    Grafts -Photos & Updates

    These scions came from a weird little crest. I removed this bit as it was starting to grow into the ground, rooted it and then grafted it on. Hopefully goes funky again

  6. Went with what are probably the most common 5. Feel free to add more below and fill in dot points etc Hylocereus Pros: Vigorous growth Quick to propagate Cons: Rots easier than other stocks Cold-dormant Smaller grafting area Can deform scion or over produce offsets Myrtillocactus Pros: Longevity Large grafting area Cons: Average growth speed (could be a pro, scion dependent) Slow to propagate (striking roots) Pachanoi Pros: Easy to graft onto Easy to handle Longevity Can handle heavy scions Good for slab grafting Large grafting area Cons: Not suited to small seedlings Thirsty Pereskiopsis Pros: Suited to small seedlings Vigorous growth Impale grafting Can handle little or lots of water Cons: Constantly offsets Can't handle heavy offsets unless staked Covered in glochids Selenicereus Pros: Quick to propagate Easy to handle Vigorous growth Cons: Similar cons to Hylocereus or Pereskiopsis

    What did you do in your sacred garden today?

    After years of growing and topping chilli plants, decided I'd give it a whirl on some Datura seedlings. Always had bigger yields, around 2x more pods over the course of a season. 3 topped, 3 not. Updates soon Put this frosty pink in the ground. Threw some slow release fert in the hole and gave it a good watering. Going to lay down some weed mat too Cut these Scop x Super Pedro pups off. I've made 195 tip cuts of pereskiopsis in the last 2 weeks. Season goal is 700 pieces. Not usable size, just tips with roots to grow for the season after. Pricked out some obtusifolia sprouts. Got some more Gastrolobium spp sprouting now too Cut 12 more bits of pach for grafting stock.
  9. https://www.springer.com/gp/book/9783642361715 Psychopharmacology is the study of the effects of psychoactive drugs on the functioning of the central nervous system at all levels of analysis, thus embracing cognition, behavior, psychological states, neurophysiology, neurochemistry, gene expression, and molecular biology. It includes, as an integral part of its domain, the interaction of environmental and genetic factors with psychoactive drug action, the medicinal and social uses of drugs, and the misuse and abuse of psychoactive substances. The aim of this comprehensive encyclopedia is to provide detailed information on psychopharmacology and its sub-disciplines, such as clinical psychopharmacology, molecular neuropsychopharmacology, behavioral pharmacology in laboratory animals, preclinical psychopharmacology, and human experimental psychopharmacology. The wide-ranging entries in the Encyclopedia of Psychopharmacology are written by leading experts drawn from a broad diversity of backgrounds and areas of specialization. The entries, comprehensive but succinct, provide basic and clinical scientists in academia, as well as industry, with the most important and relevant information on recent developments in psychopharmacology and its closely allied disciplines. The essential information about the field contained in these entries is readily accessible to clinicians, scholars, students, teachers, and interested laypeople Springer.Encyclopedia.of.Psychopharmacology.Second.Edition.pdf

    Weird little Loph

    Looks like it has terminated I'd probably ditch that soil in exchange for a mineral mix also. That's a lot of organics right there

    Looking for straight razors

    Doing a Taylor Witness at the moment. Just cleaning up the blade. Going to give it that brushed stainless look and then do new handles from acacia acuminata with brass fittings and pins.

  20. Up potted a bunch of seedlings (10-15cm) yesterday and today to pots only 1 size up instead of final pot size. Most seedlings had some of their root mass removed (re fibrous stuff but NOT the main taproot). Is this a practice that many do or is it a case of just get bigger pots? Couldn't find much info on cacti root pruning. Contemplating doing this to all the stock which have grafts on top so I can go to the next forestry tube size and continue to use the handy dandy pot trays I have Can see it being a bonus to stop roots of certain spp (ario, astro etc) rotting as easily? Thoughts/suggestions
  21. Started making more BAP mix lately to use on my plants. At and since the last Perth SAB meet I have picked up a few crest revert bits (TPM x N1, TPQC x TPM) Chatting to someone recently has said that using BAP on crests will only throw reverts and these pups will not crest again (also a thread on shroomery but there is only a handful of replies). What is your experience on that? I have hit a number of crests (whole and ones that have been cut for graft scions) with BAP, noted the # of areoles and which specimens. I will keep this thread updated BAP: 19/10/2018: (Peru x Juuls) x TPM - 4 areoles Sharxx Blue x TPM - 4 areoles TPC x Juuls (grafted scion) - 3 areoles TPC x Juuls (mother plant cut for scions) - 2 areoles (this specimen already has 3 columnar looking pups emerging from when I cut it to pieces) I have another TPC x Juuls which is columnar with 5 pups (also columnar so far). I am unsure whether to let them live on the mother plant or remove when suitable for numbers purposes. (BAP mix is 10,000ppm - 1% w/w)
