thanks dudes!  if you don't mind me asking why did people try to censor you?  it doesn't make sense to me even with the phallic similarities of some of your grafts.

Seriously though, there must be some specific issue.  some moral perspective I'm not aware of.

sure.  sorry.  i just can't understand why there is need for censorship.  i wouldn't have said anything if you hadn't hinted at it.  the seedlings in this thread do not belong to me.  as for my seedlings… they will be grafted.  as for how? ..i'm pretty pumped about learning your method.  my grafts look nice so far but grow slower and less efficiently than yours.

Grow Log Update- the seedlings definitely need some tlc after I slowed down watering for quite a while to rid the soil of an overwhelming fungus gnat presence. Gnats seems to be disappearing and I will attempt to revive/transplant any remaining seedlings shortly, with pictures to follow. I've been really wrapped up in getting a new site up and running, my plants must feel very neglected. Please check it out if you're interested in kratom aka Mitragyna speciosa: http://kratomsalescanada.com

i wonder if shallower pots would help with the gnat issue?  they would dry out quicker between watering at least.  kratom is an interesting plant indeed but i worry about it's addictive potential when used with western ideology.  it's getting some bad publicity lately- a recent suicide the parents have attributed to kratom…  i'm sure there were other factors but this will not help PR.

Greatness is not understood. Anne has some wild ideas and puts picture proof with it. Some people still deny her, and say she knows nothing. She tells them off and puts more picture proof. People get offended because cacti should not grow in hydro, and censor her work further. Banishment occurs and she continues her work moving onto a new home.

I was censored and banned myself for my beliefs and thoughts...it happens. Good news is, I found Anne. She inspired me, and now I get to learn from her in real time...instead of years behind her posts.

lets try and keep threads pure and topical..

the answer here is to start a special thread for general " legend " stuff in another section.

Gteting this thread up from the dead...

Im planting someloph seeds very soon; I was wondering waht your takes on it are...... Last timemine died pretty quick.

Ps and unrelated:

Kratom has helpedme tremendously with staying away from harder stuff which it ahs been 6 months since i  last went to the land of nods.

Anne is clearly brilliant and yes brilliance is ussualy not understood; i know from experience... and i would rather it not be understood

ok anne,

i cant't remember if I've made a thread or post on this but sould the sand be any different for germing lophs? I know how to germ reg trish using sand open air and misting with distilled water a few times a day, you taught me that.

on the flipside i have an excess (for me and the space i have) amount of trich seeds so i AM doing a side by side of open air vs closed with a plastic lid. couple lids have holes the others dont. If they germ quicker then as soon as theres some decent amount of gree, maybe 1-3 days after first sign of germ/green i will take off cover and go back to open air.

anyways main thing is, ppl say not to use beach sand or "play" sand but thats al i can source around here it looks like and i used to play sand onthe bridge seedlings and they germed and are growing well. the lophs i had in the same dish germed grew a bit and died. thinking maybe the sand wasnt porous enough for them to set down roots

Nature has it's way of doing things. Seeds just germinate at different times for different reasons. Light is a big one, as there might be a pebble blocking a bit of light, or a seed may have a little more cover. As far as I know L's are in that area between needing light to germinate and also needing a tiny bit of cover. They are in between, which actually is a quality nature has built in for tough conditions. I've grown a lot of different types of seeds over the years, and some can't really be covered at all, needing light and lots of humidity. The cacti are about as highly evolved as plants get, and these little differences insure some diversity. I lost a few of my babies recently, as I had to leave here, and have wood heat only, so they had their light but without the heat, most likely produced the right conditions for fungi spores to germinate. I didn't sterilize the soil, so this was bound to happen. The rest are seeming healthy and happy. I just raised my light a bit, as I'm learning how this new Super Nova LED light system works. The infra red part of it's spectrum is great for germination, getting the soil nice and warm, and all were quick to sprout. It was too bright, but since giving them some shade, and raising the light the first time, they are getting the right color, an some are really looking like fine little cacti. I've done this a number of ways over the years, using a greenhouse etc., this time being off grid, needing low watt usage. I've decided to move to Arizona, so I'll be like a kid in a candy store when I live in cacti land! Happy growing! Oh yes, I mixed a little slack lime in my water, which raises the pH, which fungi don't like.
