    Jealous Slander

    My friends and I have been clued onto some pretty massive patches before purely with the intention of draining the main vein. As you're standing there suddenly you notice one... two... ten... 50?! oh wait this shit just keeps going... omg!

    Never heard any story of any sort about you.. This thread seemed to me completely unnecessary but oh well. Have fun!
  5. Nice background music, needs more substance if it is to stand on its own.

    Something about the spines and their colour don't look right to me.

    Medicinal Cultivation Laws

    I can picture the youtube videos now! "10 types of mushrooms THEY don't want you to know about!" Good luck, pretty sure i've seen lions mane for sale by a known shop... but don't quote me on that.

    Name change notifcations...

    Funny how times change, I used to be called Chiral!
  12. Hi! At my job I make a lot of coffees and have access to a fair amount of coffee grounds, way more than you'd ever need unless you're doing some commercial operation. Used coffee grounds are a great source of nitrogen for plants or for growing mushrooms(although all my mushroom cultivation attempts using coffee grounds have ended up in trich contamination, coffee grounds contam very easily) I have no idea if anyone would be even remotely interested in this but it's free fertiliser PM or post here This is mainly for Adelaide people, if you think shipping is feasible and you'd like to pay for postage I can send some for you but that seems weird to me. I won't ship to perth though, no-one else wants to and I don't want to be the odd one out.

    Sterilitily and grafting

    Hi! So i've done about 20 loph to san pedro grafts in the last month, have used the same blade for everything and haven't sterilized it once. I haven't noticed any bacterial or fungal infections. Any thoughts?

    Will this seedling survive?

    Weak genetics deserve to die to preserve the long term life of the species. Except for humans apparently, every human is very unique and special.

    How long after rooting...

    I've done plenty of grafts that have been cut that same day. I personally haven't noticed a big change in growth from rooted vs non rooted but haven't paid too much attention. I thought that the graft could get nutrients from the stock as soon as it has taken, it certainly can absorb water and plump up, that's my final indicator of when the graft has taken. edit: i only have experience in loph grafts though Also as far as harvesting pups from a mother used for stock, anywhere from a bit more wide than a 50c peice to a robust thick san pedro. The main thing to do i've found is to graft to a stock that is actively growing, you can graft to older stock but your success chance diminishes significantly, speaking from experience.

    Stimulant use for ADHD sufferers.

    The ADHD sufferers i've met and talked to claim they do not get 'high' off their medication. I found this study, has a lot of interesting elements to it. From data gatherered from the Raine study which is still ongoing Long-term outcomes associated with stimulant medication in the treatment of ADHD in children

    Does this sound good for cacti?

    Generally the older the soil the worse it is I thought... hence why Australia has old barren soils, depleted of their nutrients. Cacti seem to grow anywhere.... I wouldn't spend big money on land used to grow grapes hoping my cacti will grow 20% faster.
