    What's on your agenda today?

    What's on your agenda today?! So... I dusted off my gardening gloves today after a fairly long hiatus and innumerable hours spent doing 'other things', and finally got around to re-potting my neglected Lophs and my Nana's African Violet... I'm hoping they'll take to their new environment which is not ideal, but a damn sight better than their previous habitat! What's your plans for the coming spring season? What seeds are you sowing? What fruits are you picking? What whacky wild and wonderful new garden bed are you bringing to life?!

    What's on your agenda today?

    That is the million dollar question haha, I believe I got the clumping kind as I can't imagine I would have purchased the running kind, but I've been unable to remember where i got them from. If you ping me your addy I have half a dozen seeds left I can send you, and you can try them out.

    What's on your agenda today?

    Gorgeous specimen @SayN! I hope you put some star pickets or something (nails) in the spot to give the postman a surprise on the next visit! :-) Still a little chilly here for chilli's but I'll probably sprout some on the kitchen windowsill soon. Did you replant the Pach's? I've left a few that toppled, and once they sprout roots out the sides they go right off!

    Nice! Be great to see some shots of your grafts @fyzygy, what are you using as rootstock? I need to pot out some Black Bamboo I grew from seed... apparently some bamboo only set seed every 100 years or so!

    What's on your agenda today?

    Here's some cactus Pr0n... There is much tending and re-potting to do... I think I'll pop some in the ground this year, I've been meaning to do that for the last 8-9 years, and wishing I had, but there's no time like the present right?

    What is your least favourite plant?

    Roses: They seduce you with their vibrant colours, sensual smells, and beautiful petals, then shred you like a cheese grater when you cuddle them...

    Hi all, been offline for a few years, glad to see you're all still here! I'm up for a meet-up - my March is cactus, but April/May/June is good :-)

    Giant pumpkin contest!!

    Well, nothin' like the temptation of a growing contest to entice me back after a few years! I'm in, sounds fun. I may have some giant sunflower seeds somewhere (rattles and clanks about in the dark recesses of the cupboard...)

    Laminar Flow Hood on G-tree

    Hi All, I was perusing G-tree and found this ad for a flow hood - figured someone in Brisbane might be interested, I have spoken to Kate and since this item needs to go ASAP she is willing to drop the price to $400. Seems like a good price for what it is. She also has larger ones for sale. http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/heathwood/miscellaneous-goods/single-laminar-flow-cabinet-for-sale/1102890511

    Laminar Flow Hood on G-tree

    I believe the unit has now sold but there are a few larger ones left. Mimzy you are correct - the filter alone would be nearly $400 - When I spoke to Kate she assured me that although the machine hadn't been used for quite some time, it was well taken care of, serviced and stored well I wish I was in Brisbane too! Even a small square box type flow hood seems to be $400 plus - to get a pro unit like this one, if you have the space, would be a fantastic addition to any mad scientists lair. I have an opportunity to do some tissue culture for a large wholesale nursery, so a more dedicated standalone unit with a bit of space like this one would have been perfect. Ah well, someone got a good deal i guess => back to the search engine!

    electric timer with multiple on/off per day

    Here's an instructable that can handle 6 alarms and control 7 devices based on Arduino... http://www.instructables.com/id/Arduino-multiple-timer-Day-based-and-alarm-based/ Although you may not make your own shields, the code alone for this project would be worth a look... If you search for home automation using Arduino you're likely to find something that suits your needs. Home automation is controlling 240v devices with timers/switches/events so if you're going the Arduino route, I would start here, on the backs of others that have done the trial and error already.

    electric timer with multiple on/off per day

    I use this one - Its easy to set up and works well: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Digital-Temperature-Humidity-Controller-with-Relay-Output-72x72-Celcius-/381383334023?hash=item58cc37d887:g:WH4AAOSwTapV5cIo If you search for 'humiture controller' you'll find dozens of them.
  19. I've got some on the windowsill in bag now, been there for about 2 weeks, theres no mould, but no action yet either... Do they need light? What temperature are you keeping them at?
  20. Sounds very similar to electrolytic rust removal - and if you use the search engine to find "electrolytic rust removal power supply" you'll find some fabulous circuits for voltage/current control. I have a 15A 10-15v pwm DC motor speed controller that operates at 30khz - cost $10 off ebay and works a treat as a 12v variable amperage power supply. Here's one thats 6-90v 15A that would do the job: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/6V-90V-15A-Pulse-Width-PWM-DC-Motor-Speed-Controller-Switch-/261888617437?hash=item3cf9c72bdd:g:k8MAAOSwv0tVUdWO

    Spiritual purging

    I think about it like Echinacea, you put it into your body and it irritates your immune system. While your immune system is active it also attacks other foreign substances in your system. So: Drink a toxin, and purge out that toxin plus other toxins with it.

    Leafy greens that bugs don't eat...

    Brahmi - don't see many bugs on my brahmi plants. Edit: pretty small leafy greens though Noticed a definite decrease in bugs all round by only watering in the morning - watering at night = bugs delight!
  23. Slipping into a lucid dream without first going to sleep - it's the strangest sensation, it's happened to me 5 times now. The first time, it felt like my body was being pulled off me, a tingling but extreme deep relaxation, like the 'piddle jiggle' feeling but it keeps going and gets deeper - then it felt like a railway train had just passed my head and I felt i was in an earthquake, shuddering and shaking - then poof, complete loss of contact with any bodily sensation and a full lucid dream unfolded. Later I've come to realize that I'm going into sleep paralysis whilst still awake - and now, instead of my consciousness fighting like crazy to keep a hold of my body, I let the feeling wave over me and repeat 'stay awake, stay awake' - and whallah - it happened 2 nights ago and with my eyes wide open, as heavy as a rock, in the dim light of my bedroom, I watched reality tinsel away like a thin sheet and the dream took over - I even managed to focus on one then the other for about 20 seconds before letting go and being in full lucid dream state - it's the most weird feeling ever for your body to disappear on you and watch the paper thin reality fade away to be replaced by a dream.

    fruit and nuts

    Nice work Olive - Have you tried yoga or tai chi? They are very balancing habits to get into, and can often help maintain a state of balance after a bumpy ride. Yoga Nidra has been helpful for me. Through this practice i have been able to identify, and 're-wire' some subconscious or underlying issues that caused less than ideal behaviors in my waking state. Be mindful of jumping out of the frying pan and into the fire with pharmaceutical panaceas such as antidepressants and anti psychotics. They do serve a purpose in the short term if they are managed correctly, but long term they seem to be counter productive. They have their place, but if you can manage with a healthy lifestyle/counselling/yoga/taichi/excercise etc then you'll find firmer ground beneath your feet than with a chemical crutch. Well done - It takes a lot of effort to do what you've done, and even more to share the experience with others. Hats off to you and hand shakes all round.
