  1. I planted some B caapi seeds sourced from Europe (unknown vendor, not communicative) and would like to identify the strain (or species) if possible. There is a larger leaf plant which looks like a typical caapi to me. Several of these grew and quickly. Then there is a plant with smaller leaves which is taking much longer to grow but still looks like a caapi. Variation within species or different? Then there is a random imposter which I can't identify. Could be anything but I'm interested to ID it. Maybe a tropical tree seedling from existing soil? Time will tell. Any info from experienced growers is appreciated.
  2. Hi all, I am about to start a course of daily doses of caapi to assist with treating anxiety and depression. I brewed up 50g of vine today, and plan to space this over a week, taking the equivalent of around 7g of vine daily in a tea. My brew was a simple water brew with only a tiny squeeze of lemon added at the start, and it was made with love and attention, I sang a few songs to it while cooking and also blew some palo santo smoke over it at the end. My hope is that it helps me break free from some bad mental patterns that are plaguing me lately, and I'll assess progress after a week. If things are going well, I will extend my course. Does anyone else have any experience with this? I'd be interested to hear your thoughts, and I'm happy to receive PMs or you can post them here. I also have Rue, but I am starting this experiment with Mama Caapi as I wish to develop a close working relationship with her, and have heard some good results. I'll try to post daily here as to how I am feeling and I hope this may eventually serve as a resource for others who may wish to try this path. I have taken SSRI's in the past, but they leave me feeling hollow and mediocre, like the feeling I used to have days after heavy Raving. I plan to make other changes in my life to complement this path, but one step at a time. Let's do this. I have a good feeling about it. Lots of love, G.
  3. Greetings to all members of this wonderful community. I have been lurking for a while, but now is time to contribute. I'm really expanding my ethnobotanical garden this year, so what better place to share and get valuable input than the Corroboree. I started most of my plants from seeds with the exception of some cacti and a few cuttings of plants I was either not able to get to germinate or couldn't get my hands on the seeds. So enough talking, let's see the plants! Disclaimer: I live in Europe, in a country where all the plants I'm about to show you are legal to cultivate. My Rubiaceae - Coffea Arabica ("Coffee") I bought this cutting a couple months ago, it has put out some new leaves and seems to be doing good - Mitragyna Speciosa ("Kratom") Since I can't find cuttings anywhere here in europe, I started my kratom grow from seeds. These are the Rifat strain, from 2 to 3 months old. The germination rate was pretty good, about 75%, certainly a lot more than I expected from reading about mitragyna germination online. The leftmost yellow pots are tiny Red Thai sprouts. - Mitragyna Parvifolia ("Kaim") Nothing to show yet but I started some seeds, will update if and when they sprout. - Psychotria Viridis ("Chacruna") I received these plants about 2 weeks ago and they've already both put out a new set of leaves, and pushing a second one. I'll be taking some leaf cuttings soon. - Psychotria Alba ("Amyruca") Given to me for free by the person I bought the Chacruna plants from, there are 4 or 5 separate plantlets. - Tabernanthe Iboga ("Iboga") I've had these plants for about 3 months, I kept the back 3 in a humid environment, and the front 3 in dry air to acclimatize. The back row have grown one new set of leaves in those 3 months, the others have shed all their leaves and are starting to grow new ones. My Fabaceae - Acacia Acuminata (narrow phyllodes variety) These sprouted about 3 weeks ago - Acacia Confusa ("Formosan Koa") These seedlings are a little over a month old - Anadenanthera Peregrina ("Yopo") About 10 days old seedling and others on day 1 of sprouting - Chamaecrista Fasciculata ("Partridge Pea") Sprouted about a week ago - Desmanthus Illinoiensis ("Bundleflower") Sprouted a couple weeks ago - Mimosa Hostilis ("Jurema") The seedlings in both pots are about a month old - Mimosa Pudica ("Sensitive Plant") About 2 months old seedling My Lamiaceae - Coleus Blumei - Leonotis Leonurus ("Wild Dagga") Nothing to show yet, started the seeds a few days ago - Leonotis Nepetifolia ("Klip Dagga") The plants are about 2 months old - Leonurus Sibiricus ("Marijuanilla") I had a plant (the dry stick) that flowered and set seeds, the sprouts come from that. - Salvia Divinorum ("Diviner's sage") Received the cuttings May 24th My Asteraceae - Artemisia Absinthium ("Wormwood") Got the cutting a couple months ago, it has tripled in size. - Calea Zacatechichi ("Mexican Dream Herb") My 3 Calea plants from which I took a bunch of cuttings today as you can see in the pic - Spilanthes Oleracea ("Toothache Plant") Some of my Spilanthes plants, the biggest purplish one is starting to flower - Stevia Rebaudiana ("Sweet Leaf") Sprouted yesterday, took less than a week - Tagetes Lucida ("Mexican Tarragon") This seedling is about a month and a half, I have a bunch of other ones but this is the best looking so far. My Vines - Argyreia Nervosa ("Hawaiian Baby Woodrose") The bigger one is about 2-3 months old - Banisteriopsis Caapi ("Ayahuasca") I burned the leaves by spraying some epsom salts solution I had in my sprayer for other plants and forgot about. Anyone knows what's up with the very narrow leaved one? It definitely is caapi, I made sure the sprout came from a caapi seed when it sprouted. I have more seeds on the way to me right now. - Ipomoea Tricolor ("Heavenly Blue") The growth rate of these plants is incredible, this is about a month old seedling grown on a windowsill the whole time. I really need to find a place for it to climb. - Ipomoea Violacea ("Morning Glory") This is one of my morning glory seedlings, the other one sprouted in an other ethnobotanical plant's pot and is starting to climb it, pretty cool looking. - Passiflora Incarnata ("Medicinal Passionflower") My 3 cuttings and little unexpected seedling which sprouted over a month after being sown My Active Succulents - Bacopa Monnieri ("Brahmi") - Cissus Quadrangularis ("Pirandai") Got the cuttings from my mother's big plant, will post pictures of it soon - Delosperma Cooperi ("Iceplant") Got this one from my mother who was neglecting it - Sceletium Tortuosum ("Kanna") My bigger plant which was a small cutting a couple months ago, and some seedlings. I'm going to take cuttings of the bigger plant, I'll document the process. My Active Cacti I'll just post a family picture of my lophophora and ariocarpus collection, here are the species I have, just play where's Waldo - Ariocarpus Fissuratus sp. ("Living Rock") - Ariocarpus Fissuratus (var. Hintonii) - Ariocarpus Fissuratus (var. Intermedius) - Lophophora Williamsii ("Peyote") - Variegated Lophophora Williamsii - Lophophora Williamsii var. caespitosa ("Multi-headed Peyote") - Lophophora Williamsii var. Grymii (Dwarf variety) - Matucana Madisoniorum (not active but was once rumored to be) If you really want to play where's Waldo, try to spot the variegated seedling in the last picture, it looks like it might turn out to look just like my bigger variegated loph. hint: it's in the lower right corner, above the 4 that are in a line. Also peep the weird 3-headed seedling. As for my trichocerei: - Trichocereus Bridgesii ("Achuma") The first one is about a meter tall and is the bluest cactus I've ever seen, it just started to root and put out some new growth. The second one is about 30cm tall and same thing, just started rooting and growing again. The third is my couple of monstrose. Finally a bunch of seedlings. There are also some bigger ~8 months old seedlings in the 1st lophophora family picture above. - Trichocereus Pachanoi ("San Pedro") The first one is about 85-90cm, very blue in person. Looks like it might be a cross but it was sold as pachanoi. The second one looks like a Claude clone, it is very thick, about 85-90cm too. The last one is my cool broccoli looking crested pachanoi. The rest are some smaller cuttings and seedlings. And of course check out the dozen pachanoi cuttings in the first loph picture above. - Trichocereus Peruvianus ("Peruvian Torch") On the right & middle of the first picture - Trichocereus Terscheckii In a 7x7cm pot - Opuntia Cylindrica Rumoured to be active, I don't really believe it but erowid says it can contain 0.9% mescaline. My mother collected this one in Portugal. I've seen some crested ones online, they really look funky with the leaves. My Other Ethnobotanicals & Active Plants - Camellia Sinensis ("Tea") - Catha Edulis ("Khat") ~ month old seedlings - Combretum Quadrangulare ("Sakae Naa") Seedling at about a month and a half - Eschscholzia Californica ("Californian Poppy") - Heimia Salicifolia (Sinicuichi) Recently took cuttings from it and it bushed it out nicely - Ilex Paraguaiensis ("Yerba Maté") All the lighter green leaves are new growth from the past 2 or 3 months - Lactuca Virosa ("Wild Lettuce") This stuff grows everywhere but I had to pot one up for completion sake - Nicotinia Rustica ("Mapacho") - Nicotinia Tabacum ("Virginia Gold") - Papaver Somniferum (Persian White, Giant Tasmanian, Hen & Chicks) - Phalaris Arundinacea ("Reed Canary Grass") - Silene Capensis ("African Dream Root") That's it (for the moment), I'll try to update at least once a week or when I have something interesting to show.

  9. I have some B. caapi which I've grown to about 2 feet tall in an indoor growbox. I've decided (what with the new legislation) that I'd like to move them outdoors onto the balcony (Sydney Eastern suburbs), just to attract less curiosity from visitors like estate agents, cleaners etc. What I plan to do is pot them in some decent-sized pots, and give each one some vertical trellis to climb up. I have a big (6 x 6 foot) trellis which I'll chop up vertically into 5 or 6 strips, and fix each strip to a pot, which will make the plants more portable if I decide to move (rather than having them all grow up one big trellis). My question is though, what's the best way to keep them nice & compact? I don't want them growing long & stringy up the trellis, because they'll run out of climbing space pretty quick. Should I just prune the top buds off? or would it be better to train them to grow around the trellis in a spiral? Also, the balcony is right on the ocean & gets very salty at times. will this be an issue? I have some tropical chillis (trindad scorpions) on the balcony already, they're fine. They did go fully dormant & lost all their leaves over winter, but they're growing back nicely now. Also also, I'm thinking about moving my P. viridis out onto the balcony - I assume they'll be ok as long as it doesn't freeze, but should I make sure they don't get full sun? has anyone grown viridis in full sun outdoors? cheers -E
  10. Hey guys - I'm chasing plants, cuttings or viable seeds of Alicia sp and A. peregrina, caapi seed particularly known varieties, and plants or cuttings of caapi varieties such as Caupuri, Cielo, Nuevo Ola, Ourinhos/yellow, Enano, gold. I don't suppose anyone can help out? Cash or trade as you prefer. cheers! -ef
  11. Gday Chasing some B.caapi. I have some interesting things to trade in return. pm for details. CLOSED - SORTED
  12. I feel a lot for my Caapi and it is testing my own ethics on keeping things that are alive restrained. The feeling is similar to the one I have towards animals, I will only eat animals that I have killed and I am yet to feel like I can cross that personal boundary. It’s like a caged animal at the moment, trying to break free. There’s a runner coming from the main trunk (if you can call it that due to it’s small size) that found and liked the bamboo trellis I made for it, which it scaled in no time. It’s continued on looking for a taller host to climb, though in the confines of my bathroom, it’s got buckley's chance. It’s like it has now figured that this runner has failed and is now sending out TWO runners from the last know stable point on the bamboo trellis. I haven’t the heart to cut the first runner for some reason. It’s the 1st plant that has made me feel this way. For now I have put a hook in the wall for the main shoot. Who knows, I just might have a Caapi vine climbing all around my bathroom...
