Hey @pete2000 @peteypyro

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. 

mod

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.

Hi 5! That's the right idea. I'd love to swap some cuttings! 

mod

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!

@peteypyro do you have any pics of the differences? We have several types but I really don't notice a difference between them. 

mod

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.

Really enjoy seeing what you guys are up to with your own plants and progress. Let's find a way to work this in too.

to clarify you just have to wave the phone over the tag in order to load that specific tree in

mod

@will That is the high tech future. NFC/RFID or barcode tags. This here relic still uses pencils and a slide rule.  I can only hope to one day have enough trees to need such modern advanced logging technology.

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.  

mod

@Laurie you should thank @Steven-Vanover it's his group on discord. Will is working on getting a version of his group up over here on the #kratomapp

@Laurie lol it's funny you say that as we still haven't had a grand opening yet. We still haven't hit our email lists. 

mod

cool @guywithtrees!  Yes, a formal grand opening is a wonderful idea.  I’m never ready yet, lol 

You can post the date time and post a big red ribbon.  Let’s make it fun?  

mod

@Laurie

I love this idea. Absolutely will do.

mod

cool cool.  I’m not much for party planning, but virtual stuff is different and calorie free !  I’m stoked

mod

this was launch party for an online game I built back in 2010. We would customize the website and put out Christmas trees, lights, snow etc in game to bring home the festivities. Fun stuff

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 🤗

mod

@Laurie do you mean banners for our projects or banners from other vendors?

mod

@Laurie I’ve made 15 banners today as well :)

mod

Banners from 3 vendors 

mod

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 !

mod

@Laurie I think if that’s what it takes to get the ball rolling then it is worth it. Do you have vendors in mind. We can get that going asap

mod

@guywithtrees Not sure what you have in mind, but I’m more than happy to help out!

mod

@guywithtrees thanks, I’ll get the vendor banners.  Do you have specs I should ask them @guysithtrees?  Sorry if you’ve had to tell me this before.
