    Well, I have done some research on cactus. I previously thought that there was only 1 'active' cactus and that was not available in Australia. Until my recent mushroom interest was rekindled I also thought that there was only 1 hallucinogenic mushroom. Naive , I know but hey, 25ish years ago ,not every one had a computer with vast amounts of knowledge at their fingertips. We picked those mushrooms and were more than happy with that. We had no-one to consult regarding dosage or identity,we just worked it out ourselves( the hard way!) Each time the season ended it was probably a good thing. Having said that, I am wondering which cactus is the easiest to obtain and then maintain ? No , not bitten by the cacti-bug YET ,but I am genuinely interested.I want to know more and will be reading the cacti section of this forum from another perspective.

    I will have to do some research on cacti. I know nothing about them. There is a plant nursery locally and it has what they call 'collectors corner' and it has some bizzare cacti there. The next time i go there i will be thinking of all you cacti freaks out there:) Has anyone heard of the musician Loudon Wainwright, yes,no ,maybe? He does this song called "The Acid Song", it is worth a listen. I like it.

    So this thing you have all got for cacti, is it actually for asthetic purposes, or medicinal or other. I am not really into pricks and am not keen on roses for the same reason.BUT...if there is a use for cacti, I am sure I could become interested. Some of the non spikey ones are pretty fascinating. I do have Aloe Vera that I use for medicinal purposes. My plant types are Bromeliads and carnivorous plants among other native stuff, Oh , and mushrooms. What is the difference between mushrooms and toadstools anyway?

    I have found them (P.sub') all along the peninsula. Mostly coastal. Lets say from Shoram to Cheltenham. As for the Otway Ranges, sounds great,i love camping . I dont know if i could go on a Trip with strangers though .(if you know what i mean).I shall check the "chill space" forum and see if it is up my alley!.

    Yes definitely suburbia. Although now there has been a lot of changes to the old stomping ground. The council have been clearing trees etc.. totally destroying the old habitat. There are still some around in parklands ,picnic grounds and that but I would like to go picking somewhere isolated . Maybe the mushrooms would have a different story to tell!

    Cacti-bug?. I wasn't sure, you know, with all the photos of cactus. Any thing like 'san pedro'? I have a lot of new stuff to learn and I am really enjoying reading the forum and peoples recounts of their experiences while under the influence. I didn't think that mushrooms could produce the same or similar effects as DMT,not that I have indulged in that as yet . I have an average camera so I will be taking it with me on my hike and post any good pics that I take. YEEHAA
