Lagochilus Inebrians Turkistan Uzbekistan Intoxicating Mint Seeds
Packet of 10+FRESH seeds!
This is the real deal folks!!!
The plants pictured are the plants I have grown and the seed I am selling is from those same plants. I am not wholesaling some old illegally imported rubbish.
It is also not that larger seeded stuff that produces the “Curley Dock” looking, strap leaved plant. (Possibly Lagochilus cabulicus?)
Don’t worry, I too have been caught out and bought that stuff in the past
After a lot of stuffing around (and a hell of a lot of lost $ and time) I finally got my hands on some legit seeds, and I have been propagating heaps of them here ever since then.
Up to about the great great grandkids of those seeds, they all breed true to form and as described.
So excited about being able to offer these ones for sale, and I’m only doing it because I have heaps now. More than enough to be honest.
They are the real deal, as you can tell by my pictures of the seed you will get, and the plant it grows into.
Here is where I sell LAGOCHILUS INEBRIANS HERB and this is where I keep some other INTERESTING HERBS.
Lots of literature available online about this versatile plant especially in the “Ethnobotanical forums”.
I’m finding it’s quite easy to grow, despite what others say, provided you have FRESH and CORRECTLY ID’ed seeds as I do, and just using a light sandy potting mix.
Plant a maximum of 2mm deep, NEVER DEEPER! (I did a lot of testing with these guys, and planting 4mm deep, resulted in a 0-12% germination rate!)
I’m getting 40-90% strike rate. (1part sand, 1 part really old composted cow manure, 3 parts black and gold potting mix. That’s it)
I water daily until they come up,(~3weeks average) then every second or 3rd day after that. Once they get 6 sets of leaves I cut it back to weekly, or if they wilt.
I pinched this Data online>>>
“Lagochilus inebrianshas long been used for its intoxicating and sedative properties by Tajik, Tartar, Turkoman, and Uzbek tribesman. The species name Inebrians refers to its traditional use as an inebriant.
It is traditionally taken as a tea, but other methods of ingestion are also reportedly quite effective. The tea is usually sweetened with honey or sugar to make it more palatable.
Alternatively, it can be steeped in alcohol to make a tincture (vodka works fine for this). Less herb is needed per dose when it is taken as a tincture because alcohol is more effective than water at extracting the active constituents. The effects of the plant have been largely attributed to the diterpene lagochilin. The closely related compounds lagochilin-3-acetate and lagochilin-tetraacetate are also present in the plant and might contribute to the overall effects. This herb also has hypotensive properties (i.e. it lowers blood pressure). Like Salvia divinorum, this is one of the few members of the mint family (Labiatae) that is traditionally used as an inebriant. The most commonly reported effects include relaxation, euphoria, and subtle perceptual changes…..”
Very aromatic plant, cool looking flowers and furry stems.
Grown organically by me and the Mrs, no chems, no nasties, no dramas!!!
