    Rhodiola Rosea plant/cutting

    I'm not far from having another crack at seed, I got some to germ from a member abroad (thank you again matey) but I killed them under lights/ heatmat through neglect. Slow growing from seed. The stratification was longer and a lot wetter than what I usually do, i think I went 14 weeks but would have to check notes. My germ% wasn't great, maybe technique, maybe seed, maybe it is the species. BTW may be of interest looking into the species : http://gen.lib.rus.ec/book/index.php?md5=5F95DED9E7926F3F4426A8E3BCFC1D22

    Festival Death

    Man dies after taking 'unknown substance' at Lost Paradise music festival By Jamie McKinnell and Angelique Lu Posted4 hours ago, updated22 minutes ago WATCH Duration: 52 seconds52s VIDEOPolice 'frustrated' by drug use at Lost Paradise festival A man is dead and two people are in hospital after taking an unknown substance at the Lost Paradise music festival, west of Gosford. Key points: The 22-year-old was one of about 11,000 people attending the Lost Paradise festival Police charged three people with drug supply offences and issued another 50 with court attendance notices for possession The death follows reforms in NSW that mean anyone who supplies a substance that kills someone can spend up to 25 years in jail The 22-year-old, from the Brisbane suburb of Toowong, died in Gosford Hospital about 8pm last night after attending the Glenworth Valley event. Lost Paradise began on Friday and has attracted a crowd of more than 11,000 people. NSW Police said a man and woman remain in a stable condition in hospital after they took an unknown substance and became sick. Fifty people have been handed court attendance notices for drug possession, despite police working with organisers for months prior to the event to ensure a strict "drug-free" policy was enforced. Three people have been charged with drug supply offences, including a 21-year-old Sydney man who was allegedly caught with over 100 MDMA pills and a 23-year-old man who allegedly had 80 MDMA pills and 65 bags of cocaine. Event 'strictly drug-free', say organisers In a statement, a Lost Paradise spokeswoman said the incident was "very distressing" and extended sincerest thoughts and condolences to the family of the deceased. Pill testing explained Pill testing can be misunderstood. Here's how it works. Read more "Lost Paradise is a strictly drug-free event that is about celebrating life, love and nature in a fun, safe and welcoming environment," they said. "A great deal of planning and effort goes into ensuring the safety and welfare of our festival-goers and event staff." The organisers said they worked closely with local police to make sure revellers respected the drug-free policy. NSW Ambulance also provided extensive medical support across the site, they added. "This year, we have also engaged DanceWize NSW, a NUAA program that is funded by the NSW Ministry of Health to educate people on the implications of drug use, and offer peer support and health resources," the statement said. Police reveal bizarre smuggling methods Acting Superintendent Rod Peet described planning for the event as "extensive" and insisted the police resources deployed there were adequate. Police have been searching cars and belongings as people enter the grounds and used drug dogs to detect illegal substances. But Acting Supt Peet said the methods people were using to smuggle drugs in were becoming very sophisticated. "People aren't carrying it in their pockets — they aren't that careless — they are quite calculated in the way they are secreting things," he said. Some revellers used a Vegemite jar with a secret compartment to hide their stash, while modified aerosol cans have also turned up. "On one instance, certainly someone was quite determined, someone inserted drugs into the stuffing of a barbecue chicken," Acting Supt Peet said. "I commend my police on their tenacity to search that thoroughly. That is the extent we're going to to insulate this event from drug use." Acting Supt Peet said police met with organisers this morning and agreed the festival would continue, but hinted at possible changes in the future. "It's a tragic event and there will be ramifications, one way or another, for the credibility of the event." IMAGELost Paradise festival organisers said the event had a strict drug-free policy.(Supplied: Lost Paradise) Death follows harsher punishments for suppliers The incident follows the deaths of two young revellers at the Defqon1 festival in Sydney in September, which triggered a fiery reaction from NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian who initially threatened to shut the event down. An expert panel was set up to investigate the problem of drug use at music festivals and the Government in October announced a new offence for dealers who supply substances that kill people. The maximum punishment for the new offence is 25 years in jail. Will pill testing save lives? Four young Australians were asked whether pill testing should be allowed at festivals, find out what they had to say here. Read more However, debate about whether pill testing would be a more effective measure continues to swirl despite the Government's opposition to it as an alternative to the "zero tolerance" drug policy. Pill testing was not considered by the expert panel and Ms Berejiklian has repeatedly argued it would be akin to giving the "green light" for revellers to take substances. Pill testing advocates reissued their push for a rethink following the Lost Paradise death, including the Take Control organisation, which was launched by drug and alcohol treatment provider the Ted Noffs Foundation. Spokesman Matt Noffs said the "just say no" strategy had failed and urged the Premier to listen to evidence about pill testing. IMAGELost Paradise festival organisers describe the event as "a celebration of life, love and nature".(Supplied: Lost Paradise) "Young people can get drugs easily, but don't know what they are taking," Mr Noffs said. "In responding to tragedy we must sometimes face hard truths." Long-time pill testing advocate and Greens MP David Shoebridge said politics was failing young people. "Young people want practical advice, real time accurate information and a government that helps them keep safe, not one who's only plan is to lecture and punish them," he said. The NSW Opposition has pledged to hold a drugs summit if it wins next year's state election, involving not only parents of young revellers but ambulance officers, police and clinicians. Leader Michael Daley said pill testing should not be off the table. "If you're going to hold a drug summit and you're going to say you'll listen to the experts, you can't shut one door to them," he said. "We'll look at all options." https://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-12-30/lost-paradise-music-festival-death/10674004 Have a safe festive run folks.... Know what your shit is, and how to dose, and what not to mix.

    Colonised wheat

    Corrugated cardboard soaked, and pulled apart to have the corrugated guts exposed for more surface will produce an OK substrate, I've had colonization and used it to expand but its never been really aggressive with Shittake for me vs other species. If you could find some fresh dry hardwood sawdust/shavings that's worth a crack with minimal mucking about. If it's green or old stored there is more mucking about.

    In the sprit of Christmas TREES!

    Radiata is common here...... Folk would raid plantations.. Bastards drop sap....that sap is like herpes. A few radiata xmas tree plantations have sprung up and they are getting interest.... I think it because they can go out and murder the tree... Lol Firs are not as sappy, many smell better than radiata weeds, although I find radiatas scent sickly. Over time I've grown the good woman a few in pots of different conifers, fraser fir was the winner in her opinion. ..thats covering smell, longevity, needle shape /shape, sap production and probably 40 other parameters I don't see. Meh.. It's a Fucking tree wrapped in plastic and shit Currently looking at the plastic mofo my lad has decorated..... Gunna have to start stratifying seed again. Edit - add Colour...Had to be the right green.. Lol

    History of cannabis prohibition pieces of shit. Raymond Yans President of the International Narcotics Control Board - 2012 to May 2014 Started on the board 2007 Well paid seat warmer .... I could start on the more modern presidents... But this one is special, thank him for for the staunch position that cannabis poses "a grave danger to public health and well being". Of course without supporting evidence.... Piece of shit

    Fruit fly incursion Tasmania

    Fruit fly detected on Flinders Island off north-east Tasmanian coast By Manika Dadson Posted5 hours ago IMAGEThe state has been on alert since a larvae-infested nectarine was found in February.(Biosecurity Tasmania) Biosecurity authorities in Tasmania are ramping up fruit fly control measures after the discovery of another adult fly on Flinders Island. The male fly was discovered in a trap at Lady Barron, a few hundred metres from a previously-affected property. Flinders Island was the first area in the state where Queensland fruit fly was detected in January, before other incursions were discovered in Spreyton, Devonport and George Town. Biosecurity Tasmania general manager Lloyd Klumpp said the new fruit fly was found late last week. "Following the detections on Flinders Island earlier this year we have an ongoing response on the island," Dr Klumpp said. "As part of our surveillance involved in the response, a single adult male was detected in one of our traps within a few hundred metres of a previous detection site earlier this year." This article contains content that is only available in the web version. Open the web version Dr Klumpp said eradication activities would resume around the detection site. The latest discovery means the current control area restrictions on Flinders Island will be extended until at least March. Control zones in mainland northern Tasmania will not be affected, and control measures there are expected to be lifted on January 9 if there are no new detections. Those measures include fruit not being allowed out of restriction zones due to the risk of the pest spreading. "We remain confident that we can eradicate fruit fly from Flinders Island and all of Tasmania and remain focussed on this goal," Dr Klumpp said. https://amp.abc.net.au/article/10627274 Alright guys.... Hang onto your hard hats... I'm expecting this to get outta hand again. Biosecurity clowns are about to get toey again, which is worth noting

    Acacia Germination

    Not sure if I understand.... But native soil shouldn't be used In pots as it "behaves" In ways not conducive to containers. Classic example is too much clay so won't drain well, and poor porosity issues for soil /air In a nutshell shouldn't put "dirt" in a pot and expect it to perform. The likely issue is it may not have drained well enough(?). Can amend it though... Decent growing media/potting mix is batched up to perform in containers and the constraints they have.
