  1. I've got a Naga Jolokia (reconsidering if it really is one though, time will tell), Birds eye, Yellow cayenne (germinating) and a chilli that was given to me, not sure as to what it is.

    I'm planning on expanding the chili garden a fair bit this spring, will hopefully put down:

    Jalapeno

    Anaheim

    Aji panca

    Ancho

    Red cayenne

    Depending on how things go, anyway.


  2. Jesus, that sounds like it'd be rough on the seed haha.

    But to be honest, I'm really not sure where you'd find any sulfuric acid above 30% concentration.

    You could distill the 30% H2SO4 provided you had the apparatus, but honestly, I really don't know anywhere retail that will sell at a 98% concentration.

    However, I saw somewhere a while ago about someone saying that a particular brand of liquid drain cleaner is almost pure sulfuric acid.

    Here it is:

     

    I'm not sure whether you'll find that in Australia though.

    The other option would be buying a small amount of reagent grade H2SO4 online, I'll see if I can find you a site.


  3. Apologies is this is considered digging up the thread.

    I've been reading up on Coleus and I read somewhere that a mexican tribe referred to the Coleus plant as the 'male' and Salvia divinorim as the 'female' and they would make a brew from the two when they practiced their ceremonies. Due to the fact that Salvia D. is illegal in Australia, I looked into other species of Salvia and realized that I've got a strong Salvia coccinea growing out the back.

    From what I read, smoking Salvia coccinea produces a calming effect, which lead me to believe that there is an active alkaloid in the plant.

    But as with most plants that don't have much information about them, all you can do is hope and try.

    Two nights ago, I decided to give it a go and see what would happen. I gathered 40 or 50 leaves of S. coccinea and 10 leaves or coleus blumei and made a tea, which didn't taste nearly as bad as a straight coleus tea.

    About an hour later, I drove around to a mates, picked up some potent weed and and came home.

    After smoking 6 (I think) buds, I sort of blacked out/went into a dreamy state for about 6 seconds. I then got up, and started seeing visuals.

    I'll point out here that this was my first mild psychedelic experience, I've tried a small dose of psilocybin mushrooms, but only experienced a nice body load.

    The visuals seemed to be what looked like faces coming towards me constantly, I can't really explain it much further.

    Anyway, I went inside and looked at my floor, the dirt on the cement seemed to morph into small faces. I then hopped on my computer and noticed a distinct blurred vision.

    After about 5 minutes on the computer, I got up and looked in the mirror. I noticed that my mouth was almost completely dry, which was really uncomfortable and unusual, I never get dry mouth from smoking weed.

    I sat back down and closed my eyes. What was really interesting for me is that I was hearing noises, though I can't distinctly remember what noises they were, I can confirm that they weren't real.

    Anyway, From what I can remember, I saw a green tunnel that was bending as I went through it. About minute later I got up and

    vomited outside. I'm not going to go into detail here, but it was extremely unpleasant vomiting with a dry mouth.

    Afterwards, I went and got a drink of water and went to bed.

    Setting:

    - No THC tolerance (had not smoked in a couple of months)

    - At home, Saturday night

    - Cold and a little bit sick

    Effects:

    - Dry mouth

    - Anxiety

    - Mild/weak visuals

    - Music sounded great and had me feeling emotions

    - Hearing sounds

    - Can't remember much (probably the marijuana doing that though)

    I'm not going to repeat the experience anytime soon, as it was really unpleasant for me, but I will try it again one day.

    This definitely deserves some more exploration, I'll see if someone I know is willing to try it and tell me the effects that they experience.

    If anyone has the chance and is willing to do so, it'd be great if someone could do some research and exploration of the combination.


  4. If you haven't planted the HBWR yet, go easy on the watering when they're young.

    When I planted mine, a few rotted at the base quite badly. Despite my best efforts to save the ones that rotted only 1 has recovered and is growing outside alongside the healthy one.

    I've got them planted in a frost-free area with plastic around the outside in the hope to trap some warmth this winter.

    This being said, I'm not sure how hard Perth gets hit by the cold, so use your judgement. Once the HBWR get going, they can take a bit of abuse.


  5. Hey,

    I'm after a print of either Psilocybe cubensis, Panaeolus cyanescens or Panaeolus cinctulus. If anyone has any prints of any of them, give me a PM. I need them to finish my microscopy spore print collection. I can only offer money at the moment, and will pay anywhere up to $50 for a print, preferably via PayPal.

    -Any spores purchased will be used for microscopy only.

    Cheers.


  6. Fantastic finds Xipe.

    Apologies if this comes across as hijacking your thread, the name just seemed appropriate to upload the images.

    I came across these guys in my strawberry patch today, I'm tossing up between Laccareia amethystina and Clitocybe nuda, however I should be able to tell when the spore print is done. The scent of it is really remarkable, there's a strong orangey-citrus smell to it.
