  4. Is this the Himalayan honeysuckle (Leycestria formosa) that you are offering? If so, I would definitely be interested.
  5. Those sounds immediately reminded me of my Amiga 2000 and playing Double Dragon when I was a kid.

    Psilocybin Mushrooms of SE QLD, Australia

    Anyone mushroom foraging in the next day or two in SE Queensland? I'd really love to tag along. I have a large gap in my knowledge base and I'd be super interested in having a mycologist take me out into the field and teach me how to ID local fungi.
  9. Greetings! I'm completing a xeriscaped cactus garden and I'm looking to acquire lots of baby cacti approx the size of a lighter and smaller. Around 50 in total. If they are a bit bigger this is also fine. If you have any and would be happy to part with them, please get in touch and let me know what types you have and how much you'd like in exchange. Happy to do trades/swaps for some interesting ethnobotanicals if cash trades aren't your thing. Thanks in advance. Love & Light ∞

  13. Welcome. I greet you in the Love and Light. I am offering seeds of the rare and endangered Small Leaved Tamarind aka Diploglottis campbellii. 10 seeds for $15 including free postage anywhere in Australia. Growing to a height of between 7m - 10m in the garden, the Small-leaved Tamarind forms a handsome tree with a dense crown which provides excellent shade and shelter. Flowers are small, cream-brown, borne on multi-branched panicles and occur from November to January. Fruits are large (to 6cm across) and quite spectacular, 3-lobed capsules that split open when ripe to reveal the seeds covered by the bright red or sometimes yellow, fleshy aril. Fruiting occurs between February to March and individual trees are capable of producing many kilos of fruit. The flesh around the seed is the edible part which is refreshingly acid to taste. Its distinctive, tarty flavour lends itself to both sweet and savoury applications. It can be made into jams, jellies, drinks and sauces. This tree is rare and endangered in its native habitat with only 30 known trees remaining in the wild. The seeds will be sent to you in padded bag. If you are interested, please send me a message and I'll send you a payment link. Once payment is received the seeds will be sent the very next day. Approx 100 seeds available until all sold. Any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me. Have a great long weekend!  Love & Light  ∞

  15. Welcome. I greet you in the Love and Light. Just wondering if anyone had ideas of how to get a vine to grow up brick walls. The two plants are B. Caap and HBWR. All I've got to work with is a brick wall. I was thinking large metal hook eyelets and feeding them through this in a zig zag fashion Has anyone had any experience or got any ideas in this regard? Love & Light 8
  16. Awesome. I’m going to try the 2x eyelets and run some wire between them. Cheap and cheerful works for me. Thank you for everyone’s input. I’ll report back with how it goes.

    WANTED - Purple Oxalis Triangularis

    I'm starting to get the feeling this plant would be nothing but trouble. Thanks for the heads up.
  21. Go have a look in the mirror. That's the best doctor you will ever find.
  22. I was at a MediCann workshop in Nimbin recently and there was a talk about how an ingredient in Fisherman's Friend Original (Aniseed) works as a masking agent and was able to return false-negatives on roadside swaps. Also a lawyer got up and spoke and mentioned a defense being used that has been moderately successful was to point to a NSW government road transport website that states that impairment from MJ only lasts 12 hours, and that you as a good citizen making sure you don't drive impaired, waited over 12 hours before getting behind the wheel and that you were surprised that your test came back as positive after relying on that source of government information as the authoritarian voice on the matter. Basically I did the wrong thing but I was given the wrong information by you guys that led me to do the wrong thing. It reminded me a lot of that campaign that said 3 drinks in the first hour and then 1 ever hour after that. I heard that caused a shit storm.

Love & Light ∞ Passiflora Foetida (Love-In-A-Mist) General Information The Love-In-A-Mist passion flower is a scented, climbing herbaceous perennial plant, producing stems around 2.5 metres long. These stems scramble over the ground, or clamber into the surrounding vegetation, supporting themselves by means of coiling tendrils. The fruit is gathered from the wild and consumed locally, but its leaves are held in high esteem for their medicinal value. The plant is cultivated for its fruit in some tropical areas of America, Africa and Asia. Known Hazards The unripe fruits contain cyanide and are poisonous. Habitat Naturalised in the south Pacific where it is common along roadsides, forest margins, agricultural fields and coastal woodlands from sea-level to 200 metres. Cultivation Details Succeeds in warm temperate to tropical areas. Requires a humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil and a position in dappled shade. Prefers a neutral soil, disliking very acid or very alkaline conditions.Passiflora species tend to flower and fruit more freely when grown in soils of only moderate fertility.The plant can flower and produce fruit all year round. An extremely variable and widespread plant, it has a very long list of synonyms. Plants are very tolerant of pruning and can be cut back to ground level if required to rejuvenate the plant. Plants in this genus are notably resistant to honey fungus. Edible Uses Fully ripe fruit - raw. Sweet and juicy. Do not eat the under-ripe fruit since it can be toxic.The globose yellow to bright red fruit is about 25mm in diameter. Leaves - cooked. Used as an ingredient in soups Medicinal The fresh, whole plant is boiled and the liquid used as a children's anthelmintic, for intestinal nematodes and flatworms. A decoction of the dried plant is drunk to treat colds and chest coughs. It is also used in the treatment of tuberculosis, worms, and for coughs and colds. Fluid, pressed from the leaves and stem, is used to improve fertility in women. The root is antispasmodic.The leaves are crushed in water and the solution drunk as an antidote to the bite of the Papuan Black Snake. The leaves, combined with those of Erythrina variegata, are mashed and their juice extracted then drunk in order to induce sleep or to treat sleeping disorders. An infusion of the leaves is used for healing wounds. Fresh young leaves are mashed and then rubbed on to the wound of a snake bite. The leaf contains substances that have possible antimicrobial activity. Agroforestry Uses The plant is used as a ground cover and as a hedge. Other Uses Substances in the leaves deter feeding insects. Propagation Seed - best sown as soon as it is ripe along with the pulp which will help break down the seed coat and speed up germination. Stored seed should be soaked for 24 hours in warm water and germination time can be reduced if the seed is then mixed with the juice of a fresh passion fruit (of any species). Place the seed tray in a shady position. Prick the seedlings out into individual containers as soon as they are large enough to handle and plant out when large enough.
