    Psychotria alba seedling giveaway

    id love some please
  3. So as promised elsewhere, I have some small seedlings (2-4 pairs of leaves/ 10cm tall) from Bardo's seed giveaway last year. Sorry no pics yet. They could have been bigger but they take 6 months to germinate and have been growing in the takeaway container I germinated them in. That said they are healthy looking and will take off this spring if given some TLC. Please research their growing requirements before accepting the offer. Seedlings will be sent bare rooted, in damp coir, at my leisure (when I get a spare second) NOT TO WA, TAS or OUTSIDE AUSTRALIA, sorry. No payment required, but please consider donating a few dollarydoos to site server costs. First 5 to comment here and PM me their address get the goods. Have at it.

    advice needed please

    Have been using de for a while, works best when dry after watering wait at least a day b4 applying, I use a shaker that is for icing sugar to apply it, and give each pot a dusting a couple of days after each watering its very fine and disappears when you water. Cheapest place to get it is one of those big pet warehouses they sell it as a flea controller for kennels. You can also cook egg shells and crunch them up then top dress with them for fungus gnats

    Plant Hardiness Spreadsheet

    Hey guys, I've been bored at work so I decided to put together a spreadsheet listing frost/cold hardiness for the most commonly discussed Ethnobotanical plants on SAB Thought I would share it here in-case it's useful to anyone else. The info was gathered from and cross referenced using multiple online sources and personal reports. Obviously there are always abnormalities and outliers, but might be helpful as a guide This is by no means a comprehensive list and still a work in progress. I also haven't included cacti. I may get around to that eventually. My cacti have all been exposed to frosts and -6c temps and survived so I don't think it's as pertinent. If anyone has any first hand experience that differs from what's listed, or any others I should add to the list, feel free to chime in! Plant Hardiness.xlsx

    Life would succ without you.... free seeds

    My life would succ without having a garden full of plants that I get to see grow and thrive right before my eyes, to remind me how special and different all life is! especially seeing as I got most of them from members of this forum
  9. Inspired by something my sister gave to me to give to my mum... Yep, it would succ without you, friends, family, caring kind people and supportive people I've met through SAB. So I've been sowing succulent seeds and got some free spares - Delosperma bosseranum x 2 significant quantities - Mesembryanthemum crystallinum (50 seeds) x 2 I've checked viability for both and they've germinated fine on the heat mat for me If you want a pack of each sent to sow, the first two people to tell me what their life would succ without in this thread get free seeds Sow with intent to manifest a kinder, more loving world Soon I'll hopefully have "life would succ without you starter packs of plants" to give to people of succulents I've known and loved In case no one has said it to you today and you're feeling down:

  11. ****this is propably gonna be an experimental and drunkey way to blow some steam - I have done it before, to open up in a psychoanalytical way in SAB crowd. cheers to all the old- timers here. ****** I am not sure where exactly this starts for me. But I suppose that it begins when I realise the world is full of shit. For example I remember me praying to god, lol, honestly, cool stuff.. I am amazed I remember. a hardline atheist would not tell you - he would supress and forget. not me. I cant cheat. If you become an atheist in ~12 like me, you have to make up a different system of thought.. Like Bukowski said, us atheists - and I say especially us early bloom atheists - we have to answer the "big questions" outselves, as there is none metaphysical reality except the individual reality for the radical atheist.. Yeah It propably started with atheism- or something aroung there.. My lawyer dad said I should become a lawer and he had various tricks to escape when I argued passionately aboutr a subject. Also in the same time, or a bit later , I was regarded a raver in my school. I had by then made a scheme to create an image to project to the school enviroment.. I was the kid that drew rave symbols with modelist paint on his Doc Martens and had a generally cool but awkward presence... I realise now I realised from early on that if you act in a strange way but support it, or in some way, justify it, then you have got your audience, peoples attention... atheism was propably a full time job for me back at some point .. I was a shy boy. especially around girls and even more if I liked them... my debating skills that I never stopped developing was the ever present path of what it was for me to become such a character... ~13 then... when all of your friends in the neibourhood are christian believers and you are a great rhetor, then I think I only did the obvious, used my skills to challenge the existence of god and by that I grew my first bit of social confidence . And I did a fucking good job right there 13 year old with kids of the same age with me - without ever reading a debunking-encyclopedia of stupid scientifists.. me and simple logic arguements.. so there I am realising that I can be the center of attention, even with lots of girls present, when I took on a debate about the presence of god! This forms a base of how you can provoke reactions from somebody if you challenge some soft spot of his. I realised people had soft spots. Religion was on of them... Later still a teenager I made an "old looking voodoo box" and planted it in a spot in the neibourhood so the religious grannies found it and be freeked.. it happened.. lots of gossip - the materials ended up to the local priest supposedly to exorcise them !! All these hapen while I have no fucking idea of what dada, surrealism, situationists are, I am 14 year old but I have developed a style which changes as I am teenager. Through rave music I have developed a taste for dark and the weird even back there. I had also developed an interest in psychoactive substances and mainly ecstacy, as the rave songs I was listening to were refering to this kind of shit. So I am at a point where I am more interested in ecstasy at 14 than pot and nowhere near to really try and find or get to it.. It was later at 17 y.o. when I first smoked pot. I never realised how this controlled burst offensive manipulation system is a life long work, and how it developed as a defense to my social shyness... I am 39 now and only the recent years I came to untwirl it. It was never a conscious decision to be cynic and badass rhetor and to debate people so as they let up their defences... But it fucking happened.. So gradually I am becoming the most perfect trolling machine long before it was an internet term. after 15 I am startin having the first complaints I was too much sarcastic -from my friends. This never stopped. I talked a lot with my friends but as some points I was harsh and cynic bastard.. Maybe I was starting to get tired of bitching about how unfair life was to people that didnt do anything to try to change it.... I never paid really attention to the people arround me telling me about me being sometimes very rude offensive. I knew I was - I suppose I thought I was mostly right to be like that... I was a person people - my friends- knew they could come to me and talk... A couple years ago a long time friend , told me "man, watch it , you might get beaten by some random guy you argue" and I told him " its lots more possible to get beaten by someone I know" .. the same guy, my friend, some years ago, in a gathering, in a drunk mode, he said to me: you know whats cool about you ?? you might be nuts and weird yourself, but you're the dude that anyone can come and start a serious conversation about anything... I have propably lost this over the years.. I am so fiercefully agressive, that people are scared of me. A couple years ago I made some jokes about it - but in the present I am not finding this very funny: people being scared of you because of what might come out of your mouth... It might be 'funny' because this kind of behaviour is causing situations to happen, and I knew I am a humanist and only argued about stuff, so I did not think it was such a big of a problem - especially when it was the characteristic that was a sceleton of my growing character... and, why hide it, it was one of the main internal powers that made me "cool" . it was real , I owned it, and it made an impact on people so why the heck would I think it is a bad thing ? fast forward to present, I have interpreted this shis in many ways, including my natal astrological chart - I always missed the long time friends that slowly were becoming more distant to me due to this behaviour and my whole behvariour - but I was well awere I knew about it , some had warned, I was aware that friends can become more distant for no particular reason - so there you go I had none to blame from my self for my friends gradually getting away.. I was not particularly bitter though - because I knew they all had a point! I didnt think I was right in the harsh behaviour. I just developed a thing for completely rejecting the notion of "remorse".. its propably a radical atheist thing. I never believed in it and I still think like that. remorse is a theological term and a radical atheist cannot pay attention to this shit. the whole context of remorse never made sense and it doesnt make sense for a hard atheist. you cannot turn the time back except from these awesome timeline-shift sci-fi movies, hehehe... I guess I had a notion for getting things to the extreme - my parents were always mild people, my mom very critical of her mom, a strange suicide hidden also in the mom part of the family that only one seemed to care about when I learnt it was a suicide... A good, suburban lets say home from southern greece... my father is a romantic and very sensitive guy.. later - ratehr recently I learnt we have a cultivation thing in the family tree... cant imaging why my parents didnt tell me earlier, not even when I started to try to become a plant grower part- time. Things is - I am soon becoming 40, this sagittarius x sagitarius , I am still the same deal. Its not really important when I had my psychedelic awakening and epiphanies but the start was done in around 20 y.o. I will always remember when I returned home after the first blotter trip I had .. It had gone bad for 3/5 of the company, half a blotter each, that must have been super potency, 3 of us had a bad trip and us 2 that were into it thought it was pretty strong, (of course the bad trip and mood of the other 3 affected us when were were all 5 together in the tali of the experience) ... I returned to my hometown and was somewhat uptight- I remember how we ate with bg apetite, and talked with my parents that day, this hadnt happened ever before, to talk for so long in the mature way...before we had much conflict , we could not make a decent dialogue - maybe I was too much of a punk in the mentality??? my first acid use then is a bookmark for the type of communication I had with my parents, I reguarly shared almost all kinds of stuff, except the overly obcsene... I can say that other things might play a role in such a thing, but that 1st one time, yeah, it had one definate good result: it made me wanna communicate with my parents.. perhaps other people as well.. Some people talk about large doses - some people have told me in past - in this forum that I am a pussy that I didnt take enough. well I nver believed in "if in doubt double the dose" because it depends on the type of doubt.. I really believe in the "if you get the message , hang up" thing, though ... I think I have reached the end of this ramble... but I will end it aboslutely egocentric. WIth the danger of being taken as a manic shcizophrenic I really thing I am a unique individual in a series of ways I will try to express it.. please remember that my natal chart is full of fire signs, aries, leo, and of course sagittarius... also scorpio, pisces, virgo, carpicorn... 0. I was born mid/low class, and my life had been quite fine. Contrary to lots or most of my friends to want to try psychoactives, I was not en escapist. It did not ever feel that I took drugs to cope with reality.. it was mosty curiocity. when we did start to smoke pot, their escapism both annoyed me and affected me negatively. When we had a wonderful experience last day, all friends smoking, the next they they were bitching "we dont have any pot today, damn, etc" . I was not like that . But it gets to you after some time... that how laws fuck up the intake of a perfectly safe plant compound. .. by making illegal and a myth... 1. its unique I think, I at 40 tend to be the same strange- the same kind of strange you were younger only more experienced - I dont seem to have changed - it seems I am still a punk, in the "punk - being yrself" vain of course, as I was never a 'proper' dressed punk. its not really usual to have such a strong sense of honesty and cynicism above all , and then delve in philosophical subjects even in the most extreme examples of huma behaviour. I am not the same kid that first watched Hellraiser II at 14 with the volume almost at 0 because because I was fucking blown by what I was seeing - but I had to watch it! Remember my parents were the types that talked polite and shyed away from most controversy - my dad was more a people's guy though , I copied - I think several phrases he said to people in restaurants and cafes. what I am trying to say is that I am the same kid I was in 15, the dude at 20, 21, 22, 25, 28, 32, 36, and now yeah... only now I know a lot of stuff I didnt know before... stuff have happened.... but I am the exact continuity of what I was before.. A fucking curious kid that ecentually wanted to learn about it all. yeah yeah... I dont have a girlfriend these days nor a kid. so I am relatively free. 2. I had it in my mind for years , that becoming a homo universalis, that is a person with a greater encyclopedian knowledge that is not limited to a single gnostic clade.. I didnt really tried to become that , I only thought that indeed this is the most awesome thing to be, to make an all-around worldview. There's an an awesome saying "careful where you look to, because you are going to go where you look" or something like that.. Well it seems that becoming a homo- universalis was not an easy thing to do - if you try to do it in philosophy, I mean to find the core of it all, it is so fucking diffucult- especially if you have not a lot of life experience! but I tried it and was fierceful... So I was always bold about stuff I was into , and I am really thinking I am really fucking close to what you would call a H.u. - and I am only 39, huh?? heheh man, lots of egoism in my personallity, so glad I am super sagittarius so I can be as sarcastic I want to my own egoism. I dont think I am great. I think I am a great philosopher! thats my philosophical motto - because most people think that philosophy is knowing history of philosophy - philosophy for me is loving to getting to know. being curious about stuff.. really wanting to know... and - to me- philosophy is not something you read, but its something you do so yeah, I think being or tending to be a homo universalis means you really want to know about how things work. all around. not only a single field 3. I am so fucking honest - pathologically honest. There must be something into it. I mean biological.. I mean body giving me chemical gifts because I persue knowledge - or maybe its just egotistical make belief that flows the chimical - point is, honesty is something I believe... I dont believe in much else... Most people dont care about truth, but some of us rare ones might be truth fetischists . You might think -again - I am a schizo, but I quite believe I am one of the most fucking objective people on earth... the most objective you would ever get to know in an average life.... too fucking objective... so there it goes - where's the line?? and whats the score with those that still dont understand and promote big doses with classic psychedelics... ? it cant be done with psychedelics... psychs dont say shit - unfortunately, the people that should take it dont, so we are not doing much in the "cause" psychedelics - and life itself- is about an equilibrium. you dont take psychs for simple thrills, not if you're wise.. I have thought about all of these shit so much, and now I am interested and knowledgable about a bunch of other things thing is I am just an idiot and life is a path its the only one!! and the point is you must be able to hold to moments. life is moments lucidity, consciousness, etc, big deal... what do you want? you want big enlightment?? start with your selves . dont be afraid to get to the thing that hurt you. things that hurt us shape us not everyone is ready to come up to the big debate about existence! then again I am a lucky one who speaks on the safe side. humanity is a circus. I am just a clown follow what is within and develop it build on what you're good at, then reflect ciao and peace

    Cabin Porn

    Not sure if anyone has posted this before, but this is an amazing story of Dick Proenneke who hand build his his cabin and lived in it in isolation for over 30 years in Alaska
  21. Last week
  22. Good to hear you can get some that have been sexed. Young males can quicky go from 1st crow to becoming aggresive towards the ladies if another male is also about. I got caught out once, bad news, they can be cruel. After plenty of discussion at the pet shop im pretty sure the breed is Coturnix japonica not chinesis as earlier stated. King is smaller than Jap and not as easy to handle. They shoot up like harrier jump jets!
  23. Very cool... "Scientists are constantly re-discovering knowledge that others have not had the time to publish and improving existing methods without the ability to share the improvements.

    Apparently DE needs to be on the surface of the soil to act as a deterrent to snails/slugs. You can also top dress with coarse river sand. Also for most insects I use neem oil, about 1 TBSP diluted into a 9L watering can. I rub the leaves (or use a soft brush for cacti) while showering the plants, then pour the rest into the soil around the plant to treat the roots. For infestations I do this twice a week, until it clears. Works for me against scale which is my only real pest. Cheers
