Just wondering if anyone has info. on Psychotria ioniceroides. It's native to Eastern Australia, probably just Queensland and NSW but I don't know for sure.
Any information or experience with this plant would be appreciated. I'll try to upload a photo, good looking plant but not sure of efficacy as ethno.

Do you mean Psychotria loniceroides ?

Oops, that is what I meant. I've heard it is difficult to grow from cuttings but I have one that seems to have taken.
Was thinking it might be something else.

Okay, that's why I couldn't find info from a search, thanks. So essentially there is little pharmacological activity?
I would be interested to hear of any good reports.

I have a few cutting grown P. loniceroides... They seem to do pretty well. Germination is really good too..

A lovely addition to any subtropical native garden..
