the smell of A. courtii

Recommended Posts

A branch broke off an Acacia courtii during some rain.  
pulled it down and left it in a tree. It had already died and semi dried. 

Every time I walk past the tree the branch now hangs in, 
I'm greeted by that beautiful smell acacias have become known for. 

It seems to have fermented some, giving off that indole ish smell. 
live harvested shade dried stuff does not seem to have too much of that smell. 
but fermented courtii must pack a punch if I can smell it just walking past it. 

any one had similar experience?   thankyall!

@bio Interesting mate, nice observation with the indole smell. I've no experience in this field but hope to in the future.
I've just put these 10 courtii tubestock from communacacian in the ground a few days ago. I hope they all do alright :)

Take this link and scroll to the bottom of the page to the most recent post from Horus to see pics of his Courtii that are about 14 months old and pumping.

easily 3 meters tall probably 4. 
maybe 18 months old.  stem and leaves that have fermented as they dried smell like dmt. 
and I can smell it when it rains too. 
they look like they will be a lovely weeping willow acacia. 


I just want to capture the smell for a black soap.

That's unreal man, I love picture 3. They are getting so thick, very very nice.
Have u trimmed them much over the last 18 months or left uncut just to grow?

they were born from seed where they stand in bamboo chip mulch, which had a lot of blue shrooms in it, thankyou Winter. 
Not chopped anything.   need to tho, if you want a tree you can sit under. 
they droop all the way to the ground from as high as they can. 
Most acacias don't look nice, and you wouldn't really want to sit under one.
this one is the exception.  Please everyone grow this tree.

Nice trees and awesome growth. My courtii trees are in much rockier soil and cop a fair bit of wind so they're still getting established. The drooping pendulous branches really are willow like hey, especially with the narrow phyllodes.

Blooming marvelous. Good on you bio!
Thanking you muchly for the wattle porn & juicy info. I've got 8 planted in a row and two more in another spot. I look forward to prooning and shaping them like you say, maybe making a nice spot underneath.

Or even start a blueshroom patch underneath them too, as the area where they are planted is mulched with pinebark.
