    urban myth...

    If anybody is still interested, I have found an article from ABC that was updated in February 2016 stating that although alternative methods have been trialled the Yarra city council in Melbourne is still using glyphosate in their parks for weed control. Here is the link : http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-02-16/councils-still-using-herbicide-that-probably-causes-cancer/7168464 I think it would be wise to avoid any mushroom growing in a public park that doesn't have weeds or grasses growing in close proximity. Then again many mushrooms are really good at bioaccumilation and can absorb a variety of heavy metals and other compounds that are present in their growing medium. So even if you find mushrooms growing in the wild it could pay to find out if there has ever been any human activity in that area. I know that old fashioned gold prospectors used mercury as part of the processing stage. This or any other chemical could potentially be absorbed by the mushrooms and lead to some unpleasant symptoms. I could easily see how the strychnine myth could have manifested over the years.

    Argyreia nervosa- inducing seeding

    Howdy ladies and gents! I have recently discovered a one year old Argyreia nervosa on my friends property that has not yet gone to seed. I was curious if there is a method that can be used to induce or speed up the production of seeds on the plant in sub tropical conditions. It is currently in the ground in great organic soil and is about three meters tall and covering a large section of fence. It is in great health and growing by the day, but still no flowers or seeds for over a year! Does it need more time to mature? Thanks in advance.

    Botany study within Melbourne

    Hello. I have been tossing up what I want to do for the past few years and have now settled on studying Botany in Melbourne. The issue I have is that there are two universities that have this course available and I can only chose one, either La Trobe, or the University of Melbourne. Both look equally appealing so I'm on the fence....bigtime! I plan to apply to one of these universities this week and commence study during second semester intake this year. Can anybody offer assistance with my decision who has previously or currently studied at either of these universities? Cheerios!!!!

    Looking for B. Caapi in Perth

    Howdy. I'm looking for an established Banistereopsis Caapi plant to purchase or trade. Preferably a potted specimen around the 1m mark growing on a trellis or stake Or anything larger. It will be planted into the ground in a well suited location at the base of an umbrella tree practically in full shade and misted daily. I can arrange a pick-up or a delivery would be much appreciated. If anybody has any connections please let me know. The sooner the better as the Perth summers can get pretty hot and dry and a transplant is stressful enough. Thanks in advance.

    Botany study within Melbourne

    Wow, that's a lot to consider. So far I'm leaning towards the uni of Melbourne So the seminar schedule ( http://www.botany.unimelb.edu.au/botany/news/seminars.html ) pretty much covers all of my interests. I'm quite excited to see all of those seminars, especially the talk on the first sexual fungi. I also like the campus itself, and the course plan resonates with me=y current interests within biological science greatly.. http://bsc.unimelb.edu.au/plant-science La Trobe has some stiff competition. Cheers for the help. and what are you planing to study?

  23. I wasn't too sure as to where to post this, but I have come up with an idea that I have not yet come across in the Cacti / succulence community before; Valuing cacti or succulence by their weight. I have bought and sold a lot of cacti through this forum and through other mediums before and weather buying or selling have I have always come across the value of the cacti being determined by length. This has in many instances backfired on me and on other people I know, For example; when purchasing some named Bridgesii clones at 15 - 25 cm at $1 a cm, I thought I was getting a pretty stock standard price only to receive the cacti and discover that their diameter was no larger than my thumb, I felt truly ripped off. If the cacti were being sold by weight this problem would have been avoided. So Before making a radical proposal to ask everyone to begin using units of weight when selling cacti Id like to know all your opinions on the idea. Here are a few points to consider: How this would affect the legality of trading and selling cacti due to weight commonly being used to sell illicit substances. The honesty of the seller, where the cacti could be watered heavily before sale to increase its value with water weight. Whether weight could just be used in a new format detailing the cacti for sale on this forum whilst also including diameter, length, any previous diseases the cutting has had, etc.. The simplicity in determining shipping costs ...And while on the topic, I would also like to see a more organised format of trade and sell threads on this forum including Pictures and most importantly the disease history of the cacti. I have had cacti sent over from other states only to discover later they they had scale on them. We have to take responsibility for pests and disease crossing borders as well. A more professional approach to The sale and trade of cacti could really assist us with our passion and the way that these plants are viewed by government bodies and the general public. Ok, so without further adoooooooand without getting too antsy on this idea, please discuss away.

    Khat seedlings (Perth)

    Salvia Divinorum is Controlled in Australia, so you wont find any through this forum. Id also suggest that you edit your post for obvious reasons. Also Salvia Divinorum seeds have one of the lowest germination rates in the plant kingdom; hence the square, rigid and hollow design of the stem of the plant. This is intended to grow to a certain height where it can no longer support its own weight and therefore snaps whilst still connected by the outside tissue of the stem. The snapped section will then sit on the ground where it will root itself thereby creating a clone. I've actually heard that Salvia wouldn't exist today if it wasn't for human interferance through propagation by the Mazateks and surrounding tribes. The ipomea violacea actually grows rampant though western and northern suburbia within Perth although due to the climate it rarely goes to seed. PEACE!
