How to Grow Trichocereus Cacti from Seed

This entry is part 9 of 9 in the series Psychoactive Self-sufficiency

When followed correctly, this tek is an almost totally “set-and-forget” way of growing Trichocereus cacti & other species from seed (or even leaves, in the case of Psychotria viridis).

‘Dead & Buried’ (1981)

This entry is part 10 of 10 in the series Halloween Horror Movies

‘Dead & Buried’ is a creepy and suspenseful American horror from 1981, originally declared by UK censors in the early 1980s to be a ‘Video Nasty’ (although it was later acquitted of obscenity charges). The film comes with an excellent pedigree, being directed by Gary Sherman (responsible for ‘Poltergeist III’, ‘Raw Meat’ & ‘Vice Squad’) & written by Dan O’Bannon (director of ‘The Resurrected’ & ‘The Return of the Living Dead’; writer of ‘Alien’, ‘Dark Star’, ‘Lifeforce’ & ‘Total Recall’) and Ronald Shusett (writer of ‘Above the Law’, ‘The Final Terror’, ‘Freejack’ & ‘Total Recall’)…
