Namaste!

I made a post on the 17th november, remember my salvia mother plant?



Fully recovered she already has the need to offer more cutting! But I will leave her alone until march/april.
And suddenly she started to produce a third stem! I am happy.

Greetings

Dang man those are looking good. I remember the first time i tried Salvia. I ordered a ounce of leaf and 40 x extract. Now im a psychonaut and thought i was a hardcore one. So i made a little quid, or whatever it is called, and after a aboit an hoir i realized what i was feeling was a placebo effect so i made a bowl oit.of some aluminium foil, yeah i quit smoking MJ at the age of 22 or 23 as it caused me alot of mental ailments, bit anyeay i packed it hit like a champ. Holy Christ i habe never time traveld or warped like that before. I remember being sucked into the countertop, and just my head was sticking out and this wasnt a sensation this is really happening. Then i saw myself doing a weather forecast before coming back to reality raising my head up off of the countertop. Scared the shit out me but i loved the fact that i actually morphed with something. This ended up not being recreational for me and i only have done it a half dozen times. Most of my extract was given to me unsuspecting friends who knew nothing about it and some have never even tripped before. I think back now at it was cruel and irresponsible of me to do as a good friend wouldnt do this shit but i was a prankster but man alive i never laughed so hard at my friends before. I think a few even cried they were so scared. All described morphing with something and being in another place sometimes with people they know and sometimes not. I have yet to ever achieve this type of experience from any other psycho active including but not limited to LSA, LSD, DMT, and psilocybin. Maybe Salvia is closer to a psychotic like PCP. I have never tried PCP nor will i ever but whatever i felt on salvia was terrifying but yet remarkable and something i will always remember vividly.

Sorry for the OP for this post thats off topic and for hijacking if i did and sorry to the MODS for not postimg this over in the botany or trio report thread. It seemed appropriate at the time and i forgot all aboit the botanical thread. I use to love messing around with plants conducting crude extractions in my kitchen laboratory. I was out of control then! ;)

edit didn't show up so I am telling the pic on the right are san pedro from seed.

those are the best peyotes ( on the left) I have, though I have several others.

I am looking forward to them flowering and set seeds and put off pups in years to come.

good vibes to all that grow

thanks

Nice looking cactus Heirloom. It's all the alternative grows that fascinate me. 

 

Who would have thunk there's a world of undiscovered beauty out there, only requiring a brave pioneer space cadet to show us the way....

Today was wake up day. Temps are warming nicely, and everyone got feedings, trimmings, and prepared to wake up for spring /summer. Plenty of time was spent afterward, drinking of the energy, and giving blessings and thanks.

 

Here's a few peeks:

The Bridgesii Cuttings have recovered from being bashed in a shipping box, and have a new pup, and the crushed crown seems to be growing out now.

The cacti are waking up in the greenhouse, and plumping in the heat.

Lithops are splitting out of last years form with new plants in center feeding on old outsides

And the first flower for the year will be my Gymnocalicium.

Gymnocalisium first flower this year.jpg

 

Gadsby is glad to see the garden awaken

And Bubbles and Hazel came out of Hibernation for some fresh grass.

Bubbles waking.jpg Sleepy Hazel.jpg

 

The Wisteria has its first flowers forming,(bumble bee's will appear very soon)

First Wisteria.jpg

 

And the closest to snowfall I will see. The snowfall Azalia is ready to go full flower.

I spent some time in the light, with the Andara Crystal, which enjoys the breeze and sun.

It was a good day........................and the girraff elm tree got a haircut.

One I forgot above...........

This is "Weird Albert". This graft has had the most distorted shape, and the red color has been a constant for 2 years. The pups are normal, and getting so large I will need to re-graft them this year to allow "Albert to keep growing larger.

Sky, those are great pictures! I really like the glimpse of what I guess is your walled backyard. What growing medium are your Lithops in?

The Lithops do well in a standard cactus mix, a bit of aquarium gravel as a top veneer. The walls became a necessity for keeping out the coyote's and rattlers.......................

Also works as a wind block allowing micro-climate control.

I seem to get an inordinate amount of joy and satisfaction simply by observing the sun shining on my cacti. If I get home from work while the sun still shines, the first thing I do is go look...just observe the sunshine on my cactus'. During the weekend, I probably stop and gaze at them a dozen times a day...it's almost embarrassing when my girl friend catches me staring at them...

Only feed when the cactus is actively growing and warm. I use worm castings in spring, and a low nitrogen cactus fert called Shultz, which is a 2/7/7 monthly through the growing season. In all honesty, the same plant (a San Pedro) also grows at another location in the ground, and has never been fed in 30 years. It does fine, maybe not as fast in growth, but healthy and well established.

 

I have found the trich's to be fairly non demanding, as long as they do not freeze for extended time.

Glad to see your Salvia is happy, I have been trying to find one locally for a while but no luck so far.

I've got some M.H. seeds I plan to start this year though. :)

As usual getting my spiny friends into some new pots took forever. I hate bridgesii spines! Although I do like the appearance.

 

Anyway must get some better pics done as and when some flowers appear and the mutants grow some more.

 

Happy summer all!
