  1. 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.
  2. Hello, I've been doing a lot of research and would love to get any feedback on my first attempt at a Mitragyna Speciosa tissue culture (which is legal plant/tree in my location). I know there are a few threads on here that have addressed this (shonman, Darklight), and I'm not sure if I should post on there and resurrect, or just start a new topic/thread; don't want to hijack shonman's thread, so I'm starting this as a new thread. I appreciate the time, energy, and resources that the members here have put into their practice, and would love to politely pick their brains; I understand that experience was hard-won, so I don't want to offend and ask for "info-freebies". My first hurdle is that I have limited mother plant material, and would really like to have at least one successful replication before I run out of plant. I've been working on this for a few months and have not had one yet; many were lost to contamination. A little about my method: -Working under plastic bin hood - WPM at label suggested strength - SIDNC (Milton Tablets) at 5000ppm for 15 minutes, but I wonder if my tissue samples are too large? Anyone tried 300-400ppm for 24 or so hours? -I also mix the SIDNC into the medium at 0.032%, but having a hard time adding it at the right time (ie. low enough temp to keep avail chlorine) without the medium ending up a little too soft. It's almost as if I need to heat/microwave the medium again, but that would destroy the SIDNC protection, right? For medium prep via microwave, pre SIDNC, how long do you let it boil? - 10% v/v coconut water - 4% Honey - 0.5 mg/l TDZ (this strength was at suggestion of fellow practitioner, open to suggestions on strength or using it at all?) Best way to dissolve TDZ powder? I've heard that petioles are best with this species (can anyone confirm that; goal is micropropagation) (I knocked off a leaf, so I decided to try that also, anyone had success with leaves of this plant?) What's the best way to position the sample on/in the medium? Size and cut of sample? Has anyone been able to micropropagate this with only two phases of medium (#1 medium=produce shoots AND roots, then #2 medium=hardening), OR does it need three phases of medium (#1=shoots, #2=roots, #3=hardening), OR four phases of medium (#1=callus, #2=shoots, #3=roots, #4=hardening) OR different combo...? Any thoughts on hormone use for these phases, I know 2,4 D is good for this particular plant to produce callus, but callus is not my end goal, Im not sure how to get callus to reorganize to shoots & roots. Air supply (hole in lid), I've read both nays and yays as to whether or not it needs it, right now, no holes, too worried about dust mites, etc getting in. I saw a thread post on here from a few years ago saying there might be an article/paper/protocol put out or published on this by Darklight and a few others, did that ever happen? I searched and searched, but could not find anything; I wish there were a manual for this;) After jumping in and doing a few trial runs, I can deeply appreciate how challenging and rewarding this can be. I wholeheartedly appreciate any and all feedback and tips! And I hope I've followed proper protocol for rules and etiquette on this post! I normally keep to myself, but after lack of success I realized I needed to reach out for help on this one. I only have pics of my most recent batch. The last one (#5) must be contaminated, can anyone "Name That Contam"?
  3. Mitragyna speciosa (Kratom) extracts have been popular around the world for some time. I have searched the forum and read around and I am having trouble finding clear instructions on the best way to get the most out of this product. I have recently been given the opportunity to bio essay and am waiting for the arrival a 15g batch of 20:1 extract to arrive at my holiday destination. I have a high opiate/opioid tolerance both natural and developed. I have found that using DXM lowers this threshold but not considerably. I am interested in getting the lovely effect I get from a range of opiates and opioids from kratom. I am interested in higher range experiences. I have read methods ranging from chews to teas and also smoking. Can we propagate this thread with peoples techniques and suggestions for getting the most out of these extracts with 20:1 ratio or similar. From what I can tell a good strong dose of this extract is 1 to 2g. So what ways should I try to ingest. Would also like comments on things that may potentate the experience. Do the same potentiators as with opiates prove to be effective. Things like Anti-Histamines, Grapefruit Juice, Benzos etc. Thanks for the advice, sorry if it has been covered but I thought a thread that was less discussion and more reports on how to get the most out of the experience and detailed methods of preparation and ingestion .
