    Mystery aloe giveaway

    Looks like Aloe Vera except the leaves look a little flatter, might just be to do with environment though. Aloe Vera has 20/22 essential amino acids, anti-bacterial, anti-microbal, it's even good for plants. I fillet the gel and eat that, also use on burns and on my skin when out in the sun. Use it before you go in the sun instead of waiting to be burnt. Such a great plant, one of my favs.

    Can't go wrong for that price
  3. These are the seeds I sell and post out. The ziplock bags are small "snack" size, but you can use any size really. Open a bag, spray water in 1 or 2 times. Mostly seal the bag but leave a small opening in the middle. Pinch either side of the 10mm opening and push together slightly to make an opening. Blow the bag up using your mouth then seal it. Give it a good shake to spread the seeds and water around. If the bag deflates just blow it up again, it usually lasts the 2 weeks though. Then put in a dark place at room temp. I did this on 20 August 2021. The rest of the pics were taken 2 September 2021. As you can see germination rate is still good, around 80%. These were harvested December 2020 and kept in a cool, dry, dark place. If you want to buy any seed it's 23 bucks for 150x seeds, all in one bag from tree number 4 which is Vienna White/Pink (running low on others), including tracked postage.

    A big season for flowers...

    Soo many more this year. I've been feeding mine more/different nutes so that has been a big factor for me. Winter gets pretty dry here so they usually cop a watering from the bore, which is drinkable water (no CSG here or mining). Whatever's the reason there's shitload more flowers this year, and still more coming. There's one I noticed not flowering yet that did last year and it's much healthier than it was. Maybe it's something to do with the old growth that has slowed and then it focuses energy to the old growth for flower and makes new pups for different nutrients to travel to. Maybe they need a build up of nutrients to flower and if it's growing the new growth can't support what's need to make flowers. Coz the new growth is obvious with this other cactus not flowering. Making the most of it and impregnated every flower so far. Not sure if the last 2 will take coz I left a peg on the flower to stop the bees stealing the pollen, no more than 24 hours. Went to take it off late afternoon to catch the pollen and they didn't open. No pollen inside and it seemed like it was a flower that had already opened, but even then they last 2 days. So did I kill it? Anyone had that experience with theirs? Think I'll use something less forceful next time like a hair clip.

    Cacao dosage

    I eat a shitload of it in my muesli, or along with coconut chocolate desert. 6-8 tablespoons per day when I have it in muesli, but I have a massive muesli bowl. Just get it in your diet as best you can by mixing it in where you can get away with the taste. $22/kg is roughly what I pay from the wholefoods place I go to that sells heaps of dried grains and seeds etc. The way supermarkets sell things there's way too much plastic involved for the amount I eat.
  6. Looking for mature green or NL catha for sale or trade. I think I might have just recently killed a green catha that was a few years old, forgot to water it for a week and needed a repot but was planning on putting it in the ground. Leaves were all crispy by the time I realized and all have fallen off I still have hope though. So yeah I'm looking for a replacement, and still don't have a NL yet so putting that out there too.

    Catha Edulis (Khat, Qat) Green and Narrow Leaf

    They do love a good watering but yeah can go weeks or months without water, in the ground at least. Maybe in pots too with the right soil, but not root bound in a pot. I had it sitting in water so I'd say it was use to that, then the sudden dry spell for the week or 2 put it off it's game. I thought it was gunna come back but doesn't seem like it now. I wasn't playing hard ball with it, just forgot about it. Bit hard to get a new one too, as we can see here. This plant death was a one off, and came to me like it was. I'd had it for over a month though but should have repotted it, just thought I'd have already planted it like the others I got. I don't even water the reds I got that are in the ground and they are fine. I think once they get root bound and stress out, that can be the end of them. Has happened to a couple of acacias and a couple of other trees I got from a nursery.

    When caapi flowers? and is it self pollinating?

    Feed it plenty of nutes and it might give you a show. Winter is when it's gearing up so you wanna feed it warm fert then. I think flowers all look the same but the yellow refers to the colour of the inside of the vine. Split a thick piece of vine in half lengthwise and it will be yellow in the center.

    covid 19 vaccination

    I think you'll find most politicians, especially high up, have lawyer a background, or plane old political careers. Scientists are easily bought just like any politician. Gov is there to keep classes separate and in check. If you go trying to mess with the rich they'll just pull the rug out from under the peasants feet, as they are doing now with lockdowns. Hardly any cases yet politicians and their "scientists", "health experts" are still carrying on with drama. I just find it all funny and a bit of a show. As per OP..Gov is phasing out astrazenica anyway. Gee I wonder why...changing the name of the vaccine did sweet fuck all haha. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-06-23/gov-projects-little-need-for-astrazeneca-after-october-covid19/100239442
  11. It's a weird thing, some times I don't notice it and others it's ear piercing. A good sleep and entering REM sleep is apparently beneficial, I think the melatonin helps too. I remember seeing a doco or read somewhere that research is being done with sea urchins that have some repair mechanism that can apparently help reverse tinnitus, but can't find it anywhere after a quick internet search, so take that with a grain of salt. Came across this instead though, electrical stimulation to the tongue that helps. https://twin-cities.umn.edu/news-events/new-research-could-help-millions-who-suffer-ringing-ears "The tinnitus treatment device used in the study, now branded as Lenire®, was developed by Neuromod Devices and consists of wireless (Bluetooth®) headphones that deliver sequences of audio tones layered with wideband noise to both ears, combined with electrical stimulation pulses delivered to 32 electrodes on the tip of the tongue by a proprietary device trademarked as Tonguetip®. The timing, intensity, and delivery of the stimuli are controlled by an easy-to-use handheld controller that each participant is trained to operate. Before using the treatment for the first time, the device is configured to the patient’s hearing profile and optimized to the patient’s sensitivity level for tongue stimulation. " I've found when tripping it mostly goes away, I think my brain might be switched on enough to cancel it out with another white noise, or when I'm more focused on visuals. Meditation seems to help.

    When caapi flowers? and is it self pollinating?

    Mine's flowering now, or starting to bud on the mid north coast nsw. Enjaytee put pics on facebook of his in full bloom now and he's in SEQ. I have one younger plant that flowers more than the other and it seems to be on newer shoots that are furthest away from the base. I totally stripped one plant back that was strangling my blueberries a few weeks ago and it is shooting flower buds now as well as some new leaves. So after the winter soltice they seem to flower. At least here on the east coast in Australia. SEQ is about 350km north of me, and their flowers are a couple of weeks ahead. Nights here can get down to 5c and days 20c. Apparently they are self polinating but I've never had seeds but have had them flower several times. Maybe I need more flowers or to try more hand pollinating, I've only tried it once. 4-5 years they should flower in the right conditions i.e not too cold and enough fertilizer. Have heard of cuttings flowering from 2 years. Maybe picking the leaves will encourage it to sprout new growth and it can focus on the flowers too. They drop a fair few leaves here in winter.

    Coupla TBMs

    Also keen on 2. Tried messaging coupla days ago but nothing yet
  14. So before Torsten blocked me he said; " The legislation is laid out to read. All legislation is online. I check it all the time. " but wouldn't send me a link and was arrogant about it. Me: Dude if it were black and white where all your legislation then? Reply by Torsten: You're a fact resistant idiot. I couldn't be bothered. I already told you all legislation is online. On the government website. Me: unmute me in the group and I won't post any sales. I wanna ask more info about legality Me: Goose chases aren't for me Torsten: sorry, I am not your educator and I can see you will only spread misinformation in the group. I'll make the mute permanent. Me: Nah but you have an opinion based on something you won't share....seems a bit rude to me Then I was blocked... So according to Torsten I'm a fact resistant idiot, but I'm honestly yet to see any fact. It's also apparently been discussed plenty of times in the forums but I can't find anything stating legislation? Can someone please please point me in the right direction to where legislation states caapi plant material is illegal?

    Where's the legislation on caapi legality?

    No you haven't. I asked more questions and you couldn't answer so you blocked me. So much negativity all for asking something you make it sound like you know so much about, what a sham. Forums are here for the benefit of everyone not just me, and I'm not the only one who can't answer my question, it's quite evident others can't either. So being the great leader you make out to be it'd be nice to share information rather than hoarding it while riding around on a high horse trying to put others down who question you. Yes I got the meaning but just didn't work so well in context to what you said. Indeed it's gotten a bit ridiculous and off topic but I'm still here and happy to correct any wrong I have done. So I'm gunna take it that I haven't done anything out of place, just tried to get an answer to a question about a legal matter. If I'm wrong and have done something incorrect please let me know here. haha funny how sideways it's gotten, and no fault from me. Thank fuck for some reality finally. This is the result I came to that it's a grey area, but was shut down time and time again by Torsten with no explanation except for me being a "fact resistant idiot"..

    Where's the legislation on caapi legality?

    Huh...I have hence asking the question, it's stated in my first post. If you need me to quote it for you let me know. Lol to tell someone to answer their own question that others can't answer is a bit far fetched, just nonsense really. Yes yes greater clarity on legal matters would be a good thing hence my first post.... "But this cause is poorly served by ad hominem asides." Wanna clarify that?

    Where's the legislation on caapi legality?

    haha if that's how it works this isn't a place I'd wanna be sticking around, but it's clearly not how it works coz I'm still here. Forums need users to work and if you go banning everyone who asks questions that can't be answered it's a bit counterintuitive. Amazing how there's all these comments but no one has been able to answer my question. Plenty of negativity being thrown towards me too which is like questioning a religious cults belief system then being stoned for it lol, what a joke.

    Where's the legislation on caapi legality?

    1,2 and 3 I've demonstrated understanding of in my comments, so I'm not sure what you're on about.. You wanna point out how it became apparent to you that I missed those thing? Hostile? Can you please quote where I was hostile. Oh and also please point out where someone was trying to help me with my question, coz that would involve someone actually answering it or at least trying to?

    Where's the legislation on caapi legality?

    Ummmm I think you need to do some dictionary reading to get the meaning of words. Asking a question is not ignorance. I never heard of any of the forums you mentioned, which isn't "hundreds"... and the one's I have known about for years still exist, so my comment still stands. Once you get a grasp on the meaning of words your ego tripping will likely subside somewhat.

    Where's the legislation on caapi legality?

    Hahaha doesn't matter whether he's your best mate, you grew up with him, your brother, dad, whatever....it still came across to me that you were crawling up his arse, justify it however you want it is what it is.. Oh yeah and my long term friendships don't end in arse kissing, quite the opposite, we give each other shit and take the piss, and can do this coz we actually know each other. Well yeah he owns the domain but I don't think it's 'his forum' so to speak, takes more than just one person to make a forum. Plenty of businesses have forums or groups on fb to help boost business, it's a no brainer really, especially if you can get the users to pay for it themselves. I'm all for this forum and the information it harbors, but without it's users it's nothing. What forums are you talking about? There were never that many and the ones I have known about for years still exist.

    Where's the legislation on caapi legality?

    Haha I get what it's trying to imply, but it's meaningless words when put in context. Maybe you wanna elaborate then? Bet you can't, just running your mouth instead as usual.. Muted for annoying a moderator too much? lol more like asking the moderator for a time stamp and getting a hostile response, then getting muted coz I was questioning what he said. Another member hit the nail on the head in one post and answered my question, but that was after I was muted. Also it's a bit pathetic to mute someone then make false claims about what was said after. My question never changed and your mate Gus just rambled on assuming I was whinging about not seeing another bid before the auction ended, I didn't care about that only mentioned that to the Author. I kept correcting him when he was misquoting what I said and trying to get him to clarify the time stamp. " comment from Torsten "This auction result seems clear to everyone except Luke who is rude and argumentative even though the error is on his part. It's not the moderator's problem if he can't see a bid." I don't think you actually read all the comments, if you did you'll see I wasn't fussed and just wanted the time stamp checked coz I didn't realize you could see it from the PC, have seen plenty of other posts where people ask for time stamps and it's sorted in one comment, this shitshow was just ridiculous and so much ego tripping instead of just answering my question lol, what a joke. As you can see I just wanted it clarified.... Me: soooo his bid was 1 min after mine by your watch? If so then all good. Gus: We can see the same timestanps you can, you clearly said you couldn't see the bids and I'm trying to help you and answered in good faith, calmly, to the exact question you posed. Really not sure why you are firing up at this at all, from my perspective you were rude and hostile to me trying to help politely in good faith. Me: so how can you tell " according to the timestamp only one minute after your bid." but then say "We can see the same timestanps you can" ??? I don't get it, so can you see the timestamp showing the other bid 1 min after mine? or do you see "16h"? Gus: Mate, you're pushing for a mute. Yes, it's within 5 mins, as I said. We can all see the same thing, hover over the time and it will give you minutes, that's what I used, and what we all use, admin or not. And this shit, "yeah no shit that's why I commented "huh"..." when I'm clearly trying to answer the exact question you asked, I can't read your mind that you can see the comment when you literally say you can't see bids from 7 mins after yours, you never said you could see Andrews bid but just didn't know the time of it. Re-read what you actually asked above with a little more perspective. I'm done here. So he finally clarifies but mutes me before doing so. and here's my question that went over Gus' head, let's see if I "literally say I can't see bids", also please note there's literally a difference between the word "didn't" and "can't"...haha Me: huh so what happened here? didn't even know there was another bid after me Me: don't admins check time or something to make sure it was within 5 min? I had the page open and didn't see any other bids after 7min, maybe something was up and it didn't load but all other bids came through. Then about 10 comments later someone takes a screenshot of my original question and posts this answer. "from pc u gotta hold ur mouse over the timestamp.. i dnt think it is avail to mobile users" Seriously what a mission to get a simple answer from one of your chosen ones. Let's try and stay on topic now please.

    Dude you've already made your statement so you're in regardless, if you want out edit your other comment too. Not sure why it's hard for you to clarify what you said..you made the comment after all.

    Where's the legislation on caapi legality?

    haha wanna elaborate on that? Wanna crawl any further up his arse? lol "Torsten's forum" Wanna elaborate on that? "spitting the dummy" How so? Is having an opposing opinion, and asking questions about what facts someone else's opinon, somehow spitting the dummy to you? Your words don't hold much value when you throw them around based on no facts.. "If your SAB related existence is as bad as you say" Wanna quote where I said that, please. "fuck off" Lol you're just a shit talker, and as I said, your words hold little to no value lol, just a joke. "start your own pages and forums" I don't think you understand how forums work, it's not the owner who makes them what they are, it's the users, and if the owner kicks out users willy nilly people do find other places or make them. That's not the case here though, Torsten runs the forums fine and same with fb, I don't have an issue with him deleting my post, I'm just trying to get answers to clarify caapi's legality. Not sure why this has turned into such a shit show, and I'm not the one slinging shit either, just asking questions, being ignored, then calling out that ignorance. Btw I'm not the only person reading this or who doesn't know what I'm asking, I haven't seen anyone else chime in to back up what Torsten is saying, just people pissing in his pocket.

    "topic wanker" lol pull your head in. No one said anyone is smarter than anyone but thanks for your assumption. Tort gives me energy? huh? How is me asking him questions which he ignores giving me energy? It's actually wasting energy. People who know a lot have no need for arrogance, they just answer the question simply and get on with it, which definitely isn't the case here.
