  1. Some shots of some Chlorociboria aeruginascens I found this morning. Unfortunately, I didn't have my camera with me, only my phone.
  2. I'm going down the path of hardening them off from the outset. Now for the hard part - working out materials, systems, and labour, and providing costings estimates. Short deadline to do all this. If funding is approved, I'll let you know how it goes.
  3. Good tips, thanks for the info. That's what I figure with the tunes too, ultimately bot allowing seedlings to get rootbound is the best approach. Do you make your own media? Or what the native mix from somewhere like ANL be adequate? Given this first stage will be a trial, I'm really looking for optimal success rates to help guarantee that it will be scaled up.
  4. Also, any input on whether those tubes with internal ribs really do promote beneficial root development?
  5. That's right, Skellum, it'll be a diverse range of species from grasses and groundcovers through to trees. I was hoping you'd reply, @waterboy 2.0. That's exactly what I was thinking, grow them hard to reduce mortality later. Shade is definitely a consideration for understory species. What do you think of a tunnel with wire mesh, and shade at one end, to protect from animals? Pallets or pallets on crates as benches?
  6. Looking into small commercial scale propagation of Australian natives for a conservation project, and trying to decide on what kind of greenhouse / shadehouse to build, or whether one is even required. Anyone have any useful input or experience?
  7. Interested in hearing how you're using your still air box / how you've made it. I expect that if technique is your problem, using a laminar flow hood will not help you much.
  8. Willing to split at all? Only after one book in there really...
  9. Many thanks, Torsten.
  10. Attempting to create a new one here, so that's not a solution for me unfortunately.
  11. I tried that, but the field is still not there, just a message that it needs content in it.
  12. Logged on for the first time in a while and tried to send a PM to another member. Unfortunately, the dialogue box for the message body appears to be broken. The dialogue boxes for the recipient name and subject are fine, and can be written in, but the message box isn't present. Can this be fixed, please?
  13. Hey Will, if this is the culture you received from me many years ago, I've always questioned whether it really is Pleurotus nebrodensis. If memory serves me correctly, I received the culture from Paul (speedy); I'm not sure how he came to the conclusion it P. nebrodensis. Interestingly, looking into it again now, I see Aloha Medicinals sells a culture of it (and uses one of my photos without permission - seems to be a few sites doing that with my photos), originating from China. This article discusses some of the relevant taxonomy if you're interested. Anyway, good to see you're enjoying the fruits of your labour!
  14. Can't believe this thread is still going. I almost feel bad for starting it. It's become an immense, unwieldy beast, squandering bandwidth on a site that has historically, and continues to, struggle to meet server costs.
  15. Couldn't agree more. Entheogenesis is an incredible collaboration, which brings together people from all walks of life, and with a very diverse set of backgrounds, interests, and approaches to the questions and subjects discussed at these events. Hard to believe how many years have passed since the last outdoor event. I'll be there 100%.
