    smelling accacias

    obtusifolia's dried & fallen leaves, soak up moisture from the soil, as they ferment and decompose, definitely exude the smell you're looking for. same with courtii just must more apparent / potent. never found that with simplex, strangely.
  2. you have done spectacularly well. I just wanted to add .... courtii ... from seed .... I had planted them directly into the ground (after boiling water treatment and swelling) into what was essentially bamboo chip mulch on top of red volcanic soil in northern rivers NSW. never had a problem with them. just keep wood ash well away or they'll die.

    Help with acacia cultivation needed!!

    hello. what can i do for an over pot-ashed courtii? all leaves have died, but scratching the wood is still green. thankyou.
  4. MMS (sodium chorite) & 50% citric acid. oxidizes the fk out of them. helps to have nascent iodine in your diet too.
  5. I say a complanata with a gradiant from red - to - green - to - blue in the phyllode. the answer I got was ...."test it" ... from one extraordinary helpful chap. shrug. they're pretty tho
  6. triphala is very good for the gut, anything like chrone's it can pretty much take care of.
  7. infowars' newest product is licoriche and star anise .... for fungal / mould / candida. maybe so called depression is just parasites and mycos' using us all to take a big dump.

    the smell of A. courtii

    they were born from seed where they stand in bamboo chip mulch, which had a lot of blue shrooms in it, thankyou Winter. Not chopped anything. need to tho, if you want a tree you can sit under. they droop all the way to the ground from as high as they can. Most acacias don't look nice, and you wouldn't really want to sit under one. this one is the exception. Please everyone grow this tree.

    the smell of A. courtii

    easily 3 meters tall probably 4. maybe 18 months old. stem and leaves that have fermented as they dried smell like dmt. and I can smell it when it rains too. they look like they will be a lovely weeping willow acacia. I just want to capture the smell for a black soap.

    Aya vine in compost ?

    this was twigs and leaves. here was a jar of caapi once upon a time ... left too long, fermented, with the smell of those lolly-bananas / a sickly sweet beer? it glowed ninja turtle wax bottle green under a small UV light from a 3v lipo torch from ebay And here i was thinking harmalas glow bright orange. coz they do ;) http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Portable-CREE-UV-LED-Flashlight-Torch-Purple-Light-395nm-Ultraviolet-Lamp-YC-/222435989358?hash=item33ca37d76e:g:pNcAAOSwXeJYEcW8

    the smell of A. courtii

    A branch broke off an Acacia courtii during some rain. pulled it down and left it in a tree. It had already died and semi dried. Every time I walk past the tree the branch now hangs in, I'm greeted by that beautiful smell acacias have become known for. It seems to have fermented some, giving off that indole ish smell. live harvested shade dried stuff does not seem to have too much of that smell. but fermented courtii must pack a punch if I can smell it just walking past it. any one had similar experience? thankyall!

    suggest getting yourself a nice little black-light-torch from ebay ... fermented caapi goes fluoresces ninja turtle green.

    Alkaloids and black wattle

    this is probably resurrecting a really old thread, but any black wattle search in google eventually turns up this thread. soooo.... given this thread was started in 2010 ... and it's 2015 now? so we know which wattle that "black wattle" changa was made from?? conurrens, decurrens, melanoxylon or meansrii, or other? im sure the internet would love to put this one to rest. thankyou folks!
  15. ha! cheers Pat Uri ;) equipment would have just be a metal tin .... go look at how bush folks make birch bark tar ~ its awesome. on the other hand, I'd wondered if the black goop would contain the dmt smell. how nice would a black dmt soap be ;) ... but I digress. god bless the chemists ^_^ cheers!
