Hey @pete2000 @peteypyro @roadkill I was speaking to @Will, and we were wondering if you would like to join @laurie on our #kratomapp mod team. I know we talked a bit about this but we are having a lot of people coming on and want to be ready the wave. If you would like to as a way to say thanks we will send you kratomleaf from our trees each month. Also since you are all accomplished growers we were wondering if you would like to grow some cuttings from our trees. We were thinking of having you guys grow them and Keep half of what ever grows.
That's a great idea. I was thinking that we could also share cuttings, to ensure that we each have lots of genetically diverse Kratom growing on our respective grow sites, thus ensuring a future supply of domestically available Mitragyna Speciosa with as many genetic variations as possible. This would help ensure that quality product, quality medicine, would be available. This might protect us from the Scott Gottliebs in this world 😀.
I'm not sure that I'll be picking good stuff, like what Walter sent me last year, but I hope to get better at growing.
My 4 'mother' plants came from mytreesoflife.com, in Arizona. They are (allegedly) Thai, Malaysian, Vietnamese, and Indonesian. They look similar, but have small differences in leaf shape, etc.
That's all the provenance on them that I know. Maybe they have differentiating flowers but that's the future. I'd love to get a horned one.
I maintain correct tagging on them. I hope they aren't all the same, or weak. I have some hope left in this world that they are correctly labeled 🤔
Florida growers unite!
You may be right that some of the visible differences might be nurture rather than nature. To be sure, I will grow thousands of them, if need be, to find out. 😆
Seriously, I will look closer and document or photograph any significant differences. None so prominent as the horned leaf variety.
one of the cooler projects I've setup is qr codes to log each batch of trees, and individual trees to keep like a timeline in videos, pictures and text based updates.
Then to update progress you just scan it with the kratom app to pull up that plants timeline.
Hi @guywithtrees! I saw a post from someone on DISCORD announcing the website and practically cutting the ribbon on the grand opening! I’ll go look for the person, but yeah, thanks so much for asking the other folks to help. We all have stuff to do, but we gotta rock the house to start making you get some pay! I have only limited stamina, so I drop out for 3 days sometimes to recharge. It appears that I’m a flake but it’s not a lack of interest, just less stamina than other humans got issued.
I’m excited no matter how it is done, I think it will be awesome. @guywithtrees can I ask you to post about 3 banners from vendors for display at the party? Complimentary for grand opening? I might even sneak their banners for extra fun on the opening. Give it some thought. Y’all can do it however you want. I’m happy for the team 🤗
think on it, it would be small ones on the grand opening party page(s). Friends I’d be sorta embarrassed to not put up one or two
Think on it because I genuinely don’t understand the work needed for that. I’m hitting sheets. I’ll check in tomorrow! Looking BUSY WOOT WOO !
