    Radula Marginata is supposed to exist in Tasmania but unfortunately not elsewhere in Australia. I was meant to go for a hunt for it today but unfortunately that did not happen. there's a thread on it here... that gives an exact location. I was meant to go and check and see if I could find some today but it did not happen... If anyone does go, please respect the location and don't go and rape it, if there is lots take a small amount but if there is very little do not take anything unless its seeds. It is seemingly rare and will be hard to grow.

    Is this site dying out ?

    Ethnobotany is such a god damn interesting subject, learn about plants and their affects on our bodies and minds... Plus the history of it all, I honestly don't know why it took me so long to find out about this. But fuck, its so interesting! Unlike many interests you can go out, find something, buy some seeds, grow something and have a great experience along the way and when you get the final product too. I think with the website upgrade and shows like Hamilton's Pharmacopeia there will be a steady nice influx of new people (such as myself) who will hopefully help bring all of the awesome and awe inspiring plants and fungi to the rest of the world, and change some of those shitty misconceptions which are spread about certain things too in this time period.

    looking for Christia obcordata

    Only two links I could find that sell, but from USA/UK, so probably not useful... https://myemail.constantcontact.com/-Swallowtail--Butterfly-Plants-Are-Here-.html?soid=1102037641942&amp;aid=hYHhGq_6gDY https://raretropicals.ecrater.co.uk/p/21844135/christia-vespertilionis-10-seeds-very-rare

    Interesting prints wanted

    Hello all, I am after some interesting prints for microscopy purposes, would be great to get some from an australian rather than somewhere else to avoid having to import. Printed on paper would be best too. Send me a pm, thanks.

    Santalum spicatum - Sandalwood

    This is a really great thread, saving this one to read later. Would be great to make some sandalwood extracts, or essential oil. Stuff smells so nice! Really great thread and work you've put into this! Would be great to grow some of my own sandalwood, just need to get some established acacias first, but that wont be hard.

    don't cha hate it when..

    Wow thats pretty bad, hope she realises that a lot of people from overseas from poorer countries often just want to get with someone from australia to get a passport/visa, dont reckon itll end very well.
  20. Would be great to get some! But I also wonder if I should try and find some of the plants myself first before making you spend some money on sending them to me!

    The backyard.

    Alcohol, bars and drinking culture...

    The obscurities of modern civilisation, Alcahol being allowed while other substances are not. I think its influenced and partially built upon controlling people, either through the church originally (outlawing other substances such as mushrooms/achuma etc as they are spiritual tools used by other cultures beliefs) and then built upon further by governments who are influenced by old ways and their own agendas. To be honest the more I learn about other drugs the more I wonder why Alcohol is so socially accepted and other things are not, people call it a social lubricant but what about the 15% of people who get on it and start becoming anti-social, wanting to fight or hurt themselves. Anyway, thats a bit of a rant of mine. Its just all part of the weird world we live in.
