Thanks for posting this; I've long kept a line of succession of Coleus plants after noticing the rumours of possible phytochemical content. This was bolstered by a possibly coincidental lucid dreaming experience after eating a single leaf, which also coincidentally fell off the plant when I woke up in the middle of the night.  Anecdotally, one plant that could realistically fit the description ..read more

I wonder if there are other cultivars, or wild non-cultivated plants, which have higher concentrations than the 'Electric Lime' cultivar that was used in this study. If so it's probably still very low amounts, still interesting all the same to see Salvinorin pop up in this species! Growing conditions also seem to influence concentrations. Ahh yes, Salvia recognita has some lovely flowers too! R ..read more

Very cool since there were some random reports of it being active. However you would need to have 40x minimum to have any psychoactive effects. Salvia recognita seems most interesting however the availability of coleus is very high and the colors are wild ..read more

I managed killing one once when 'helping' it out of the husk. Wait a good period of time and only attempt doing so once you're certain it wont happen naturally. The plant being more mature at this stage will also make it more robust. I found making sure the husk remains moist and pliable increases the seedlings chances to shed the husk by itself and also makes it easier for you if you do go dow ..read more

Sorry that this isn't aligned with your plan and question but IMO the best way to store seeds is to sow seeds. Some plants simply don't have any mechanism emabling their seed to remain dormamt and viable because they don't need to. We view this behaviour as the norm but maybe its better regarded a special trick some plants have come up with due to environmental pressures ..read more

A quick googlization will get you all the tek info you need, I'll try this on my third attempt. My first attempt which is what I posted here failed. I think it's due to not allowing the graft to re ..read more
