any Aussie here that can sell some of their spirulina culture,
I left all of mine to die about 5 years ago when I moved house ... well I hoped they would keep on living in the pond .. as they took over the fish tank easily , it seems they did not do as well in the pond

*edit* face palm of cause our winters killed it ponds not heated

apart from that I will be ordering 4L from the USA
I aint going to pay $1 / ml from the CSIRO I can tell you that much ...

any others in oz interested I will gladly hand out small amounts of startup culture

Customs is apparently stopping cultures coming into AU


so onto the next supplier


as their is interest I might just do CSIRO and be done with it

the stuff multiplies fast enough as gtkmarine,Yavimaya showed interest first they can have it for the price of shipping
at least if I kill mine hopefully someone else can return the favour :P

what's the cheapest postal method these days I believe they scraped 250g satchels leaving only 500g
from memory a box 1x1x1 cm 10 grams cost about $7 to the next town .... while 500g satchel $8.25 AU wide ...

Post subject:  Re: Spirulina

really? but the further away from the radiant heat the cooler?
its the principle that arabs use to survive the deserts, can be 20c cooler on a camel as far as i remember hearing.


hopefully there is a reply, as i said i havent really been on shaman much, i didnt even realise i had 28 posts there. lol, so i wouldnt hold out too much hope that they would help us out, even though they do seem like a nice community.

..
Just a silly question..
Given that I can purchase a kG of processed powder for $150 and that is a massive amount of dead organisms, why would you go to the cost of setting up a grow facility and pay the growing costs..

Ie.. is a dead organism not as good as a live one..
