it had snapped in two places during transit. He basically chucked it in a bag and sent it unprotected. I'm feeling pretty down about it all but I realised that someone on here may be able to help find this rare plant, are there any collectors out there who would be willing to help a brother out with a new plant? Am happy to pay and cover shipping, or trade! Thanks!

    Olivetol group buy

    Department of home affairs response was "I can't see it being an issue but you should contact a customs broker" customs themselves have no way to be contacted. It sucks trying to abide by legislation that is so ambiguous you can never be sure of anything
