^..sorry if last post wasn't clearer (good to number pics for clarity, btw)
the first 2 pics in the top of the first suite on this page are probably A. complanata..

Hey every one!
Im from Vic in Australia, im currently getting organised to do a A/B extraction on an acacia species. preferably starting out with the more common floribunda acaia to my region.
as mentioned above a few times this spiecies can vary quite abit, and im interested to find out what this one is.
It is mid winter and this species is just begging to flower.










oldest trunk of same species.


same species but a younger branch.(beautiful)



it got pretty confusing at one point because there were quite a few and some had different trunks and phyllode structure.. but this is all from one of the kinds there.. it grew up to a mid sized tree, very bushy in places.
thanks everyone for having a look and any guidence. if this is no good i think i have fround some floribunda with the characteristics of most found on here (thinner phyllodes,hair, ect?) and will ask for an i.d then. but just got a really good vibe from this oneThumbs up

Peace&thanks

SpiceMind, looks like A. longifolia to me. Compared to floribunda it has broader phyllodes, a longer pulvinus and a consistent gland at the base of the phyllode.

Hey guys, looking to expand my knowledge of acacias aswell as other plants.
I am a complete newb and would love some advice and input Very happy

These were all found eastern Victoria.

1-

http://i1078.photobucket...95/xrush4/Acacia1-3.jpg
(I first believed was it was A.mearnsii but now considering something else because of the lighter coloured leaves/style, also found some fully grown ones just alot bushier. I found a heap of a.mearnsii but looked completely different from this lighter coloured one.)

2-

(different tree but same species?)

Spice mind, I think your on the money with floribunda for your latest photos. Definitely exhibiting the "pendulous" branches and most other floribunda traits.

Always hard to tell from a distance but #1 looks like Acacia baileyana.

Thanks spice sailor!
I had a good feeling about this one. and u just made my day as there are a few with a lot of snapped and cut branches.

I see you have reported a yield of 0.2-0.3 on this species? The pic in acacia information(feel free to continue this conversation there as I've asked a few questions anyway) of the golden oil looks awsome! Dmt and jungle spice in that oil? Is this from the Boil,basify,separate and the evap? And would you recommend bark or phyllodes?
Any way thanks again! And any infos always helpfulSmile peace

I agree with what bricklaya said above regarding photo 2. Vein structure plus sparse buds on the flower spikes are good indicators.

Number 3 Hard to tell for sure but my guess is southern form of melanoxylon.

Hey guys
ok so I was on a bushwalk the other day and I spotted this. was hoping that that it might be the right one. I know it's a little young but I'm pretty sure there's some more mature ones around or else I could wait til it grows a bit. oh it was found in the blue mountains area just near sydney if that helps - thanks in advance Smile

Hi All,

Fairly new to acacia plants, wondering if someone can identify this particular specimen.
I suspect Acacia Maidenii?? OR Longifolia?

This tree is in victoria.

Hi spacechick, not sure what you mean by the " right one". I will attempt to id the bi-pinnate species from your photo tonight.

BotanicalTripper, I think you have a classic southern form of Acacia floribunda in your image.

(Note the damage to trunk bark in areas) Please, all acacia researchers, do not obtain bark in this fashion as it can potentially result in killing the tree. For ethical harvest methods see the Acacia information thread.

Does the floribunda have much to offer? or simply not worth the time?

its quite variable. people have success with them, others don't. I have done about 15 attempts on various different trees which I believed to be floribunda and not one of them yielded anything other than a slight indole smell in the dish. Some of them I identified myself and could have been another species(though I am pretty sure they were) others were identified as floribunda by the council and yielded nothing still. Perhaps there are some non active genetic strains. its definitely a tree worth investigating though and people definitely have success with them

What should I be on the look out for bricklaya? in terms of variants.

To be honest, I'm not in this for the long haul...I'd like to take the voyage once, twice max. I find a learn a lot about myself through psychadelics.

This for me will be a similar experience - therapeutic. I do admire the outdoors and everywhere I look now I see so many variants of acacia its incredible how predominant they are.

There is a reserve nearby with literally 20 different specicies of acacia. I'll snap some over the weekend for identification as If I can find just a tiny bit of root bark (without detriment to the tree) to potentially translate into 1-2 journeys I'll be completely satisfied.

I've found two acacia in eastern NSW (Sydney), well at least I think that they are.
For those who don't know, it's winter here at the moment, so a lot of acacia aren't flowering at the moment.

Tree #1:
I think this might be floribunda?
This plant had long, narrow, pointed leaves.
The bark also had a tinge of red to it, I think? I was stoned off my tits at the time of taking these photos, but I'm almost certain the bark was reddish.






Tree #2:
Maybe longifolia, it flowers at this time've year, right?

Hey Hamilton bardwater, not sure on first tree. More close ups of phyllodes would help. Tree #2 I'd say your bang on with longifolia. Search the acacia info thread for info on desirable forms of longifolia.

Spice sailor.

What do we know about A. floribunda bark?

In one local garden, there are three acacias within 8 metres, which all look like floribunda to me. One of them is small and clearly appears to be a sucker from one of the others, so maybe all three suckered from the same individual. The biggest one and the smallest one have smooth bark. The middle one has several stems lopped off. The new growth is smooth stemmed but the lopped stems have deeply fissured bark.

Prior to this I'd seen a few other specimens around town, some with smooth bark and some with rough bark. Now I think it's simply a matter of bark becoming fissured after perhaps about 10 years. (The big, smooth bark specimen referred to above is about 4-6 m tall so obviously more than a couple of years old.)

One negative assay so far but they are all in bursting bud at the sec so waiting 6 months might be the answer.
