    C. sativa pollen

    Hi, I'm chasing a bit of fresh C. sativa pollen if anyone has some spare - I've got some plants I would like to pollenate Can swap for acacia and other seeds, P. sub spore prints as well. Thanks

    Chasing edible (gourmet) mushroom spores

    Hi, been getting into the whole fungus cultivation thingo - and am looking to expand my edible mushroom options (I have some enoki's I cloned from a storebought pack ). shoot me a message if you have prints or similar you'd be happy to share. I have plenty of P. sub prints (for microscopy purposes), lots of acacia and other natives seeds, and a few cacti seedlings. Thanks heaps

    Harvesting caapi?

    If one added them after brewing the vine, so no cooking of psilocin, then it should work

    I'll grab one or two!

    Acacia seeds!

    Hi! Just wondering what acacia seeds people have that they think I'd be interested in (basically any and all )... As I'm quite new to this whole ethnobotany thingo I don't have much to offer in return... but could probably dig up some native grass seeds or similar, may not be of interest to people, but then again, maybe it will... beyond this there is always cash

    Have I struck Gold!?

    I'm no expert, but those ones on the right are (to me) not Psilocybe's... rust cloured spore deposit and orange-ish stipe... the left hand group (with the exception of that single stipe maybe?) look a lot more like a psilocybe species, not going to say definitely; just because I am as previously stated, not an expert..... Generally, sub stipes seem to be a cool white (blueish white), whereas the right-hand group look to have a warmer white. Yp

    Saffy season?

    I'm not actually sure how old the pines are... maybe 50 years or so? I have actually never found them here before, they popped up on the SW side of the pine strip along a furrowed firebreak dug in over summer... It could be that the ploughing stressed the mycelium into fruiting, because I've found a bunch of different things that I've never seen around along the ploughed strip including some funky Pseudocolous species. In some ways, it's nice because we also cleared all the leaf litter collected at the bottom of the pines over summer (just way too close to our house to take any risks), which I'm worried has severely impacted the sub colony there, so finding exciting different things kinda makes up for it... Sadly we seem to have missed the rains... only about 5-10 ml over the last month, the saffies that popped up we after some heavy dews plus light showers... hoping the rains get to here eventually!

    Saffy season?

    I'm not particularly sure... but just got my first few under our pine windbreak these last few days following some heavy dews and 0 degree nights.... only three, but more coming along! Hoping to get out soon and get enough for a proper meal... sunday maybe

    Acacia seeds!

    Thanks for the info! I guess fire would probably be it... just very slow-growing in that particular area. Haven't been able to get any A. obtusifolia seed yet, definitely still looking!

    Acacia seeds!

    Hmmm, that's interesting, haven't had a fire through those particular areas in the twelve years I've been here, and the areas that had seen fire seem completely devoid of them (possibly the fire frequency was too great, and so the younger recruits burnt before they could set seed?... dunno). Actually, just remembered I have found one that was seeding, right next to the road, couple of years ago now... I was very excited until I drove past one morning and found it had been mulched along with everything else on the side of the road... I was devastated, to say the least!

    Wanted: Some cacti seeds/cuttings

    Hey, hoping to get my cacti collection going properly. Not really looking for anything in particular, just whatever people have! I've got a bunch of native seeds and stuff for trade, or cash... either or Thanks, Yp

    Wanted: Some cacti seeds/cuttings

    Thanks so much Humboldt... I'll send some things back down... anything you might be interested in particular? (not that I have a particularly large collection... but there might be something )

    Wanted : decorative salvias and beautiful brugmansias

    Hey Niggles, It's a great plant... for some reason that doesn't surpise me all that much, definitly has some kind of healing feeling! Would love some purple salvia! Thanks so much for the offer Sadly I can't help you out on the salvia salvia front... but if I ever manage to get my hands on it I'll shoot some your way!

    Wanted : decorative salvias and beautiful brugmansias

    I've got a pretty large salvia of some sort... you may have it all ready, but if you're interested let me know! Fantastic bushy growth, and red/white flowers... the bees love it! Flowers taste good too Yp - just did I quick google search... could be Salvia microphylla?

    Acacia seeds!

    Hey Flux, ended up putting an order online for a bunch of different seeds... I now have more acacia seeds than I'll ever know what to do with! It'll be interesting to see how the acuminatas go, we get hit pretty hard by the frosts here, maybe if I get them through their first few winters they might be okay. Yeah, would love to get some obtusi's going, plenty around in the bush... but never found one large enough for seed... just hundreds of little sucker type things, it's pretty odd, dunno if it's normal or not though (the lack of mature age individuals). Thanks so much for the offer though! Yp

    Gimli's Beezness

    That's interesting, hadn't really considered this... but it kinda makes sense, don't really blame really! As a side note, lovely top bar hive
  19. Hmmm... I have also considered this... so I don't have a setup, cause I haven't done it! By memory, I was scared off by the price of a culture... this was a few years ago though, so pricing may have changed. If you end up having a go, keep us updated! Would love to see how it goes!

    A quick introduction

    Since having my account validated I've been meaning to write up a little introduction, but for whatever reason, it just didn't happen. But here we go; slightly later than intended... but better than never! After spending the past year or two reading this forum without ever signing up I finally decided it was well and truly time to do so - so here we are! With both my parents being ecologists, one thing has remained fairly constant throughout my life; a deep interest in plants and fungi, more specifically native species (but definitely not limited to such!) Since a very young age I have been fascinated by medicinal plants... and I probably spent more time than I should have throughout my highschool years scanning my mum's old uni textbooks on medicinal and edible native flora... my schooling definitely suffered, but I believe I have developed a more healthy range of knowledge because of it My current place of residence lies on the SE coast of NSW, and we've spent the last 12ish years transforming it from an overgrazed collection of paddocks into a lovely little refuge for native wildlife. I shall upload some pictures in the next post, I just need to downsize them enough so that I don't get that pesky error message. I also wanted to say a quick thanks to this community for the warm welcome I have already received, especially to Humboldt and Pedro, who started off my collection very generously.
