Kratom seed pod viability success

Sent a friend of mine some of my kratom seed pods. He said he's getting 50% viability from 6 month old kratom seed pods. These seed pods came from fully mature American kratom trees. He said he just followed my instructions

Mealy* Bugs on Mitragyna

Hi everyone! I've been quite inactive lately, moving between a few jobs and getting busy with life and holidays. I looked in my tent after ignoring it for weeks and weeks, finally to give it some water for the first time in four or five days, and i noticed something distressing! 


The white splotches and the brown domes/globules shown are actually two different stages of the same type of Pseudococcides, Mealy bug, or possibly Coccides, scale bugs. Apparently they are difficult to identify, difficult to remove, and are often confused for fungal infections. I thought it was fungal at first, but further research reveals they are a common insect pest of Rubiaceae. 

I watered my plants before realizing, but will probably try to apply light neem oil spray soon. Additionally, physically picking and removing bugs, wiping away with qtips and isopropyl, or spraying off with water are also options. I'm mot super fond of neem since it has a propensity to burn stomata when humidity is high or sun is up. I might go purchase some spinosad for this purpose. 

Check your plants! Stems, nodes, under and over leaves. Pests take many shapes and forms, and require different remedies. 

Bonus pic: my LED light heats up and is killing gnats and flying pests like male mealy/scale bugs. Who needs sticky tape and poison when you can harness the burning power of the sun? 😉

A modest but healthy & organic Turmeric harvest.

I only got a few pounds, but that's twice what I harvested last year. It's a great organic potentiator for Kratom.  Pretty flowers too. Usually available at whole foods stores or Asian markets. A handful of little 'bulbs' is only a dollar or two, and can plant a large area of beautiful plants with magnificent leaves and white orchid-like blossoms in late summer.

Faster than weeds!

These grow faster than weeds. I'm now thinking about making some clones via vegetative propagation.  They are only 2months out of their red solo cups and one month out of their 6 in inch pots! Faster than weeds.

Vietnamese, Malaysian,  Thai, and Indonesian ... allegedly.

My aphid problem may be solved!

So I asked on @Richard-Atchley post yesterday if anyone knew where to get ladybugs (thanks Richard for the eBay link) and when I went to water today I found these guys under a leaf. Hoping a few more show up.

Missed by a (P)inch.

I missed the complete terminal bud, at the node, when I pinched an immature terminal bud. I didn't quite get it all. At least I have 3 NEW branches. Live and learn. They are getting nicely bushy, which is what I want. I can't climb a tall tree.

The photos uploaded to 95% quickly....then they stayed that way for 3 minutes, so I don't know what went wrong here. Sorry.
You didn't miss much anyway 😁
