    Lophophora Research List

    Google Scholar has a a tonne for you to consider.

    On Ngozumpa Glacier

    No idea, would love to know. Found at around 4,700 m on the longest glacier in Nepal.

    Lions mane myc or yeast contam

    From memory, no. It's been a long time since I've grown it though, but it I don't recall it ever getting anything like oysters, for example. All the grain will have mycelium present, but not thick.

    Lions mane myc or yeast contam

    Yeast isn't filamentous like that. That mycelium doesn't look unusual for H. erinaceous.

    Ephedra gerardiana in Nepal

    Female, but immature cones. A little too early in the season for them to be mature.

    Ephedra gerardiana in Nepal

    Just a few photos. Found on the outskirts of Manang, at around 3600 m At Tilicho Base Camp at around 4200 m. Small plants in the fresh snow at high altitude, at around 4800m, outside of Gokyo. As above. It was difficult to tell whether the yak was grazing on the Ephedra itself, or only the grass around it. Not the most palatable of plants.

    RIP andyamine

    Been a long time since I've been on this forum, only just seeing this now. Literally a day too late for the camp it seems. Really sad news to hear. He was far too young to pass, particularly given the circumstances. Much love to all who were close with him.

    Wish I could get the time off for this. So disappointing...

    Chlorociboria aeruginascens

    Some shots of some Chlorociboria aeruginascens I found this morning. Unfortunately, I didn't have my camera with me, only my phone.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. Also, any input on whether those tubes with internal ribs really do promote beneficial root development?
  13. 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?
  14. 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?
