2015 Australian Perpetual Free Trade Thread
El Presidente Hillbillios posted a topic in Seed & Plant SwapsHey guys and gurls, lets try the free trade thread again and see how it goes this time. HOw this works is you post somthing, a plant or some seeds etc. To give away to the next poster at your postage cost. By posting you take the offer above you. The next poster claims the offer by saying taken and then posting their offer. This goes on forever. For this to work you really must offer something and come through with posting it. previously this thread has failed due to people failing to post things asking questions breaking into conversations etc. If we all stick to the same format for the posts it makes the thread easy to read. Ill post a few post below so its easy to get the idea. Any questions please pm me *Australia only to keep postage managable and please no posts besides taken with offers* *All trades must be legal and within regular forum rules* Any other questions please pm me
[ENDED][GIVEAWAY] Fresh Kratom Seeds From Malaysia (Mitragyna speciosa)
MeanGreen posted a topic in Seed & Plant SwapsHey everyone, I was blessed with a large amount of very fresh Mitragyna speciosa var. "Green Malay" seeds coming straight from a Kratom farmer in Malaysia who harvested them. Someone I know is in direct contact with the farmer who sent him the seeds and he was kind enough to give me what I estimate to be at least a thousand of them. This is a rare opportunity and I'm very grateful. I haven't sown them yet but my friend already has many sprouts in less than a week. These are pic's from my last year's grow, Rifat seeds. Seed to propagation: This plant plays an important part in my life so it's important for me to share it. And what better place than SAB to share those, hey? Especially considering what I heard about Shaman Australis being the pioneers who grew out the seeds Claude Rifat brought back from Thailand, which gave birth to the famous Rifat clone. Any details on this? I'd love to hear more of that story @Torsten The farmer said he might be able to send more seeds of other cultivars soon as well. So I might do more of these giveaways in the near future. One is a strain they call "Urat Merah" in the Kuala Lumpur area, which the farmer said he thinks is the strain we call Red Vein Thai. Apparently we will receive those around mid-February. Another one would be seeds of horned kratom (sometimes called Maeng Da), he said a friend of his is traveling to Vietnam this spring and might be able to bring some seeds back for us. And finally, and I'm very interested in this one, he talked about a strain of kratom they call "Ketum Daun Jambu" which roughly translates to "Guava Kratom" of which he says the leaves are smaller than average but the potency is at least double that of other strains. Anyways, enough rambling, put a number between 1 - 100 down and I'll randomly pick 10 winners in a week or two. Please check if your number has already been picked, if two people pick the same number the first one will be the winner. The winners will get a pack of approximately 30-50 seeds of Green Malay, and I'll throw in some Rifat seeds as well which are starting to get a bit old (~10 months) but you might get lucky and have a few sprouts still. If by chance the "Urat Merah" a.k.a Red Thai seeds show up by the time the winners are picked I will include a pack of those as well.

A present for my SAB family! Trichocereus seed giveaway!
Evil Genius posted a topic in Seed & Plant SwapsHi guys, I´ll be giving away some free seeds to my SAB family members here! I´ll limit this giveaway to one type to reduce the the workload for labeling and packing. I´ll give away seed bags of my new Trichocereus pachanoi type from my shop on Trichocereus.net which you can see here. There will be another giveway with Trichocereus tulhuayacensis soon. It´s a beautiful type of Trichocereus that is very variable and can be totally spineless or very spiny. The seeds are fresh from 2015 and I´ll give away one bag per SAB family member. Everyone interested, please send me a pm with the title "Pachanoi giveaway" and your address, including the complete name and the country. I know that most are from Australia but I just want to make sure I dont accidentially send it to some missionaries in Yemen. Please write your address in a way that allows me to print the address on a printable sticker, so I can process this giveaway faster! With that I mean, just write it how you want it to be written on the letter and I´ll copy and paste that. I´ll label the seeds "Trichocereus pachanoi" and declare it as a "cactus seeds" and "gift". Which it is. I cannot use a different label, but it´s a permitted import and all the seeds I send are according to AQUIS and CITES. It´s very possible that seeds are opened, but that´s totally fine as they are perfectly labeled. Shipping can take up to 6-8 weeks because I´ll have to pack these in between processing my orders and doing EG-stuff. So expect 1-2 months delivery time. If nothing shows after that, just let me know and I´ll send you a replacement. So yeah, bring on the storm. Merry Christmas SAB! bye EG

Spring Cleanout GIVEAWAY
Cubism posted a topic in Seed & Plant SwapsSorting thru my seed stash for the start of spring and came to the realisation I have way more than I'm ever gonna get around to growing, or have the space to grow. So rather than leave them lying around gathering dust for a year, thought i'd give something back to you SABers. Unfortunately its gonna have to be Australian members only due to a lack of funds for international postage. Anyone who's interested please post just once below and I'll use a random number generator with the post numbers to pick a winner eg first reply will start at No 2 (post number) then onwards. There'll be 2 x First Prize, and 2 x Second Prize. So a total of 4 lots to giveaway. All items are seeds, no plants involved. FIRST PRIZE x 2 Acacia floribunda x 20 Acacia acuminata Small Seed x 20 Acacia acuminata Narrow Phyllode x 10 Phalaris arundinacea Turkey Red x Big Medicine x 50 Rivea corymbosa x 10 Capsicum annum mixed x 20 Hawaiin Baby Woodrose x 4 Trichocereus pachanoi OP x 30 Trichocereus bridgesii x Trichocereus pachanoi x 50 Psychotria viridis x 3 Lophophora williamsii x 20 Cereus hildemanianus monstrose cross x 5 Nicotiana rustica x 50 Heimia salicifolia x 50 SECOND PRIZE x 2 Acacia floribunda x 20 Acacia acuminata Small Seed x 20 Acacia acuminata Narrow Phyllode x 10 Phalaris arundinacea Turkey Red x Big Medicine x 50 Rivea corymbosa x 10 Capsicum annum mixed x 20 I'll finish it at midnight Friday 29 August east coast time, and post the results sometime next weekend. And finally, thanks to everyone who's sent me stuff through trades, giveaways or just the goodness of their own hearts. If you recognise some seeds then theyre most probably from you. Without this great community I wouldn't have any of these to giveaway to begin with.
Hot chili pepper seeds giveaway!
Berengar posted a topic in Seed & Plant SwapsHello everyone! Time for me to give something back! I've got two packs of the following pepper varieties to give away. The packs contain 20+ seeds of each variety, bhut jolokia I just recently bought so haven't tested it's viability, all others are from my grow and should have near 100% germination rate. (As far as I'm aware, pepper seeds are allowed into Australia, I have sent successfully before, but please correct me if I'm wrong.) Each pack contains: - Bhut jolokia (no explanation needed, you all know it and love it!) - Big Thai hybrid (short bushy plants, with lots and lots of small, fragrant peppers with habanero level heat) - Satan's kiss (short plants with beautiful upwards fruiting red pearls, very fleshy and tasty with heat similar to cayenne) - Russian roulette (a pepper very popular in Spanish cuisine as a tapas (Padron chili), most of the fruits are milder than jalapeno, but about one in 5 is hoter than a Thai! Even from the same plant.) - Cayenne pepper All you need to do is post here to enter, you'll each be asigned a number in the order you posted, and random.org will do the rest. The contest ends in exactly 48 hours, on Sunday the 11th, 12 PM GMT. Cheers!
Giveaway with a twist
tipz posted a topic in Seed & Plant SwapsI have decided to do a fun little giveaway. It will be interesting to see how much interest this stirs. I am not returning to trading, this is just a giveaway before I disappear into the izness. ( just waiting on settlement over outstanding trades ) AAAnyway...... I'm in the process of drastically downsizing my cactus collection. I have up for grabs in this little competition a very very rare and sought after plant indeed. I have a very healthy Eulychnia castanea V.spiralis. I have never seen one of these offered up for sale before. The plant initially showed discoid growth, which reverted to monstrose growth and is now pushing out some amazing spiral growth ( so showing all 3 traits of the eulychnia castanea's possible mutations as can be seen herehttp://www.google.com.au/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&frm=1&source=web&cd=7&ved=0CDgQFjAG&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.cactus-art.biz%2Fschede%2FEULYCHNIA%2FEulychnia_castanea%2FEulychnia_castanea_varispiralis_mostruosa%2FEulychnia_castanea_varispiralis_mostruosa.htm&ei=Oc6RUtSsJqnZigfj1YCAAQ&usg=AFQjCNGJ-HRHSTXVElV_v8igwZ86U_yI5A&bvm=bv.56988011,d.dGI ) The plant measures in at just under 50cm. I know of many collectors both here and outside of this forum who have been chasing one of these with no success for many years. Here is your chance to own one free of charge ! All you have to do is participate in a little game for my amusement. I have been researching a subject that a close friend brought to my attention. I'm sure that everyone here can recall the Port Arthur massacre down here in Australia. The biggest massacre from a single shooter on a civilian population on record in our Country. I had a few things brought to my attention from a close friend. He told me that he was completely certain that the events of that day were planned and executed by nefarious forces and in no way could it have even POSSIBLY been the work of Mr Martyn Bryant. Crazy right ? Now I have always been one to keep an open mind and have been known to entertain the possibility of seemingly outrageous claims of conspiracy and obfuscation. But when I initially heard his suspicions on the events that transpired that day I found it very hard to not instantly dismiss them before listening to his argument. I think that may be because - "if" in fact he happened to be correct the implications are quite frankly downright scary. BUT I make a conscious effort to keep an open mind that is decided on verifiable fact and try to use my rationale and intellect to draw conclusions on the event in question. So I found myself reading the work of a man called Joe vasilis and other concerned parties and quite frankly I was amazed at what I was reading. So... here is the comp guidelines : I'm going to provide a link to some little known info about that day and I want to start a little debate. To win this competition I want you to read the information I provided in the link below. The prize of this beautiful eulychnia will be awarded to the person who presents ( in my opinion ) the most convincing argument either "for OR against" this crazy crackpot tinfoil theory. The link that I provide is just there to get you started. By all means - research elsewhere and source your information as you deem fit. For the point of this competition lets say I am completely undecided. It could be ten words or it could be a thorough analysis - as long as it is convincing. Im very interested to hear peoples take on this and i am sure the prize will coax those that would normally brush over this post to perhaps have a bit of a read and a think about it. I will close the comp at 2200 EST 07/12/2013 - most convincing argument IN MY OPINION wins ! OK GO .... Here she is :D ( a bit of motivation for those not interested in crazy conspiracy theories ) the link-http://www.whale.to/b/viallspam.html
