withdrawl clinic posted a topic in Australian Native Plantslet's hope I manage the upload (i'm not a good pc clicker). I went to one of my magic places yesterday (Hanrahan) and could not find any crocodylus johnstonii tracks, as I spotted them before. but I spotted, what me thinks, is one of the native Tabaco. maybe somebody can help to id, thx. dam, I jinxed myself, says failure to upload... my pic has 5.7mb, do I have to reduce the size? thought improofed software no need to do this. pls help, if you can. ok, I can upload to chill gallery, so I will try to upload to native plants gallery, sorry for the mess (said with Hahn solos voice).
Giving away: Nicotiana Rustica, Syrian Rue & a lot of Psychotria Viridis seeds
Entheogenic garden posted a topic in Seed & Plant SwapsThis is just to give back (in a small shitty way) to the community that I've lurked in for so long. Don't worry about postage guys it's sweet, I reckon I should split the syrian rue/nicotiana seeds for 2 people & there's enough viridis for like 4 people? Just PM me with whatcha want. Cheers guys!
Traditional tobacco curing techniques
Anodyne posted a topic in EthnobotanyThis question came up in discussion and I realised that I have absolutely no idea how tobacco has been cured traditionally, or if it even was. My research hasn't turned up much except variations on modern curing techniques. Does anyone know how it is/was done? I've read of tobacco being used in aya ceremonies and so on - but always about how it is used, never about how it was prepared. Someone told me that some South American people dry the leaves in the smoke over an open fire, which sounds like it would make an interesting product, and I read that other countries just dry them out in the sun, but these methods seem very different from modern commercial curing which needs high humidity and a long aging period. I suppose I'm wondering if the idea of slow-fermented tasty tobacco is relatively modern, or if there are traditional equivalents?
Heya family, I haven't been smoking the tobacco generally available for health reasons I believe relate to the radioactive super phosphates and the concurrent radioactive isotopes which transferred to the plant seem to become more bio-available when combusted. After about a year or so I feel like i am ready to start working with this plant ally again although this time I would like to make sure it is grown in a healthier environment. If anyone had viable seed for any species they enjoy smoking I would love to offer you some special goodies or money in exchange. Thanks in advance, Much Love~
