Was gonna rub some pods together to help pollinate, but i think I’ll let nature handle it.Source
Question: What happens if I 'top' my kratom plant short?Answer: You'll possibly get a double trunked bushy kratom.... and during the summer, it will even have lots of leaves too! a nice thick bush. Easier for me to pick leaves from 😀 Source
Another youtube strike. This time for a live stream we did. No sales content in the video it was just a loop of 10 older videos as a test on how to do streams with obs.Source
Even the roses know it's gonna be a cold night out tonight. Might get down to near freezing
photo of the day, since its slow....
A rare sight, Petey in the kratom patch...
despite being pinched regularly (the plants, not me), they now tower over me.
the phalaenopsis orchids are budding... all 3 of them. 😀 I'll hide them under the kratom trees next spring.they should like the subtropical climate under the branches they are being 'forced' into bloom for the holiday season. Lots of phosphate fertilizer. Well, maybe just a pinch.... Source
ETA left lots of the older leaves on the ground. Time to get the leaf bagger on the lawn mower🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲
really cleared out the old and made room for the new flush of reddish autumn leaves.
awesome someone reported my video I spent 2 weeks making. My best video on my channel and I can't even appeal. I had 6k views on that video.
after Eta's first pass....
Lots of leaves to rake up for tea.
Thought I'd post on this slow-as-a-snail day
wow I'm shocked to find out I won the Appeal of the takedown of the 150 fresh leaf video!
What you get if you pinch every 3rd node...bushy plants... and a thick trunk full of buds... even if I cut it down, it will probably come back stronger, like a live oak tree. Source
Here are some new assets we had made that we are adding to the kratom avitar chat. What you guys think?Source
We are adding a drone to the kratom video game with some cool features. What do you think of the design?
These seeding are from 6 month old seed pods! A customer of mine just sent me this pic!
We had one of our Kratom trees drawn in pixel art for the Kratom video game. What do you think? Does it look like the real thing?
Shout out to: https://www.instagram.com/yuugenpixie/ for the work! She was really easy to work with and got the job done very quickly.
Free coffee grounds, used. Starbucks rocks. Great for free bug control that breaks down into rich volcanic soil.
The kids love it too...
... and they're coming up on their very 1st cloneday.
Oh, and I'd be remiss if I forgot the grandkids too...they love their photos to be shown too... Source
My father has been living with a bad back pretty well since he broke his neck at age 18. I have been insisting on him trying kratom for almost a decade. Finally here is my mom picking leaves for him to brew a nice tea. Pain management is getting more and more difficult as it is already difficult on the body and liver. He couldn't move without some form of relief. I am very relieved to have him open his mind to more methods of management. He still very much needs surgery, but thankful for a plant that helps him have a better every day💕 Does anyone else use this beautiful plant to manage their pain without fear of damaging your liver?

Figs are coming in now...and ripening... ... and these are coming up on their 1st anniversary. happy trees. . . ... and a tiny spider guarding this one. Source
Just sitting here wondering how kratom trees handle moves and how people go about doing that. If anyone has any stories on moving trees, successful or not, I would love to know of any and all experience with this.
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

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? 😉
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.Source
been a while since I posted any pictures, but it's been awhile since I've taken any good pictures, plus you can see that stupid fungus I'm dealing with
Here's my first go at forming copper onto a fresh leaf. Going to have my love play with the voltage and experiment with me further 💕 has anyone created anything with the leaves, flowers, branches, or seed pods? We are constantly doing arts & crafts and I would love to share more of what we create! My next project I would like to try is using resin to preserve for an eternity 🥰Source
