It holds potential for land management, applications include Carbon sequestration (currently calculated at ~ 3 - 4 x the efficiency of rainforest plots of the same size) Cleaning heavy metals from waste water Treating sewerage *The applications listed above are theoretical until proper research papers are published. There's not a lot of information out there about this plant, but I found this -> 'The medicinal properties are sedative, aromatic as well as antiseptic. Some of vetiver essential oil constituents include benzoic acid, furfural, valerenol, terpinen-4-ol and khusimol. Khus roots essential oil is extracted and utilized for perfumes, aromatherapy, cosmetic, creams, herbal skin care as well as soaps used in a Ayurveda.

    Wtb Erythroxylum sp. (WA)

    Hey guys, Interested in varieties of Erythroxylum sp. that people may have seed of. Please send me a PM if you can help, handsome reward offered.
  4. Cheers mountain goat. I've just potted them up with sand, soil and cacti mix with a little coir. I put rocks in the bottom of the pots to encourage draining. What's a cheap gravel sized soil alternative? All of the ones I've got in pots atm are already rooted. I'll make sure to do that with the cuttings i've taken as I did pull out quite a few that had been sitting there rotting all winter because I didn't do this properly.

    Sinichuichi drooping like f

    Cheers, i'll try more water. It's reticulated by my boar where it is so I thought it would be alright. Will try hand watering. A bigger pot is definitely a good idea, i'll do that too.

    Cheers MountainGoat, the girth was throwing me because i've only seen skinny long form TBM. I'll grow it out and see whatsup
  7. Awesome, cheers for posting Gimli. I'm getting into beekeeping soon myself. My partner was visited by an entity that told her to save bees and has since been asked by a friend if she'd be interested in learning how to start a hive. I don't know too much about beekeeping so I'm looking forward to learning more

    Does anyone here grow sinichuichi? If so, any tips on stopping this droop I'm seeing in the leaves? I understand they like humidity but I don't have a greenhouse.. Hoping that's not the factor causing this.

    wtb TBM long form

    Is this the long form TBM?
  10. Cheers Micromegas, I've got a sausage x something or other from Gimly but it's just a baby. Here's a close up of the pup that my neighbour gifted me, maybe it can further your ID a bit. Also while I've got yaz here, is this the long variation of TBM that is said to be scarce? And what's the skin damage from / can I fix it?

  13. So curiosity got the better of me and I ordered a few plant growth regulators off ebay. I'm going to feed them to things in my garden and post up the results here. The PGRs I ordered are brassinolide, triacontanol and paclobutrazol.
