    unknown smelly

    I use to hear people call it croften or crofft weed when i was kid on the north coast. Dont let live stock eat it cause im pretty sure it fucks up cattles respiratory systems and kills them easily and it makes horses go pisss poor in condition. Im not 100% but it definitely looks close

    bird watching stories nature observations

    I gets lots of birds out were i am...think i even got scub turkeys the furtherest inland. The red taild black cockatoos are my favorites but you get some species of birds out hear that are either a long way from the tropical rain forests of the coast or an unknown inland sub species A couple of months back i had visit from a cat bird (never seen one before an they normally live on tbe coast) anyways i was sitting there minding my own business and herd a couple of cat meows (i dont have a cat an very much dislike the murderous hypoallergenic sods) so i thought i better have a look. Im looking hear and there and under things whilst hearing more meows close by (sounded like it was in a 10m radius of me) i couldnt see a cat anywhere i could hear it there was nowhere it coukd of been hiding...i was starting to think i lost my marbles, after another hour of searching and still hearing meows i was CONVINCED i had lost the plot and SERIOUSLY thinking about getting in touch with mental health to come get me when this fucking funny little green bird lands on the fence in front of me looks me dead in the eye and lets out a loud MEOW which didn't help the situation much

    Definitely sad he isnt taken very seriously, his studies definitely help me out a fair bit, just in understanding my personality (INFJ). Turns out i fall into the rarest trates to have. I belong to small group of like minded people. Spent years of my life trying to work out if i was slightly nuts or if the world is entirely fucking bonkers ....turns out the world is just fucking bonkers lol.

    Lol yeah no worries Nice to see others familiar with some of carls work, i didnt know about his work on anxitety disorders tho but must say he hit the personality groups right on the head. Its a pretty full on movie. Seen it a couple of times
  12. Hi every one Hopefully some b cappie will fall across my path soon, possibly some is already on its way Anyways when the times comes iv got some unfavorable conditions I get long hot summers (bullshit hot at times hit 53 degrees C a couple of summers ago) and the sun can strip the skin of a rhinos arse in my location at mid day. Then i get cold dry winters some times as low -5 or lower. Growing in the ground is not an option due to moisture seeking militaristic termites and other nasty little ground dwelling beasties with big teeth and my soil type isn't compatible for rainforest vines So i just wanna run my thoughts past some more experienced green thumbs just to be sure im on the right track. To beat the climate im thinking indoors, somewhere it can get a bit light under a window or something, which means a pot. Automaticly a plus to beat the beasties....thinking im gonna need a big one, guess 80L+. After watching a couple of doccos i seen they like to grow near creeks and rivers so i persume the water table wouldn't be far down. So to replicate this im guessing a deepish (10-15cm) saucer/tray to sit the pot in to fill with water....thinking im gonna need a moisture wicking but well drain airy median rich in organic matter, maybe a coco coir mixed with compost, pumice, vermiculite ect to keep the weight down Maybe a section of mesh i can train it I did try searching the forum for info but b cappi is mentioned everywhere lol. Thanks in advance for any advice, info, ideas or critique

    Im sorry to hear about marriage. I hope things improve for you both..i doubt it was either of your faults, it more so reflects on a insecure society if you look at the bigger picture. ..not happing to just you. I feel things like anxiety, depression ext are primitive survival functions if you get me. Back in cave man days if you were feeling depressed it was probably due to poor conditions no food ect it was motivation to change the situation,same with anxiety back in neanderthal days it probably due to a dangerous unstable environment it was motivation to get the fuck out of there. Now days we get locked into life situations the fears that trigger these feelings have change were now in a position were you cant escape The reason behind my original question was to try understand what gose on in proples minds, ill try to explain it better. Sometimes i cross paths with people, seems like they got there shit together job house car kids ect but they dont know why they feel miserable. I explain to them the bigger picture on whats going on how essentialy there slaves to system there not free, there basically caught up in the lie that this road to happyness. Then i get hit with with irrational anger. Wich in turn makes me feel why bother trying to explain it to them, to me knowing sad truths opens choices on if you wanna play that game or walk that path or go naaa fuck that i dont want any part of that an then walk your direction. Im not out to ruin people's lifes but fuck if they ask me my thoughts im gonna tell them. Im wanna give them choices not piss em off But i guess its part of the parcel

    Arte 7....it took me back somewhere to some point...remeniscing hazy long forgotten memories of unconnected random past rolling events that are lost in time...memorial ramblings .......on another note that bloke still owes me $30 lol

    Advice, b cappi, hot dry summers/cold winters, growing in pots

    Thanks man much appreciated Ill ahh give that new spelling ago lol...admittedly i gotta pick up my spelling and grammar game. I blame the auto correct/predictive text function on phones. Its made me sloppy Think i got the perfect spot for it in my humble tin shack lol, morning sun a decent space to spred a couple meters either side. Figured i could stretch out a peice of mesh to train it back an forth then cut it back when its to big and let it grow back again...options for water is dam water when they fill again(if it ever decides to rain again, seriously those in flood affected QLD could line up with buckets and start shifting it into inland NSW would be great) or rain water, but currently been having to cart water from town... Size limitation cause of pot size is good in this case It worth a try i guess if it fails then hopefully i better success with growing yopo

    eBay/Gumtree finds

    I dunno about this one...iv seen kilo bags of hemp seeds sold on ebay as well as in my local health food shop... So my guess is it falls under some funny category of health and beauty hemp products (loop hole), possibly some one selling hemp seed as cannabis seed or cops....or maybe aliens. ...definitely aliens

    Noob's cacti

    Massive amounts of gratitude man i cant thank you enough for your generosity The spontaneous timing is amusing, altho we were both happy to be patient and agreed apon waiting was broken by unsaid enthusiastic energy on both sides I'll definitely add to the pass on program and hopefully the next lucky random candidate can do so to and it can continually grow and evolve with time. I might try and graft some of the slower growing cuts and maybe buy some pupping cream to speed things up a bit.....hopefully this time next year or sooner i can blow some other members mind with kindness. A million and one thank yous Ps if any one else would like to add/donate a cut/cuts to the pass it on concept to increase numbers and diversity in the collection for the next person please feel free to contact me
  20. Hi fellow cactus addicts My first real post on hear Anyways nessled in my seedling collection, in a takeaway container, amongst other lophs seedling is this little fellow, looks pretty weird huh. Im interested to hear people's thoughts on if its crested or not and if not whats going on. Its wayyy smaller than the rest an and approximately 3 months old Opinions please
  21. Spiky Mc Cactus Face

    Strange little loph seedling. Is it crested?

    Its still looking weird lol. But unfortunately the due to some horrible hot days it dried the container out a little, think i caught it in the nick of time but it looks like some damage might of occurred But hopefully its just were the seed capsule was sitting and finally come off and will green up with time..says the hopeful optimistic in me

    Lots of good philosophy going on hear. I im starting to feel that reaility is somewhere caught between the two sides. Fool or intellectual both are capable of happiness and truth. Im only just getting my head back from a journey last night so mind is still processing the goings. Will have to come back and make an intelligent later on

    Just out of curiosity, would you rather?

    I know this feeling well, i think any person of knowledge or the ability to see can agree its as much of a curse as it is a gift. Guess the same can be said for ignorance
