    I've devoted quite a bit of time to researching succulents so would like to share the love. Can spare a couple (2) packs [Edit: one left] of free mixed succulents to the first couple of people interested (reply here and I'll get back to you) 1. Sceletium tortuosum cuttings 2. Sceletium emarcidum cuttings 3. Delosperma bosseranum mature plants 4. Delosperma echinatum cuttings 5. Trichodiadema stellatum cuttings 6. Lampranthus spectabilis (red) cuttings 7. Mesembryanthemum (Aptenia) cordifolium (purple) true form seedlings/cuttings. Can also include others including Aptenia haeckeliana if interested 8. maybe some Lampranthus aureus cutting No WA/TAS Something like this: Some of them can be a challenge to root up but see how you go. Only express interest if you're dedicated and keen please. I'll include postage.

    I noticed a mountain of gravel, crusher dust, road mix, sitting on the nature strip in Clarendon St, Coburg, Melbourne. With a cardboard sign saying "FREE" -- looks like leftovers from an Astroturf job. I filled a few buckets, but barely scratched the surface. Ute or truck would be the way to go. Just putting this out there for the benefit of my fellow sacred gardeners.

    A few mid-cut sections of this special scopulicola available, for anyone interested in propagating. I've never seen a scop with such pronounced horizontal strata, which definitely caught my eye (and I've already got quite a few scop varieties, including some real stunners). It's absolutely spineless to the touch, with deeply recessed aureoles. The mother is no longer, unfortunately. These chunks are fat and heavy (CD in last pic. for reference). PM if interested.

    Hi All, been a while since my last lurk around the forums I've got some Courtii seed available for purchase. $25 per 30+ seed pack. Or $1 each. Harvested January 2022 from seed grown trees in southern Tasmania. Message for inquiry ✌

    Dr. Charles Nichols on the topic courtesy of DrugScience https://www.drugscience.org.uk/podcast/78-are-psychedelics-anti-inflammatory-with-dr-charles-nichols/?fbclid=IwAR3O5cUndjtEl1kfm5ogYzMxUXNBOYemIA23P3mk8nDFZQGGXfAkEK79GPU Props to the OP for broaching this one. I have heard ridiculous anecdotal stories, around such conditions as MSA (Multiple Systems Atrophy) and how relatively low doses of psychedelics like mushrooms have transformed conditions and lives. I would wager that a raft of neurological issues could potentially benefit from some sort of dosing regime, with inflammation being one of the primary drivers leading to disfunction in the human organism. I'm not a doctor though, so what do I know?

    Commentors above have asked reasonable questions which, if the laws were based on reason/scientific evidence/and or harm, would ostensibly have reasonable answers. But that assumption, that drug law is somewhat based on logic, is naive in the extreme. This recent article examines how religion and racism form a large and foundational part of our drug laws globally, particularly when considering 'alien' drugs, like psychedelics and most 'New World' substances, bar cocaine. https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/full/10.1177/20503245231198526 Don't expect reason to be accepted when laws fly in the face of it

    I purchase 5 liter Bottle of Distilled Water from Coles and tonight I had the thought that they could possible make great bottles for bottle tek. Since they are ribbed, what if the ribs could be interlocked if cut the right way. So I cut off the tops of two bottles and after a little fiddling and cutting I managed to get two bottle to go together. The trick is to cut one bottle above a rib (rib in) and the second bottle below a rib (rib out) that way the bottle slide and lock into each other. I think it would make better tek then coke bottles because they are 5 liters not 2 liters they are taller, more volume, and they are square so more efficient use of space when you have multiples. The down side the lock in between the components is not as solid as the coke bottles and filled with 5 liters of soil I doubt that you could pick it from the top and have it hold together. Would do people think?

    I think we all know the root of existing drug laws isn’t reason, it’s power, specifically the misuse of it. In any case I think it important that folk understand the detail of what’s happening in the ACT. TGA and big Pharma, for sure, and the medical/psychiatric establishment too. But don’t forget the role the police play in all of this. IMO, the final version of these laws has their fingerprints all over it.

    @Alchemica thanks Not knowing what (R)-DOI is I found this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2,5-Dimethoxy-4-iodoamphetamine Which lead to this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tumor_necrosis_factor Interesting that very little is being spoken about this area of psychedelics. Inflammation from my limited understanding seems to be the causation and precursors to many disease process. And while we have steroids and NSAIDs this are symptomatic treatments. With serous health impacts like heart disease and stroke risk. Maybe it is because psychiatric conditions are now the number one cause of diseases and disability in society. OR maybe we suffer from the the mind body divide in the believe that the mind has nothing to do with the body. Or something else maybe. Everything is a big circle.

    I am uncertain where this would best be posted but I anticipate some people may enjoy this interview by Joey Santore. https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/how-ancient-glaciers-affect-peyote-a-conversation/id1458563601?i=1000625578250

    ^ Maybe this explains why the conservatives -- notorious racist and monotheist ideologues -- are trying to override the proposed ACT reforms at the Commonwealth level. Khat is another classic instance of (ethnoracial) demonisation of a "public health" (if not spiritual) menace. According to Rätsch, even the Bavarian "purity law," regulating the ingredients of beer, had a strong religious motivation -- to suppress paganism, as mentioned here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reinheitsgebot But let's not forget, the ever-present profit motive. Big Pharma (and its handmaiden, the TGA) always has a say in Oz drug policy, to be sure.

    i've seen one flower 4 years after transplanting from a cutting. it may be possible for them to flower even sooner than that. I didn't get any seeds though cause they are self-sterile

    It's appalling enough that drug manufacturers would submit not necessarily the safest, or most efficacious, but only the most lucrative products to the TGA for approval. It's doubly concerning that TGA operations are wholly contingent (i.e. financially dependent) on these (largely successful) industrial applications. It's triply concerning that this state of affairs (the full extent of the TGA's financial dependence) was disclosed only by means of a Freedom of Information request. This is industry self-regulation at its worst, with public health -- the ostensible goal of the TGA -- subservient to private economic interests. A sign of the times, to be sure. ARPANSA (self-regulatory lackey for the giant telecommunications sector) would be another case in point: a captive government agency masquerading as trustworthy guardian of public health and environmental safety. In an age of limitless profits, industrial self-regulation is a sick joke. But someone is laughing, all the way to the bank.

    I'll 2'nd oz cactus garden as a great guy with lots of excellent strains also there's a few guys in Qld on Ebay that are sending out some good stuff , I just got a 10cc PE6 from colisp that's colonizing nicely There is also a user by the name of josau-w2akz9arb from the same town might be the same guy but he has slightly different options with very good reviews. Strongly suggest reading up on some agar and LC TEK's then when you do get some in the mail you can expand it and not worry about how much you use!

    Just thought I would share, at my local nursery I scored a psycho0, yowie x PC and a SAB#2 X Fields. There were about 30, trichocereus pachanoi/bridgesii and possibly peruvianus. Just at my local mainstream nursery I had a chat with one of the staff and he said they were grown from seed by a local guy. For 10 bucks each, about 17cm tall. I cant seem to upload a photo but will try again. Probs a bit boring by y'all standards but it was cool to see at a regular public nursery and exciting to start rebuilding my collection. Never had any of these variations before! Also, thanks for having me, hope to be here fairly regularly, very keen to learn and make connections. I love trichocereus, lophs, anything rare and or medicinal etc. Cheerio

    yo yo yo-yo i had a difficult time hunting down reliable sources... then one day received an email from oz cactus garden - excellent all round - i started by germinating the spoof... but recently, i saw them on etsy for the LC link - maybe worth trying, if youre still looking... otherwise... PhillyGoldenTeacher youtube > discord > 'straya'mayte posse - i made a real bad first impression and was banned fairly quickly... which led me to oz cactus and bountiful fruits :D my first ever flush (Tidalwave)

    It's true. Oral swab tests only detect presence of THC itself, not metabolites. So bypassing any direct contact with your mouth eliminates testing risk this way. But if you vape or smoke as well, then there's no advantage. In NSW, a positive roadside test will result in a more thorough lab test, but you'll lose your licence roadside straight away. There is no legal defense even if you're on prescription.

    I agree totally, seeds are faster by a long shot. But I didn't know that yet! This was purely an experiment, I took cuttings of A. obtusifolia (a particularly vigorous specimen) and of A. phlebophylla (no weakling either) for comparison. The goal was to be able to clone A. phlebophylla, an endangered species. I learned a few things along the way. 1. it takes time - from late summer to the beginning of the next 2. aeration of root zone produces speedier results 3. be gentle when hardening off (I lost more than a few to afternoon sun) 4. A. phlebophylla seems quite resistant to this method of propagation, as reported by others Propagating acacias via cutting, rather than seed, is recommended where hybridisation is likely to have occurred (e.g. suburbia) but true-to-type plants are required.
