    Nuytsia floribunda (WA Christmas Tree)

    I've only had the opportunity to go N. florifbunda IDing once, and I didn't see any hosted by Acacia either. I dream about this and was encouraged by something I read that made it sound like Acacia auminata and Acacia cyclops could make good hosts. “Experiments in which haustoria-bearing associations of Nuytsia partnered with nodulated Acacia hosts (Acacia acuminata and A. cyclops) were fed 15N2 showed significant transfer of 15N to the parasite, but failed to determine whether the label had been acquired through haustoria or directly by Nuytsia roots following turnover of nodule and root residues of the host in the rooting medium. A parallel study using the unusual non-protein amino acid, djenkolic acid, as a marker of benefit from the djenkolic acid-containing host A. cyclops, showed appearance and progressive build-up of the compound in foliage of Nuytsia over a 6 month period after partnering the species in pot culture. Presence of the compound at final harvest in xylem sap of both partners but not in soil solution of the cultures strongly indicated xylem transfer via haustoria as the principal avenue for N benefit to the parasite.” Calladine, A., & Pate, J. (2000). Haustorial Structure and Functioning of the Root Hemiparastic Tree Nuytsia floribunda (Labill.) R.Br. and Water Relationships with its Hosts. Annals of Botany, 85(6), 723-731.

    Nuytsia floribunda (WA Christmas Tree)

    Apparently they can survive without a host as juveniles. I've heard Goodenia is a host used in cultivation but they grow on Acacia acuminata in the wild. It would be cool if they could be hosted on other Acacia too...

    Nuytsia floribunda (WA Christmas Tree)

    I had a crack at growing N. floribunda from seed. I had about 10 total, which I got from Zanthorrea Nursery. I made a mix of organics to river sand at a ratio of about 1:1, placed some in a takeaway container and some in a pot. I pushed the seeds down lightly on top of the mix, added some smoke starter granules and gave a medium to heavy water misting. I put the lid on the takeaway container. I left both batches in a low to partial sunlight in late summer, temperature probably ranged between 20-35 degrees celsius. After a week or so I gave some more water to the seeds in the pot, but not in the take away container as it was still damp. Nothing happened for four – six weeks. Then, two seeds germinated, both in the takeaway container. When I transplanted the seedlings into an equivalent soil mix in a pot and moved them into slightly more sun they died after about two weeks. Next time I think I will keep them in a green house until they are more mature. I've also attached some info provided by the Zanthorrea Nursery. I think they were claiming they were the only successful cultivator, but I have since heard Westgrow Farm Trees have had some success. I rekon we can do it, we just gotta try harder!

    Is there ABG tac OP going around as ABG werd OP? I have some of these plants and they look quite similar.

    Roadside find in Tas

    Both looking P. sub to me

    Roadside find in Tas

    From what I can see you have picked two mushrooms. I'm pretty confident the one with cuts in the cap is P. sub. Can you post an image of the stem and gills on the mushroom without cuts in the cap?

    Roadside find in Tas

    I'd like to see the stem and gills on the little guy, but looking like P. subaeruginosa to me.

    regrowth study in 2019

    Is a replanting effort likely? Sounds like an awesome project. It was nice to see this https://www.bialabate.net/news/the-peyote-files-chacruna, and I think more public awareness of the implications of wild harvesting wouldn't go astray. Although in the case of the Big Bend population, it sounds like the harvesters (as collectors) might have been aware of these implications and just not cared

    Happy Wattle Day!

    Has anyone seen DMT marketed as a product of A. courtii on the darknet?

    Trichocereus returned to its own genus

    The tone of the blog suggests this is big news? I'm surprised I haven't heard more people discuss Lodé's work, especially as those texts were published years ago. I can't find full texts of Taxonomy of the Cactaceae 1 and 2, but I checked out some reviews and it sounded like Lodé used DNA testing as secondary, rather than primary data. So perhaps his findings are not so ground-breaking? Keen to hear people's thoughts on these texts in relation to Trichocereus.

    Australian psilocybin therapy trial

    The psilocybin trial has ethics approval, but I think there are still a few bureaucratic hurdles to jump. Hopefully it goes ahead. Vince discussed his microdosing study on ABC news a couple of weeks ago. Great stuff.
