Hey Folks, Up for cheap grabs are at least two 10 year old B. Caapi Vines....My property is going to market soon and I guarantee my plants will be torn out and the block leveled. So a rare offer to anyone willing to come and harvest VINES, ROOTS and ALL. My health is poor including a bad back so I am unable to assist much with their removal but I can provide garden tools required and cold drinks/amenities etc. I took the photos below of just the very bases of the vines one of which stretches 30 odd foot up a Liquid Amber tree...There are Meters of thick Vine (Black and Yellow) here and as I said, take the roots and all. I also have Narrow Leaf Khat trees on this property which can be removed if you are willing. Not pictured are the 10 year old Psychotria bushes that hedge the Vines...All of it must go to one of you rather than the dump. Normally I wouldn't ask for money for such plants but alas, health issues cost money even with our system. I recall foot long lengths of vine going for $60 each in 2009 by a regular member everyone knows, you wont pay anywhere near that rate.....you will walk away with meters of the stuff and whatever other things that pique your interest. Countless cuttings could be taken, but who in their right mind would be offering Roots and all B. Caapi? Make me an offer before or after you inspect the Vines and trees...Let me know if you want more photos and I'll take some.

Ah, some sense (good to see). Top tricho clones go for $2 per cm, not caapi.
But I guess its been nearly a decade since 09, much more caapi available nowadays at realistic prices (especially here on SAB).

I'm in the Shoalhaven (South coast NSW) - 13ish hrs drive south of you.
I'm tempted to drive to Sydney park at the airport, fly up, hire a ute in brissy, buy the plants, drive back to Sydney and dump the ute, load my own ute up and drive back down south. I have a 2 door hylux with a huge tray though, probably silly flying up and hiring a ute, i'd spend 4 hrs driving to sydney and 1 hour waiting for the plane, then an hour fucking around getting picked up at the other end/getting a hire car... Driving is probably not much more time consuming & likely cheaper $$ too. Hmm, going to be hard to orchestrate as I'm busy, hosting guests for the next 10 days. Some local will pick them up (the vines & others) for sure before then I reckon...  Fkn spewing!

I'd be looking to grab the root mass of the 2x 10 year old Caapis + 6-8foot of attached vine, on every shooting limb growing from the root masses (dozen(s) feet per rootmass I estimate judging by photos). I want fatttt established plants I can plant down here (in a non ideal climate, compared to yours) so hopefully they can take off with some resilience and establish themselves, settle in & survive. I'd be looking for maybe a viridis bush or two as well, but dug up and chucked in the ute for 1-2 days, then brought down here into brutal cold, might just see them fail hard & perish, wasting my time? I think P.Nexus and P.Cartha are more cold resilient vs P.Viridis, from what I've head.  I've got nice Courtii growing at the moment, so I am not entirely without.

Anyway I will keep an eye on this plant sale thread of yours over the next fortnight. And once my guests leave I will assess funds & seriously consider the pilgrimage up north if those two root masses haven't sold by then, I don't like my odds though. This is a great sale that will fly out the door I reckon.


Hope the house sale/move goes well & your health improves sketchykid.
Make la medicina with your garden before u move & sell it all, maybe it will provide some much needed healing.



Kindest regards,
Skel.

I'm with you Skellum, (the bit about how well will they do over winter). i suspect they will hibernate and thrive come spring, my vines and viridis are still growing here in Sydney though we've just had our coldest week so far...

 

hmmm,

 

if you do decide to initiate your crazy plan i'd consider driving my van up to meet you, or co drive so it could possible be a 36 hour trip (12 hours of digging is my estimate ,) it would be work dependent but im flexible - weekdays suit me best. id be happy with any smaller off shoots that had touched and shot roots into the ground of which there may be a few? plus a bush or 2...

might just be a late night brain fart so pm in the near future  ,-)

 

I have roof racks too

 

and a tow ball

 

hmmm

 

and yeah, good luck with the Sale

Two weeks or less and ill see how I'm going, Able.
I'd have to see family near Miami Beach (Goldcoast, QLD), and Grassy Head (Midnorthcoast, NSW) on the way through. So you driving your Van would be best, as to not hold u up. Maybe getting like 20-50litre plant bags and semi potting our shit up would see them better traveling too (providing rootstock is attached). We can dig together, I have performance enhancers for the day (should our host allow, and if I drive).

Probably touch base in Sydney on our way up.  Drive separately.  Stop at Grassy (my joint) if you need to piss and shit and eat and medicate,  then continue north on our venture (another 5ish hrs).

I guess its free reign till then.
Epic fkn vines!  good luck ladies and gents.

P.S. Three Brother Mountains (Acacia Courtii native microclimate) is on our way. A little bo-peed and a quick seed collection sesh might be cool?

Adding in some photos of the vastness of the vines which I've cut back every year except this one, you can tell what is caapi and what is Liquid Amber tre due to the season and Amber is changing colours and dropping her leaves, kept warm by miss caapi though. I have that much 10 year old HBWR vine growing around here that every time someone spits on the ground up pops amother seedling...well it rained for 5mins 4 days agao and looks like this still happens....so other photos will show these plants...

 

Catha Edulis (Prolific flower/seeder NL khat...may have been from "planthelper' originally but through another member who sent seed to me.

HBWR - Seedlings and scour the earth and seed will be there I'm sure.

Voacanga Africana over Six feet but

Psychotria Nexus and a Viridis

There is also a third var of Caapi that originated in a mountainous/colder climate and even though it doesn't have the best position, it is virtually a bonsai and it has been in my posession for 10 years...sure as shit...it's still there. The guy that some of these plants came from died of certain overconsumptions and a broken heart years ago....he spread everything ethno amongst our beloved community for the years I knew him and he had been doing so since the inception this net community Of net communities alright some plant porn in the dawn.....Phot o #1478 needs to rotated 90deg to the vierwe right - that tree is well above power lines....everything green on that tree is Caapi...............#1478,#1473#1474 Caapi....#1470, #1469 #1467 is the Other ViNE #1453 - YEP STILL GOT PSYCHOT.#1455 - LOOKING UP THROUGH THE CAAPI UP #1456 INCH THICK TRUNK ON THE P. NEXUS #1457 is the Voacanga Africana which has it's tallest branch above 6 feet but needs nursing back to it's former glory -#1458 A. Voacanga trunk, #1459 is over a thick wrist sized base of one of the HBWR that has climbed mt Amber and topped out many times. #1461 is a tower Khat, #1462 is the leg she stands on. #1463 is the native Eroxthylum sp and littered on the ground behind her are HBWR seeds and seedlings. #1472 look how she reaches for the stars/postwoman.

( THEY GET TO PICK AND CHOOSE AND DIG UP THE OTHER PLANTS IF THEY ARE STILL HERE) PM ME FOR CONTACT DETAILS IF YOU HAVE AN URGENT REQUEST COS I'M OFTEN RECORDING/MIXING AUDIO WITH MY CANS ON IN THIS STUDIO AND I'LL FORGET TO CHECK A  WEBPAGE BUT I CAN SEE THE SCREEN OF MY LANDLINE FLASHING EASILY ENOUGH.

OK FOLKS GAME ON...........PM Me for a chat, feel free..................There is actually still a few meters of tasty looking Roots some over an inch thick still in the ground (I've never done root cuttings of caapi but I wouldn't be at all surprised that if they were left there I'd have shoots) but either way the 1.3 meter long root sitting across my lap would medicinally see me through plenty a journey I imagine. Call in ASAP and take 6billion cuttings while the vines are still green and full of life....there's heaps of decent sized vine hanging down from whatever other plants supported it.....Aya for days. The roots are really quite easy to get at as I've softened the ground even more with moisture, Theres still a 90cm length of thick vine coiled into the chain link fence that I do not mind cutting (Fence) if need be. 

1km of HBWR (1 of 3 vines is two wrists thick at the base) with fresh and unripe seed all over it (Walking over to the vine planted about 400 of them, the little rain we had means seedlings are coming up everywhere)

5-6 HBWR Seedlings and as much seed as you can scoop up...the neighbour usually has a heap of seedlings he's unlikely to miss.

1 x 8foot Khat Tree (Double Trunked)

1 x 9Foot Khat Tree (Double Trunked) Both always been prolific flower/seeders

1 x 7+Foot Eroxthylum sp Tree

3 x Psychotria Nexus Bushes with base trunks inches thick, maybe 4-5 foot tall

1 x 30cm Psychotria Viridis

1 x B. Caapi "Ourinhos" plant (Makes me think it has grown from a root cutting cos its finger thin about a  few foot away from where a 3-4 finger thick vine was

Meters of thick CAAPI ROOTS AND PLENTY OF VINE, Viable cuttings of the Vine could still be made by the million (Roots are Rich and Beautifully yellow upon initial cut before oxidization) B. Caapi roots.

7 x 5foot+ Tall Khat Plants that basically form a Hedge - I WAS GOING TO KEEP THESE SIMPLY FOR PRESENTATION AS MY HOME GOES TO MARKET BUT MAYBE I CAN BE BRIBED, MY CAR REQUIRES A NEW FUCKING FUEL PUMP NOW!!!

1 x 5Foot Tall Voacanga Africana that needs a little TLC

 

8foot Khat  8 Foot Double Trunk KHAT

 

7+Foot Eroxythylum SpDSC_1588.thumb.JPG.851f8b7b2a110276cb3e7588b2226855.JPGDSC_1606.thumb.JPG.e98a5731c88ba41121f408b51b657790.JPG

Hey Folks,

 

Thank you to everyone who has messaged me and helped me get plants to good homes, I apologise to those of you I missed as you were driving through, my health is shite but I've come up for air and to let you know THERE IS STILL PLENTY AVAILABLE. These trees and plants are for COMPLETE REMOVAL from my property all are around 10 years old. Sadly I am asking for Cash donations but I'm not asking for top dollar by any means, I'll be happy to pay some bills and ensure these plants get to people who care rather than get destroyed. The property is in one of the highest demand suburbs in Brisbane for todays "Well to Do's" wishing to build their dream homes...the block will be leveled and my trees taken to the dump, F&ck THAT!! Make me an offer, feel free to think in package deals, Here's what's left...

 

1. Narrow Leaf KHAT tree's - 6(plus)x 5foot Tall Trees-----DSC_1483.JPG.69fb9ee5e77aa01aaf64b3fe226326bc.thumb.JPG.aa2660c6489b6ed0f2c95fae8f8928c3.JPG

 

 

2. Psychotria Nexus Bushes - 3 x 3 Foot Bushes ---------DSC_1652.JPG.cb98466038f114564f908d83d78a76a0.thumb.JPG.db5a55c74498ba1fa2be027196e9b1d3.JPG

 

3. B. Caapi - 6+ meters of thick 10yr old (Potent) Roots easily removed Heaps of photos in the post above

4. B Caapi - Endless amounts of Vine remain either in a pile or up the trees they were supported by (Still look firm despite the root mass being removed 5 days ago)

5. Narrow Leaf KHAT (C. Edulis) - 2 x 8-9 Foot Trees ------- Pictured above

6. Eroxthylum. SP - 6 foot Tree - pictured above

7. HBWR - Seedlings, Ripe and Ripening seeds on 2 x 10 Year old vines.

8. 1 x B. Caapi Vine (Thick as middle finger).....I found this growing about 3 feet away from the Large Ourinhos, all my Caapi were planted at the same time over 10 years ago so..makes me wonder about root cuttings...

Hey! I would hate to see those thrown away!

Is there a community garden in your area you can store them while you move? :)

Mate good on ya for doing this. I foolishly left my last medicine and ethno garden, thinking the new owners would benefit (they seemed to like the idea). Only to drive by 2 weeks later to see the entire site cleared to plant lawn. Still kicking my self.

Hi Crop,

 

Yeah mate it sux, The main buyers in this area are either Big Business/investors (Keep property, rent free to managers, level block and re-sell in 2-3yrs), Owner builders (20% of them will renovate, 80% level the block), wealthier dream homers 95% level block, 5% realize the worth of a solid timber 1950's home and work with it but they are still going to landscape........I've done well from the investment that I had never planned to sell, but mental and physical health force decisions unfortunately. I'm proud of the Ethno community in this country, no better group of like enough minded individuals who will throw themselves in front of an angry mob to save a plant irrespective of ridiculous plant laws.....good people, my kind.

 

TheMooseZeus,

 

Mate I'll be leaving them at door steps like a baby after a knock on the orphanage door before I let them be dumped. If need be once I have the money from the sale of the property I'll post my address with a mud map of plant position for would be Guerilla Gardeners. The HBWR is my gift to the property along with other volunteers which are mostly Tomatoes and Bok/Pak choi despite my love of food farming perishing with my health some 3 yrs ago the little beauties still pop up from time to time...

 

SK
