P.Viridis in trouble & Caapi ?stretching
rupi posted a topic in EthnobotanyHi all, I'd really appreciate some advice... Most of my Viridis and Caapi's are happy and healthy.. but the tips of the leaves of one of my newest PV - DX10 are browning off (see pic). I only potted him 2 weeks ago, and I did add a bit of seaweed/fert - have i burnt it? I used the same pH 6 soil mix for three others and they are doing ok. Maybe the soil is too soaked? Its quite wet when i put a finger in the the drainage holes. Should I repot? I don't think it looks like bact/fungal infection - no need to chop the brown bits off? Also one of my tucanaca Cappi went gangbusters and grew from 20 cm to 1m in a week or so - I'm wondering if she is 'stretching for light' - the distance between nodes is almost 30cm. I've removed some of the shade cloth from the greenhouse roof - but all of the other Caapi's (including another tucanaca) with identical light/heat/humidity/soil conditions are still about 20 - 30cm...why has this one decided to walk towards the light? Cheers!

Caapi & Viridis: Looking for tips on dealing with pests & growing
rupi posted a topic in EthnobotanyHi All, I'm new to ethnobotany and to this community, and am trying my hand at growing some caapi and viridis, I've got a few varieties of each. I'm in Melbourne and have set up a greenhouse. My temps range from 14 - 36c and humidity from 60 - 80%, I've lined the inside with 70% UV block shade cloth, and some lattice for the vines to climb. All the plants are still in pots, when the weather warms up a bit I will transplant the caapi into the ground. I'm getting some good growth from my caapi's, but I've got a problem with ?aphids (see pic attached) I tried some appropriately diluted eco oil on one of the caapi plants, but it killed off all the new shoots and baby leaves. I've ordered some Green Lacewing bugs in the hope they will get the problem under control. In the meantime I'm just manually cleaning the leaves and squishing the bugs between my finger, but I can't get into all the little nooks and crannies. Does anyone have any other suggestions to get rid of these things? My Vidiris on the other hand are showing no signs of growth. I've got Chacruna and UDV. I know they are slow growers, and I didn't have my greenhouse setup when I got them, so they had to endure some very cold nights, I'm worried the cold stunted them. The leaves they have look healthy enough, but no new growth. I'm working on getting some Nexus and DW10 variants, in the hope they will be a bit faster growing, and more cold tolerant - and can go straight into a nice cushy greenhouse. Any suggestions of breathing some life into my Vidiris? This is what I've put together so far on each plant; Caapi; Sun: Part Shade Cold: Variant dependent - die at 4c, like min 15c night temps and day temps of 24c for growth Soil: Humus Rich, moist, well draining soil - needs root space (prefers ground not pot) Water: Thirsty plant - can be watered daily Fertilizer: Plant is a heavy nitrogen feeder - Fish Emulsifer pH: 5.5 Humidity: Likes 90% Pruning Info: 50g / 1ft long 1" thick section. At end of growing season, not from the bottom 3ft of plant. Vidiris: Sun: 70% shade Cold: Doesn't tolerate well Soil: Loam Rich, moist, well draining soil Fertilizer: Seaweed - Maxicrop pH: 5.5 Humidity: Likes Pruning Info: 50g fresh weight of mature leaves at sunset Does that seem about right? I really appreciate any feedback or tips to help me along the first few steps of this beautiful journey. Cheers!
DMT levels in a Psychotria Viridis leaf over a 21 hour period
TheMooseZeus posted a topic in Pharmacology, Chemistry & MedicineThis shows that the best times to harvest P. viridis are 6 am and 6 pm. (Sunrise and sunset) I was wondering if we could correlate/compare data such as the activity of insects in a 24 hours period or humidity percentages etc. (bearing in mind that this plant was in the jungle) Original source - https://pdfs.semanticscholar.org/221d/facd7adfa3947e46cd101764a3d25e9da678.pdf?_ga=2.40171938.1492583384.1526295629-1998647047.1526295629 Pic was taken from the Herbalistic instagram

Growing B. caapi in pots
3lliot posted a topic in EthnobotanyI have some B. caapi which I've grown to about 2 feet tall in an indoor growbox. I've decided (what with the new legislation) that I'd like to move them outdoors onto the balcony (Sydney Eastern suburbs), just to attract less curiosity from visitors like estate agents, cleaners etc. What I plan to do is pot them in some decent-sized pots, and give each one some vertical trellis to climb up. I have a big (6 x 6 foot) trellis which I'll chop up vertically into 5 or 6 strips, and fix each strip to a pot, which will make the plants more portable if I decide to move (rather than having them all grow up one big trellis). My question is though, what's the best way to keep them nice & compact? I don't want them growing long & stringy up the trellis, because they'll run out of climbing space pretty quick. Should I just prune the top buds off? or would it be better to train them to grow around the trellis in a spiral? Also, the balcony is right on the ocean & gets very salty at times. will this be an issue? I have some tropical chillis (trindad scorpions) on the balcony already, they're fine. They did go fully dormant & lost all their leaves over winter, but they're growing back nicely now. Also also, I'm thinking about moving my P. viridis out onto the balcony - I assume they'll be ok as long as it doesn't freeze, but should I make sure they don't get full sun? has anyone grown viridis in full sun outdoors? cheers -E
