today i mourned the loss of my prize acacias in the only 2 hour slot i had to visit them (the same one I got to visit my kids in)

we watered and fed what we had left

*adds pics quite a bit later when i get my phone cable*

at least only a few cactus seedlings have snuffed it

and at least I'm advantageous enough to be able to amicably store the plants where they've been 3 yrs at me old bag's :wacko: but since she booted me out for having an open mind and not sucking up to the govt and tryna tell her the drs meds aint the way to go...

its been a fuckery and a half... :blink:

at least the rainforest box seems to be loving the watering reigime my son rustles up for them too

definitely grateful they didnt get booted out too lol

anybody got a spare house to rent? ... :innocent_n:

Finally got a proper greenhouse! Some of my plant friends have been struggling without one, but that should change now.

Scored this for $50 from ALDI...

Just amazing flowers.

How to Farm & Grow Cordyceps Sinensis
Written by scott wolfenden

fotolia_13448708_XS.jpg?w=424&h=200&keep

Traditional Chinese medicine has used medicines derived from plants, such as cordyceps, for at least a thousand years.

Chinese tea with mint image by lefebvre_jonathan from Fotolia.com

Cordyceps sinensis is a mushroom that grows in the Himalayan mountains of the Tibetan Plateau region. It is known by the name "Chinese Caterpillar Fungus" because it is a parasite that grows in the wild on the larva of the ghost moth. Demand for this mushroom for use in extracts for Chinese medicine is strong both in coastal Chinese cities, as well as, in more recent years, for world export, and it has become a significant cash crop in the Himalayas. There are many species of the cordyceps. However, the cordyceps sinensis is the most significant in terms of worldwide demand. It is sold in a number of forms including whole-dried for use in cooking, capsule, powder and liquid.

Skill level: Easy

Things you need
  • Live cordyceps sinensis extracts
  • Silk worm residue
  • Rye grain
  • Plastic bags, glass jars

Show More

Instructions

  1. 1

    Place cereal grain, such as rye, in a dry plastic bag or glass jar. Make sure to sterilise with hot water or other method beforehand. While cordyceps sinensis grows on moth larva in the wild, it can also be grown in other hosts such as rye grain, millet or rice. Rye or millet produces a higher quality product than rice. Additionally, in China or countries other than the United States, a high quality product can be obtained using silk worm residue from dead silk worms. While these are easy to obtain in China and Japan, they are regulated in the United States and most growers there use grains. Silk worm residue from dead silk worms produces a higher quality product than does use of grains.

  2. 2

    Inoculate the substrate of rice, millet, rye or silk worm extract, with the cordyceps sinensis fungus. Temperature should be 20.0 to 23.3 degrees C. There should be diffuse light and atmospheric oxygen conditions comparable to sea level. Growth under these conditions should be for 28-30 days.

  3. 3

    Move the fungus and substrate in its glass or plastic containers to a controlled environmental chamber with 50 per cent oxygen, and 50 per cent nitrogen, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide. The temperature should be thirty-seven degrees F with no light. The fungus should grow under those conditions for 15-20 weeks.

  4. 4

    Harvest and process the mushrooms. The chemical composition of the cordyceps sinensis grown under these conditions will be almost identical to that in the wild. The mushrooms should be dried and can be sold as it is to consumers, or for processing into powder or liquid for use in the Chinese medicinal market.

;)

oh yah those shroomerie gods have a nice few threads on cordyceps I just found too

this one is gold dusthttp://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/10764739/fpart/1/vc/1

Checked on my psychotria cuttings, low and behold, the nexus was the first three out of viridis and carthagenesis to sprout.

It is tiny however, i don't know if it will survive. The cuttings were only put down about 6-8 weeks ago.

A split Datura seed pod, interestingly it just split overnight a few days ago. I figured it'd open over a period of time. Kinda reminds me of the eggs from the movie Alien lol.
