    Outdoor grow tip for Aussies

    Hey I have discovered that certain species of fungus grow amazingly well outside in Scotts Osmocote 50L Premium Potting Mix that you can get from places like Bunnings. It's the stuff in the orange bag. I mixed spent substrate with the potting mix to use as mushroom compost. I did this in pots and in the ground. Some time later there were flushes of HUGE mushrooms. I then tried using colonised grainspawn instead of spent substrate from trays just to play around. I mixed some of the grainspawn into the top layer of 30cm pots containing chillies and added some of the fresh potting mix on top. After a short period I got fruiting, including some big, fat ones from just the 30cm pots. In addition, tropical mushrooms have been growing in cold outside conditions when the aforementioned happened, However, the ones that fruited in the colder conditions were in areas where there was some sunlight which would have heated up the soil in the ground and pots. Furthermore, I really noticed how mycelium can be used to prevent erosion since it helped keep the soil together in places in my garden where water might dislodge it. I hope this helps you. Cheers

    Coir works well or mixing in mostly spent substrate from trays or monotubs. Mix that through the potting soil and you're good.

    Tabernanthe Iboga Fruit GIVEAWAY

    I really want to get my hands on iboga and then propagate it using tissue culture. I've been looking for journal articles on the recipes and techniques used for the micropropagation of iboga.

    Caapi response to cold

    My original caapi vine came from a humid climate and then I grew it in Perth where the humidity isn't that high and it can drop rather low in Winter. The vine did just fine outside.

    You can also use little propagation chambers that have vents on top of that heat mat. Bunnings and hydro shops have them.

    Cloning setup

    Isn't the chance of cloning khat really low? If I tried to clone it I'd probably try air layering. However, plants produce bulk seeds and they're easy to grow.

    Banisteriopsis caapi cultivation notes and discussion

    My rooted cuttings are in coir. When they're ready to be transplanted to a bigger container then I use Baileys 25L Premium Potting Mix which is $10 from Bunnings. I add perlite to help with drainage, aeration and to prevent compaction of the soil. If you want the soil to hold more moisture then you could mix some coir into the soil and perlite mix.

    Yeah, I got my heated propagation chamber out of my storage room and I might use it for my iboga cuttings as I head into Autumn. It's still warm here though at the moment which is handy.
  13. Hi What is the general consensus on price per cm for trich cuttings such as san pedro super pedro "standard" T bridgesii Eileen T bridgesii Standard T Peruvianus KK242 T Peruvianus Any other info that you think would be handy would be much appreciated. I've been out of the scene for a while. Also, how much should one pay for lophs and their seeds in the Australian places where they're legal?

    Wanted: lophophora williamsii seeds

    How many seeds are usually in the fruit pod and how much does they normally sell for?

    Wanted: lophophora williamsii seeds

    Do ants or birds ever steal the little fruit pod of seeds from your plants?

    Townsville tricos

    Are trichos legal to own in Queensland? I remember this thread about the bloke who had to go to court for having trichos in his back yard:

    Trichs now not allowed on eBay?

    There's still Scumtree and FB Marketplace otherwise just get creative with the names so you don't trigger the ban.

    Best/Worst Coco Coir brands for bulk substrates?

    Hey, just an update. Richgro doesn't make small bricks of coir any more. However, if you use the bucket tek to pasteurise your coir then I've found that using 4.5 litre of boiled water instead of 4 quarts helps to make sure that the Brunnings coir is less likely to end up with dried, unpasteurised bits that are reluctant to break up. Furthermore, the extra water keeps the temperature higher for longer and your substrate will have plenty of moisture whilst fruiting.

    Banisteriopsis caapi cultivation notes and discussion

    Hey, I decided to try to strike some caapi cuttings in a glass of water. I can say that it works. Fertiliser wise I'm a big fan of Charlie Carp because it helps make use of an invasive species and I can use it on fruit and veg, orchids, natives and cacti without the risk of burning them. Edit - Maybe if I'm not lazy then I'll take some photos of the caapi cuttings in the water. They're inside where they're sheltered and I'm using a 130 watt fluorescent grow lamp which is what I often use to strike cuttings with.

    Cloning setup

    A glass of water under a fluorescent light or next to a window often works well when making clones via cuttings. Just change the water regularly. The good thing about striking a cutting in water is that you can see if the cutting is growing roots. If you don't have a mini growing chamber to keep in the humidity and/or heat when it's needed then soft drink bottles work well as cheap humidity domes. When you need to harden off the plant then you can take off the bottle cap before removing the bottle completely later on.

    Damping off.

    A heated propagation chamber or heat mat can help dry the soil out quicker as will giving the medium more access to light and fresh air. Furthermore, if you use perlite then the soil will be less soggy. Coir won't become mouldy as quickly as soil so you could use that depending on what you're growing, otherwise a soil that has more sand and some perlite added will help with drainage and aeration. What are you growing that's having the fungus issue?

    Australian Olive Vendors

    I go to an Italian grocer but I too am a fan of the chilli and garlic olives from Woolies. If you have any orchards near you that make their own olive oil then I highly recommend trying to get some olive oil through them. The farm I normally get mine from is out because the trees tend to fruit in cycles like avocados. I bought some olive oil from the supermarket and felt so disappointed.
