Beautiful skunk!

I am sure the one set of white flowers are without doubt a passionflower.

Your lime looks great. I live in what was citrus fruit orchard once upon a time, but have been challenged to keep a lemon alive. The psilid infestation seems to get everything I attempt to grow, as well as the entire new crop of imported citrus diseases.....

Kids have been interested in growing some carnivorous plants, so we have started procuring some. This is our 1st to arrive. We have some other coming from a grower I've done some business with in the past. Looking forward to the 3 varietys of Pitcher plants to arrive.

What we would like to do with these is dabble and get our feet wet with Plant Tissue Culture propagating.

These things are vicious if left unchecked. Litterly hundreds of seeds per pod and when they Crack open they can shoot seeds pretty far. I have them popping up In every plant in close proximity.

Datura one of my favorite patio plants. With a few on a patio open at night the aroumas are amazing...

They like to open on the evening as well .

I carefully (or so I thought) removed the pods away and they’ve popped up on the edge of my driveway now . And I saw a single one in the corner of a field and I tried to carefully remove that one too . I gotta mow over there soon and keep it down. But I’ll be randomly driving and see them on the edge of a cornfield .

Lauren's grape cultivar

Well look who it is!!!.. Glad to see your still around! Been a long while... hope all is good with you and yours.

Been a while since I've been around these parts. Hoping to be around quite frequently over the next while.

I'm currently plugging away through your Agar threads.... For how many years I've dabbled with Mycology, I've never really taken the plunge into Agar. 2 weeks ago I was out garage sailing and hit up a Doozie of a yard sale. Little old lady selling off a wack load of canning supplies. Needless to say I left with a nice selection of Canning jars of various sizes, extra pressure cooker and all kinds of other goodies. This purchase nudged me to break out the mycology supplies and take a step further than my BRF grows.

Actually believe I'm working with a couple prints that may have possibly come from yourself or @wharfrat...
Falbino / A+Albino... believe some of these prints came from @meyer .. me and him joined around the same time and we traded quite frequently shaing prints & Plants.


The Laurans Grape are lovely. I've unfortunately lost that variety in my collection. But have some really nice varietys I'm still working with that I received from @Shadow_Wing way back when...

Though this was pretty cool.. This morning the son comes running upto me screaming 'Daddy Come Look' over snd over.. juat scratching. He leads me over to his personal favorite plant the Venus flytrap... and starts pointing look look. I look closely at the plant and it's trap is sealed shut, a live fly is buzzing around inside thw closed trap of this plant. With the light shinning through the plant you can see the outline of a trapped fly. Proceeded to spin the plant around and a once previously closed trap had opened up and the carcus/husk of a fly is visible.

Papaver Somniferum ---》 Raw Opium Extraction
13e19edb2001e805c2c06d8aeae4db4a.jpg
-Just a simple poppy pod tea extract using 40 grams of Powdered heads... and evaporate off for some raw opium tar. Not something I partake in very often but nonetheless nice to have In my magical tin of plant extracts.

The key I find to Making the best extract is to keep the alkiloids off the heat source. Bring water to a boil in a seperat vessel, then add enough water to cover plant material 1-2 inches Above in a seperat vessel. Let the tea steep for 5 mins while stirring occasionally. Filter material and do a second extract with fresh boiling water.

Some people like to simmer water down to the tar, I prefer to fan evaporate off water leaving the tar. No heat, no loss of product due to heat.. takes a while to evaporate though.
