    Cacti issues (heat?)

    They almost always come good. I've cooked loads of em, and they outgrow it pretty quickly, given some TLC.

    It's not something you should drink daily if you value your tooth enamel.

    Smart oceans

    I am all for Elon and Jeff to get in a rocket and go to Mars. Coming back? Not so much!

    Smart oceans

    Just because they're being marketed doesn't mean they are commercially viable or attractive. That distinction should be made.

    Smart oceans

    I wouldn't worry too much, I can't see this happening. The costs to install and maintain would be astronomical, and the applications would be so limited as to be useless. Another red herring. (Pun intended)

    Print wanted

    Anyone got a fresh print - seeking one for my buddy. It's his first attempt at microscopy so something suitable would be great.

    Commercial Importation of Kava

    Not sure what I was expecting but at $200/kg for powdered kava, it's no cheaper than the grey market stuff available now. It would want to be some seriously good waqa.

    Don't try this at home ...

    I heard about this case, and have to wonder why anyone would try this. I guess he was in a very bad place to begin with. I've also heard of a recent trend towards "boofing" various things like cactus tea. Which is also a very bad idea, maybe slightly less dangerous than IV injection, but nonetheless, bypassing the various filters and systems the body has in place to avoid such pathogens can end very badly.
  10. Well, apparently anything with white petals and purple spots is a "Tasmanian" according to the punters on the SAB Facebook page haha! (Don't get me started!) In all seriousness though, unless you have certified seeds from a reputable source, where there was no chance of interbreeding, nobody knows. They hybridise at the drop of a hat. You can take a stab at some fairly identifiable ones like danish flag, hens and chickens, pink peony etc. But anything else is a guess at best.

  12. Pretty unlikely to to be Galania given how hard the seeds are to come by!
  13. They're somniferum, unspecified variety.
