    chlorinated water & mushroom growing

    In commercial Mushroom growing OPs (A bisporus), case waters after flushes are done with "Town Water" with a an added free chlorine content of up to 150ppm and pH of around 5.5. So yeah using tap-water for outdoor watering/casing hydration/humidity totally fine. For spore syringes I wld use sterilized water for injection or aqua dest.

  6. First thought: "Whole lung lavage". So to physically remove the particles. Research shown it to be effective for early/accelerated silicosis.

    Vale ReshroomEd

    Oh no Met him in the Otways and sure enough "Eileen" was the beginning of my cactus appreciation! Safe Travels Ed....
  9. Ok, mushroom in question is a bit battered but hope someone can help. -found growing from wood stump just above ground (in total 2 fruiting bodies developed) -cap: 20cm, grey to white, offset -gills: white, so spore color probably whitish too -stipe: bare -smell: mushroomy/yum Thinking of cloning it straight in LC as if it is edible it lends itself well for outdoor cultivation in the plains. Thanks for your help
  10. Ah here we go...checked upon the "glowing" and tata it truly emits some light!!! Would not have expected Omphalotus in the 'burbs', but obviously a night-forest-wander is in order to appreciate bio-luminescence of younger specimens in all its glory Thanks Distracted!

    Treating cats FIV

    From Wiki Pharmacology The first pharmacological study of hordenine to be recorded is that of Heffter, who was also the first to isolate it. Using the sulfate salt (see "Chemistry"), Heffter gave a subcutaneous dose of 0.3 g to a 2.8 kg cat (~ 107 mg/kg), and observed no effects besides violent vomiting; the cat behaved normally within 45 mins. He also took a dose of 100 mg orally himself, without experiencing any observable effect. However, the alkaloid was observed to produce a paralysis of the nervous system in frogs.[2]

    Treating cats FIV

    Great job there ghosty...interesting stuff!! So can I confirm is the following your "base mixture": <<<The solution is made from Cats claw, echinacea, olive leaf, reishi mushroom and maitake mushroom.>>> And what did you add to the solution which caused the recent further improvement: <<<By the first test of a new plant decoction I was looking to add, I noticed an almost instant change in her....72 hours later gave her one drop of same solution. Observe her for the next 3 days. Well, All signs of virus attack seems gone>>> Thank you! Power to you and the kitty
  17. Have been making coll silver/ionic silver solutions for quite some time with a home made rig. Mainly external application especially in animals (skin/eye/ear), as the solution does not sting nor has neg. effects when licked off. Neat article re. the chem difference of silver-solutions and the associated risk of argyria.

    Jealous Slander

    I remember that camp-out very well...received my 1. ever cactus cutting from reshroomED, "Eileen" and left with pockets full of mush. I got along with reshroomED very well. He struck me as knowledgeable and generous.

    seed give away

    I never used it in a therapeutic way...but chewing the leaves/buds definitely causes numbing, a sort of electric tingling and increased salivation. Further info was found on the webzzz: " Toothache plants contain spilanthol which acts as an anaesthetic/analgesic. They also show anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antifungal properties and it is a sialagogue, stimulating the increased flow of saliva and consequently promoting digestion. The entire plant (root, stem, leaf and flower) is medicinally active. The dried plant, especially the dried flower buds retain their "zing" for up to a year after harvest. Spilanthol's muscle relaxing effects have even meant that an extract of the plant has found its way into high-end face creams that claim to have a natural 'botox' effect."
