    Acacia talk.

    Many thnx from a Facebook ludite
  2. Dunno the chemistry of this one in a wastewater stream. There is probably assumptions that the wastewater stream leads to a treatment plant.... Not all plants are equal... It'll behave differently in absorption trenches (or any on-site ww) if your out the sticks as the microbes will be different,and lacking some processes. The "assumption" would be certain bacteria(primarily) in the ww plant break it down... Lol... Theory and practice are two different things though. If the wttp is treating to a lower standard (common....) or bypassed due to exceeding what it can handle ( ie spill shit water out into the environment after rainwater infiltration ...) then I wouldn't expect as rapid degradation out in the wild. Residency time is a big issue in ww management, even when processes are available... They may not stay in it long enough for treatment if undersized or overloaded. Tassies ww treatment is fckn pathetic BTW.... Dilution is still the solution to pollution...With a bit of latent wild biodegration of some products. Jaded Fck stops now

    Brf/verm spawn bag compression

    I'm presuming it's a domesticated agaricus sp (bisporus?) . If so they are a shroom with a fairly demanding "diet" as a secondary decomposer (different than most edible fungi as primary decomposers which can breakdown cellulose and lignin etc). Typically compost from herbivore crap as a substrate that has had other organisms break it down initially("mushroom compost" that gets sold is spent agaricus substrate) . In part this may explain the slow colonization as the substrate may be limiting. Disturbance would probably be best avoided unless trying to get onto another substrate. Agaricus are not the best at recovery and not really rapid to colonize compared to other species like oysters, reishi... Compaction defo not good for agaricus. Best grown out in tray/open tub with a casing layer placed when set up to fruit, due to high fresh air exchange required. Once colonized the casing sets the mycellium up for initiation and best conditions for fruiting. You maybe could of cased the top of the bag to fruit, but fruiting off the sides like oysters wouldn't be overly productive. However the substrate would still be lacking a bit. Best way I've found has been the basic old mushroom box kit. Colonized compost substrate, supplied with a casing layer. I've never scratch grown them, only primary decomposers like oysters, reishi, Shittake.... Give a bit more time I reckon and keep watch. You didn't mention temperature and such, so no idea if you are anywhere near the window for good to optimum growth. Dunno if you that helps, I wouldn't expect a booming crop off a substrate not compost though.

    Sceletium use for anxiety in dogs.

    Has reduced separation anxiety greatly in this case... Depending on the nature of the "psycho" it could help or hinder though. The fretting and "sooking" has really reduced considerably, and she has reduced in vigilance and the verging on extreme guarding instinct. Will relax now when I'm about doing something else but can't physically touch me (over a fence etc) , which was the greatest period of anxiety. Still gets up in my face... Lol... But I can live with that as part of her charm. The only side effect of note was the amped up effect, which was initially noticeable and have dialed it back. There was no sedation effect (and wanted to avoid it) . Typically for me I get a bit amped, and then chillaxed to sedated. I still would advise caution though, as dogs just can't Scooby doo tells us what's going on it's worth a trial for anxiety, dunno about bitey dogs and such though.

    WBs random photos

    'Tis HD.... But sadly it legacy pollution from the old tin mining days (this spot via bucket dredge) , high free copper levels in the water giving the eye pleasing hue. Devoid of aquatic life.

    Mimosa pudica feeding

    I presumed they were perennial.... And the cold and.. Lol.. Previously neglect ended them. The red headed stepson of encyclopedias tells me annual in temperate, potentially up a 2 year perennial in tropics. Learnt something new And that might change my tactics.

    Mimosa pudica feeding

    Yep they won't run off here.. Well until the averages warm up a bit not much I can't grow if I set my mind to it... Lol I've had them growing in some pretty poor potting mixes before and they do OK during the warmer times, outdoor here at least ends them. Wasn't sure if anyone that has put them in pots pampered them. The seed certainly holds its viability, I threw down some ancient seed and had most if not all take. I reckon I might just bump them to the along under supplementary lighting when I rotate them out to recover after I make a bit of room to work with.

    Quit cigs

    2 days before heart surgery Wasn't because of it... But it wasn't helping. After having the chest cracked open I really want to avoid that shit again. My resolve was bolstered after being taken offline during that event. I'd been on and off a few times, of prolonged and at times pretty heavy death stick use. Kicking off when I could just walk in and buy them in my school uniform of a morning. I never was a user of "spin", I still don't understand that. Spin users I've noticed Really struggle to kick the things. I at one stage had two bowls on the go mine and another for my brothers from other mothers as most wouldn't tackle my bowl. Still use tobacco on occasion in other forms smokeless, but ciggies can just F off as far as I'm concerned ... Ciggies are the lowest form of baccy IMO served up to us here - if at all, with some principally just being made mostly of "sheet".... Substituted sheet alright. FFS I found Indonesian ciggies as an example of being better quality than what we were, and now served up. Do I want one.... Yes, yes I do for I am an addict because the things did what they were designed to do. They smell like shit to me now though, decent pipe and some cigars still smell really good though and tempting as all hell. Having as much time away from second hand smoke helps a lot, and hide /remove ashtrays
