  1. This section seriously needs a non- ID "show of your wild finds" thread, pinned I would say oh yes it started Macrolepiota procera
  2. Mandragora Hey anyone growing or having any experience or cool link for mandrake cultivation, especially of established plants ? (only saying this because i dont have any seeds yet, so I cannot talk about growing from seed) mistakes I made so far *needn't more free draining soil, more perlite, f.e. *hurried them a bit in the begining, lost a few to rot, combined with heavy rich soil I would like to discuss how you rest, at the dormancy period I was reading that some times the plants stop growing if they reach the bottom of the pot (therefore they need big pots) , but its difficult to understand if its resting for dormancy (depending on hemisphere and species) or just stopped for a while (dried current rozette) and will continue / sprout a bit later again. So seeing the majority of my plants driying out, and only one having flowered ( well they were transplanted from the wild so they're had a stressful year), I decided to carefully uproot them after I read a while, in case they were already dormant and I was still watering. On the other hand, some that had dried earlier, started throwing leaves again!, so I left some in their pots too. Thankfully they are ok, indeed they all had reached the bottom of the pot, the new roots are satisfyingly fatty given the circumstances - also TWO of them are starting a rozete (leaves) , and I think another too. http://postimage.org/'> so my questions.... 1. what about those broken rootlets and also that tiny little plant? will in survive dormancy till september or its too thin and it will dry up? What about planting them now (supposely, a month or less before their nomral dormancy) ? Can they loose their circle? What about planting them, but leaving a piece above... What about planting rootlets of mandrake to propagate horizontaly? anyone done it? 2. I am thinking of taking also some fatter root cuttings - tstarted hinking about them like underground cacti. Is it a good idea? and if I take them, I should better let them rest , then re pot in september (begining of season) ? 3. Can they be hurried up? and if yes, then I suppose the critical period which one should not push them but rather let them rest is the resting/dormancy after each years flowering? 4. How do you let it dormant (plant or root without soil) ? like bulbs? (f.e. bulbous flowers) dry and cool place, away from sunlight and so? Cheers and hopefully there are a couple opinions on these matters grow on
  3. I am a fan of extreme cinema horror / weird you name it ... I will only name one film for now, that I have stated that it is probably (and so far!) the most disturbing of the most disturbing films of all time, "A Serbian film" (2010) Dont rush to watch it if you havent seen Saw, hostel and other extreme horror films of the so called "torture/revenge" subgenre or in generally not having been prepared. This is perhaps related with the subject: what other films are like Saw/Hostel/Cube etc .... === will definately come back with some recommendations if there is interest

  5. Alright, I got sent those acacia seeds from a fabulously generous SAB member, I thank him a lot! A. acuminata [two strains] A. neurophylla subsp. neurophylla A. neurophylla subsp. erugata A. obtusifolia A. phlebophylla So having had not so much success with xerophytic plants any tips on how to germ these seeds [nicking, burn, soaking in warm water] and how to handle the seedling [what kind of medium, rich~poor, freedraining or what? do they tolarate root disturbance, do they need humidity tent at first?] will be very appreciated. Of course I would and will experiement until I get something that works, but some tips beforehand will sure help PS: I recently got a mini greenhouse to use as a large tent for grafts and stuff, you think it's a nice spot for seedlings to grow?
  6. I a sagittarius / archer I fit in the characteristics of sags a lot I cannot stand oppression, I am a free spirit, I cope with lots of things/hobbies/interests, like to explore, I am social and 'lucky', even though I never believed in luck, but in free will. Sometimes I annoy people with my enthousiasm and over-talkative-ness [read: break their balls because i talk too much overenthusiastically about something].
  7. It seems bridgesii is one of the funkiest cacti ever in the monstrosity sense, in that they tend to have many forms, many strains, many types of weirdness. we even have two "melted wax" clones, the infamous slow growing crest and the columnar melted wax Most say there are 2 types of penis, TBM, the rarer type A which does larger dicks (I dont own it, buying or trading it though, PM me) and the more common type B. I remember some dude mentioning a third type of penis but dont remember.. I also remember a discussion about how the bridgesii crest now and then throws out a penis and M Smith saying something like "you're supposed to cut the dicks so as the crest prevails" or something like that.. I dont remember where this discussion happened... If you remember / find anything, throw the link in the thread. What nobody said or reported ,as far as I remember , is: 1) what happens if you root the cut penises from a meltedwax crest ? how does it evolve? 2) what happens if you root a penis cutting with no areoles? I doubt type B TBM would do anything interesting, but I havent tried this out.. what I got is both a couple penises from melty crest mothers and a large areole-less cutting of the same clone for rooting. So apart from the dicks and the one (?) type of crest we also got a couple named clones from around the world most ethnobotanically advanced societies of today.. we got "melted wax" columnar monstrosa , this is the most monster of other less weird specimens I had grown in the past.. there is also lotusland , I assume these two come from USA, then there is also the ozzie Bruce, I think, I remember its a semi-monstrosa bridgesii as welll... maybe there are a couple other ozzie clones / names I miss? throw them in! Me I had met with semi-monstrosities in bridgesii before, first it was that "praktiker" strain I had, which shifted rib count a lot , later it was a very blue, "bridgesii of the 4 winds" that went 4-rib often, now this too plays a lot with rib count. I have grown for relatively little time both melted wax mosntrosa and lotusland and these two seem a pretty interesting, with melted wax being the most wild. PS: will comeback with photos , but it will take time to grow more of these. PS2: pictures of two different columnar strains , side by side, or the two TBMS, type A and type B, are greatly wanted in discussing the phenotypes, so I offer a freebie to anyone who offers such a photo here in the thread. I can make at least one such photo, with melted wax and what I think is lotusland, as I lost the labels...

    awesome greek music

    Genia tou Chaous = Chaos generation - legendary greek hc-punk band TA LOGIA = THE WORDS (CHAOS GENERATION) http://www.discogs.com/artist/578802-%CE%93%CE%B5%CE%BD%CE%B9%CE%AC-%CE%A4%CE%BF%CF%85-%CE%A7%CE%AC%CE%BF%CF%85%CF%82 live 2009 studio LP 2012 *** live 2009 studio 2012 these are two for the lastest songs of what perhaps is the single most important greek hardcore-punk band of the 80s, which came back in 2009 to play live and also give us 3 more songs.. , 2 of which I present you here...
  9. In seeing how my "taqaquirensis" seedlings looklike taquimbalensis, and noting that some people's werdermanianus also look taquimbalensis, I am pretty thrilled to compare all of them. Well we got some mature ones to show, again, compare with the last photo if ya like to judge the growth speed. 1. taquimbalensis plain, came with a kk number from sab. Mostly straight spines 2. taquimbalensis var wilka, seed grown, love this clone because it's still a 7-ribber and its probably my darkest-green coloured tricho. It's definately NOT as fast as "Efi" , but EFI spent 1 year on a pereskiopsis... 3. taquimbalensis var wilka forma EFI . This clone has earned its name in my opinion for a number of reasons. It got named after my ex, which was a pretty curvy girl, and so is this clone. Note that this EFI specimen was taken from the mother plant, was rooted and eventually got to be bigger than the seed grown wilka (2) that is of the same age like the EFI motherplant. Efi and the awesome 7-rib wilka (2) are coming from the same seed batch. I got another two of them outside , in the ground, but I should probably take them out to grow in a proper containter. Efi is pretty willing to increase her rib number and has the most awesome ribs - also this my only female trichocereus ! , oh, there's Eileen too!
  10. traces of mealy was not in the spot which pupped, it was in the previous 'branch'
  11. I wonder what would be the main characteristics of these fatty trichs, as well as other similar trichs of the fatty 'family'... They grow more slowly than the fast growing trichs, I know that. They have more dense and long spination than pachanoi family. What else? I am supposedly growing both species, so it should be fun
  12. considering moderator watertrade has a beef with me, and since torsten never liked me much and I am not currently seeking for peace formulas, like most of ya hippy cunts would SAB be better without me ? or maybe I would be better without SAB for some time ? (well thats one for me to answer)
  13. Well, I have been in here for some time... Some of you might always thought of me as inappropriate, but if you ask me, this forum is awesome in the function and structure because IME it has the most freedom of all forums I have been.. Freedom is vital in a forum.... So wheareas I have been pretty naughty along the years, my behaviour was well tolerated, it seemed. I got 2 warning points some time ago , because of saying fuck off to watertrade via PM , and while he was deleting my posts, calling my drunk posts rubbish... now I am having a post deleted/hidden , one in bitches and degenerated , because I was calling sub a cunt now wtf, I dont remember a post hidden in bitches before... have you changed the rules or something? If you wanna tell me something, please do it in PM, this kind of moderation will not work for me these days...

    pretty clear they dont exactly like and support demonic plants around here... I would love to be reading the info I am giving! probably some bad datura experience of everyone of the old sab crowd , typical with every early old hippy. I used to read datura reports in erowid and be amzed by the motive I saw in all experiences... amazing, just amazing how these medicinal plants got so involved in and around the evil the devil... and how idiots around the world were so eager to get stoned that they went through the datura delirium, sometimes is could go really bad... respect devil plants have to grow to understand.... mandragora belladona hyoscyamus datura UTD
  15. taratatzum-tzum tzum! I said this somewhere, here it comes, only here and now seed givaway (nitrogen original seed) PM me europe prefered, US too no problem and anywhere as sending to oz is both formally illegal and thus risky (could make and exception or two though) its so nice having been here all these years thank you all I should and will give away these seed as a last(?) thank you I havent decided the creterion to which I should send and why, so you could improvise... in yr PMz you could as well write or think: ".... you cunt, you received them as a freebie , gifted with them, as an actual cactus grower, and actually didn't do anything with them !!! ...." well, you're right, only got a couple smallie ones.... from mostly one strain.... well thats why I am giving the rest of seed away, because this kind of seed should not be wasted on my hands and my lazy sowing style OK I got a rule (by which you write to me and I decide If you get seed ) : if there are 3 replies, and 1 is bold and enthousiastic and 2 are lukewarm the enthousiastic guy get all the seed... lukewarms get nuthing... people who are willing to further spread the seed / seedlings off it to other people will be definately prefered... extras like zelly's ariocarpus seed I never sowed and generic (?) lophophora seed should be expected for those who get the seed packs plus, I know I am cunt cunt is a word... hippies real word / life warriors will never be afraid of words, because human life was and is still based on words...
  16. bog I remember 2 'enemies' I made in the past in here ... one went on to be a moderator and then a thief and another, months after we had argued last time, telling me in a PM what great times it was , when we argued about this and that, and I completely felt the same way, while, at the point of the arguements, back then, hippies from left and right told us guys to calm down and .. not argue so loud... ! its funny stupid hypocritic and essentially anti-psychedelic to reject certain manifestations of truth, expression especially in word form who is afraid of words? only those who are either afraid of them and/or those who cant use them competently enough but yeah boggie, I am all about making enemies w/anybody as you said, and fight with words, unlike you pussy hippies, that seem to not comprehend the full meaning and context of the word freedom, especially in the "BAD/TRASH" section of a forum PS#? watertrade pleas let this as well
  17. oh you psychedelic dudes If I was able to post freely, instead of being actively censored, post by post (not being able to post without a mod approval and all) I would fuck you all and talk about the censorship of it all and , btw, fuck you all , well not all, but, I have to despise you all so as to look really cool and all. so fuck you I have been one the most honest members here motherfuckers, I would have at least appreciated this if I were in yr place.. wut I get is that am a "great" guy because I am fascinated by some ethnoplants thus I was tolerated but I am clearly a bad guy, with bad manners, that you nevertheless would like to have because I am a plant guy well FUCK YOU but it dont hold a grudge: each one to his own PS: watertrade please allow this post ... since I post drunk (and these posts are rubbish) I cant really keep up with what I post

    yeah but are you asking about outside conditions, both here and in the island I first got it? island is zone 9 or zone 10 I am in zone 8+ zone 9 or something modern shaman> I think officinarium has a different (reverse?) cycle than automnalis and I expect it grow better in colder zones shonman I hope you are not trying with the wrong species I already told about the periods that plant acts but here's it once again CYCLE

    Am I a racist ?

    watertrade> if I was truely being so abusive, why didnt you give anyone a chance to make a god damn dialogue... wtf? why didn't you give me a warning in public? where you afraid I was gonna tell you fuck you in yr face and you would loose your cool? In any case, you never moderated me this way, like you were trying to provoke this supposed "aggressive" personality. deleted my posts, PMing me they were inappropriate or rubbish you're just pussies how can someone be afraid of words? is this is mental clinic? is the bitches section a mental ward for people with problems? them please, can I post about my plants unmoderated, and be allowed to be both a drunk and a SAB member? and if things escalated you could slap me in the face, puplic antichrist knows I have asked sorry a couple of times, for bad behaviour but here watertrade, is saying I am using my agressive personality for bullying someone... (btw this someone is someone who was blaming the whole SAB for reasons I sure nobody fully understood) well agrressive personality, have you read my natal chart? why would I do this? BTW subs responese did not seem insulted, rather pleased to be given attention and had racist reaction (successful troll is successful 0 to bad the post that made him reply this way was hidden) - but maybe he was just joking, right? ;)
  21. I dont know someone might say that a "TRASH" section in a forum could work as a trick for people to steam off. if this section is heavily moderated, then what should happen in the other sections? I really believe in the function of the trash section in a forum. Whatever the opinions are, it sure extends the freedom of expression, while protecting the easily offended and the prude from negative energy that would other wise express itself in the main forums. At the same time it allows for pushing the envelope outside the norm , and while it might seem ugly, evolution was never supposed to be a diplomat. I am very curious to hear yr opinions...
  22. FUCK OFF all you dont get it scorpio i dont suck up nothing ozzie cunts
  23. wow awesome am I posting to the moderators now or to the forum?

    Am I a racist ?

    I remember when you put moderator a man that later proved a common thief we had several rounds of arguements with this dude before he was put a mod .... aaaaah, nice times! I didnt think he is a fraud and thief of course before, but clearly this dude was taking too much thieves and conmen aside I cant give a fuck for a moderator (watertrade) who gave me two warning signs for some fuck you's I told him through PM just cant so moderate as you please, but there's something missing here has there been a change? are you getting old T?
