    So the cutting I purchased 14 months ago arrived yesterday, mailed after the post I made above, which I made after the seller created a new ad to sell more cuttings. So it turned up, better late than never. Thought I better acknowledge that. I also need to acknowledge that it took 14 months to get here, commitments made by the seller by way of update weren't met, I had to initiate all communications to obtain updates and some of my attempts at follow up went unanswered. OP - In relation to the illogical DM you sent me following my above post, if you truly believe you are the aggrieved party in this, then we occupy different realities. Thanks for eventually making good though!

    I think it's good to expose predatory and coercive behavior where it's occurring.

    Well, if there was ever a year for pollination, this would be it. Show me a better display of flowers and I'll concede...

    Hi everyone, I have the honour and solemn duty of trying to organise the raffle for EGA this year. Yes the conference is finally back on this December! (for those that don't know https://www.entheogenesis.org/) The raffle is the main revenue source allowing Ega to break even on these special events. The raffle relies heavily on the generosity of the community to make those tickets so desirable. If any of you would like to support Ega in this way, plants, seeds, art, books, unique items, and enchanted swords or armour are all welcome! You can contact me directly or you can use the official form which is found at: https://www.entheogenesis.org/raffle-donations

    Edit: All gone I have several pups and tip cuts of san pedro - simply pay for postage. Happy to prune more too. PM me or, if you're new and can't PM (is this still a thing?), post a request below and I will PM you.

    Hey all. Im respectfully asking that you do not ask for seeds from my latest endeavour. If they were available I’d let it be known. At the risk of coming across as self important, selfish, dramatic or rude. It’s getting a bit much and would like it to stop if possible. I share my progress in hope of encouraging others to have a crack and hopefully in the future these seeds will be more abundant. I prob sound like a c*nt but hey, whatevs… Obviously there is no harm in asking so I’m simply asking that you don’t ask Kindest regards, Enjaytee.

    Hey guys well its time for me to let go of my collection of cacti they have suffered somewhat over the last couple years. Some have scarring or stunted in growth. I just dont have the time anymore for them. Willing to split it up for those that are willing to pay for postage. They are unidentified as I have lost the name tags over the years. Please post in the thread and i will pm those that are interested by end of the weekend

    I always feel like if it's taken me more than a few seconds to come up with a joke, nobody will find it funny any more and I don't say it. But you took 13 years and I still found it funny!

    My Botany professor once told me that pronunciation of plant names is rather subjective but I'd love to hear people's thoughts on the pronunciation of everyone's favourite tongue-twister 'pachanoi'. It seems there are 2 main schools of thought, Pack-annoy and Patch-annoy, but after looking a bit deeper into it I'm wondering if there's a third, more appropriate pronunciation that may be worth considering, and I'll offer some points for and against. To begin with, it's fairly common knowledge that the Latin binomial stems from the surname of a prominent Ecuadorian botanist Prof. Abelardo Pachano who assisted Britton and Rose in their famous Andean cacti expedition. https://troutsnotes.com/pachano/ So I guess from there it's important to consider how the surname 'Pachano' is pronounced to begin with, or more specifically how HE may have pronounced his own surname. I could be wrong here but from my 'research' it would seem that in South American Hispanic the surname is most often pronounced more like either: 'Puh-CHAN-no' or 'Pa-SHANNO' which would turn out a bit like pa'CHAN-noy when latinised. (not Patcha-noy/pat'char-noy) https://www.howtopronounce.com/spanish/pachano https://www.pronouncekiwi.com/Anibal Pachano -look for the Spanish versions near the bottom of the page. Here's some examples of spanish pronunciation I came across online. The Spanish examples are a bit of a surprise, but somehow sound kinda 'right' at the same time, well at least to my ears. https://www.pronouncekiwi.com/Echinopsis pachanoi https://www.howtopronounce.com/spanish/pachanoi Anyway, love to hear other people's takes on this, is it all just subjective to our own personal preferences or have we been saying pa'CHAN-noy wrong all this time? Seems like there are plenty of options for the pronunciation of the word pachanoi anyway... https://davesgarden.com/guides/botanary/search.php?search_text=pachanoi ttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gABWITatBgs https://www.shaman-australis.com/forum/index.php?/topic/36947-how-do-you-pronounce-this-plant-name-properly/&

    Sure it was a bit dramatised but this seemed more like an attempt to discredit dodgy players rather than psychedelics in general - Steve B, Paul L and the Australian trials got a decent wrap. Shit, even Dave N came out of this looking wholesome. The critiques of MMA, JP and MAPS were there way before the journalists were - 4C just made it shiny and brought it to a broader audience. For me, the main issue with the 4C episode was the lack of prohibition critique and overemphasis of medicalisation - but this is a limitation of most public discourse on psychedelics, cannabis and drugs in general. FYI I know of many people who were interviewed on and off the record - this might have been a hit piece but it did seem to be quite thoroughly researched. MMA's online meeting about the 4C episode last night was hilarious, and EGA is having Steve B and others on their webcast tonight (https://youtu.be/1JL_8Dd9a38) from 8pm to discuss the episode. Pure gold. This is like living an episode of the psychedelic Kardashians and while I admit I may be a trashbag I AM LOVING IT!

    From SAB and EGA Member Caine Barlow :-) If you enjoy EGA's content, we invite you to join us in-person or online for our upcoming Garden States Conference www.gardenstates.org Also See this Active Mushroom Video Playlist - Click Here If you are foraging for culinary or medicinal species being able to identify the fungi you find is essential - if you are foraging for fun, the journey becomes more meaningful knowing what you are looking at. This video is an introduction to various aspects of identification to help you identify the species of mushrooms that take your interest. From climate and habitat, to features of the mushroom, the cap, the gill attachment, and how to use a key. We also cover some Ethnomycological research literature and the best books for beginners in the field. Some species also have poisonous lookalikes that are important to be able to identify, knowing how to study and identify the distinguishing characteristics can help determine whether a fungus is suitable for your basket and your risotto or can be left alone growing in its habitat. -- Bio Caine Barlow -- Caine Barlow is a Mycologist and Fungi Educator based in Melbourne, Australia. He gives regular talks on mycology, fungi conservation, and teaches gourmet mushroom cultivation. He is a member of the Australian organisations Entheogenesis Australis, MYCOmmunity Applied Mycology, The Australian Psychedelic Society, and the Entheome Foundation. Caine started foraging for mushrooms in the early 1990's, and started cultivating gournet fungi in the mid 2000's. He did his Bachelor of Science at the University of Tasmania, and a Master of Science at the University of Melbourne where his research project was based around Conservation Mycology. In addition to fungi, Caine has had a long term interest in ethnobotany, ethnobotanical literature, and growing medicinal plants - in particular Cacti and Acacias. He writes for DoubleBlind and ThirdWave, is a “Trusted Identifier” on The Shroomery, and a moderator on many Facebook fungi groups. Caine posts regularly on his Instagram, @guerrillamycology, sharing adventures from cultivation, foraging, and ethnomycology, to interesting observations from his home lab.

    Found a couple. One I knew of close to Fernvale looks to have closed. There are one or two council reserves that free to access, but will have to put up with others close by and previous visitors rubbish. Have a look at these. https://wikicamps.com.au/site/Queensland/Campground/Allawah+Scout+Camp/279970 https://www.hipcamp.com/en-AU/queensland/weefarm-brisbane-river-camping/weefarm-brisbane-river-camping#group_size=1&adults=1 The first one is closer for those from Bris and has showers and toilets. Pretend camping really. Says it gets busy though but I reckon with our numbers we could claim a large section. The second one is a private place, up to 20 people I think it said, but only two vehicles? There is of course the camping area on the other side of where we catch up?

    Don't know where to start There's no way i can thank zelly enough This uy has been helping me a lot, even before I joined SAB. Once I joined SAB, zelly sent me a lot of seeds throughout the years without asking me anything in return. Since 2014, laws have changed a lot to the point that by late 2015 I can't receive any packages containing any plant material (seeds or cuttings). However, sometime during this period zelly offered to send me a cutting. So I asked for a PC cutting. He sent me a package but unfortunately customs refused to release it. A month later, a friend went to the states and zelly sent him a package. Fortunately, I received the package with a beautiful PC cutting that had flower buds. Last year, zelly contacted me and offered me some of his seeds. I told him that they won't pass customs. He sent me a lot of crosses in a very intelligent way and the arrived to my house safe and sound. I've never seen anyone get out his way and spends time in packaging and sending packages without asking anything in return. Zelly I appreciate your friendship more than I can express. Thank you my friend I planted the seeds 2 weeks ago and most of the crosses already started germinating and I'm very excited as if it was my first time. https://photos.app.goo.gl/TvTAuq6vwrJncXkx5
