Live Visionary, Kratom, & Teaching Plants

 
We carry a complete line of live plants that have a rich history of use in Shamanic traditions and cultures around the world.  We're so committed to offering live plants that we are in the process of upgrading our greenhouses, and will have vastly expanded our plant offerings by mid-2008.  We not only take great pride in cultivating only the highest grade specimens, we specialize in strains that are difficult or impossible to find anywhere else.  One example is our TWO strains of Kratom plants (Mitragyna speciosa):  One is the coveted and very potent Rifat strain (which is also what Maeng Da Kratom is made from), and the other is a strain that has become known as BumbleBee.

We, of course feed our live plants organic nutrients only, specially blended to optimize alkaloid production.  Please note that while growing any of plants we offer is completely acceptable and legal, cutting, extracting, drying, or making some of them into teas or other magical concoctions or potions can be illegal.  Please know your local laws when making plant purchases.  With that, we offer our plants for botanical specimens only, as beautiful additions to any Shaman's Garden for education and research, and to add very beautiful and specific energy to whatever space they're in. 
 
We adore all of the botanicals, entheogens, and ethnobotanicals we offer here at the shop, and dream of someday having live plants for every one of the entheogens we offer here at the shop. Until then, we offer what we have space for, and slowly add new plants as we can cultivate them and make room for them.  We do offer a complete line of seeds found in our Seed Bank section of the website, which also has many links to informative articles about growing your own plants.  Most seeds we offer are viable, and since we carefully store our seeds in cool, dark, airtight places (fridges), as well as rotate our stock on a regular basis, you have the greatest change of getting your seeds to germinate when purchased from us.
 
Growing your own ethnobotanicals can be an extremely rewarding experience, and we sold thousands of Salvia divinorum plants until they were made illegal in many states and other places in the world.  We do the same for every other plant we can get our hands on because, like the folks at www.entheology.org, we passionately believe in the preservation of these plants to help keep the sacred knowledge of visionary and teaching plants from slipping into history.

Kratom plants are actually fast-growing trees that produce large leaves even as  seedlings. Kratom is an herb with an unusual history of being described as both a stimulant and depressant while at the same time posessing the chemical structure one might expect of a psychedelic.  But, Kratom plants are an easy plant to grow (See this How to Grow Kratom article), and the rewards are many.  In Thailand, they say it used to help get the workers through the day as it calms the mind, but that is also provided needed energy to accomplish any task that needed accomplishing.  It was also regarded as a much "classier" alternative to marijuana until it was made illegal and punishable by death in its native country. (We are only quoting a source, and do not make any attempt at comparing this plant to an illegal plant whatseover).  We take great pride in the Kratom plants we offer and guarantee that every one will arrive alive and in good health.
 
The bad news is that our present supplier proved to be quite unreliable, and since customer satisfaction is of utmost importance to us, we had to stop carrying Kratom plants until a better supplier could be found.  We of course offer a complete range of Kratom products, and even manufacture (to our ulta-high standards), a new Kratom extract that is not only all-natural, its water soluble as well.  What does incense have to do with being soluable in water you might ask?  It makes for a more complete experience when working with aromatherapy, it can now dissolve in absolutes and massage oils for custom blends, and much more.

Here, we offer a little-known strain of Kratom plant reportedly from Vietnam called the "BumbleBee strain". Up until very recently this has been difficult to acquire and due to an unreliable supplier for this particular Kratom plant, we once again no longer have it at our shop.  When looking to grow Kratom plants, though, the Rifat strain stands out as the original, hardy, and easy-to-grow strain that most have heard about.  The Rifat strain is also known as "Red Vein", and although BumbleBee Kratom plants may appear almost indistinguishable from the Rifat strain, when placed side by side several things stand out that would separate it from the Rifat.

While the Rifat strain is known for it's red veins, the BumbleBee strain's  are a more vibrant red.  Whether this has any effect on the strength of this plant, no tests that we know of have been conducted to this date.  The leaves are also slightly lighter green than the Rifat, and also more glossy in appearance.This strain was reportedly originally grown from seed of Vietnamese origin, making it the only type of kratom available from Vietnamese descent, but as of this writing we have not seen any independent verification of this.
 
These plants are in 4" pots, usually with multiple branches or "limbs" already grown or forming, they're already well rooted and growing quite vigorously.  We take great pride in these Kratom live plants and guarantee that every one will arrive alive.

Are you interested to find out more about Kratom plants, as well as how to grow and cultivate them?  See the Kratom Plants article on the website of one of our affiliates called Kratom Shop.  It's an odd name since they don't actually sell Kratom, but it's an amazing resource for anything related to Mitragyna speciosa including extensive information of Kratom plants.

This giant vine has huge helical spires rise up through the steamy rainforest canopy throughout Amazonia where it is prized as among the most important of all shamanic tools. Our plants are are cloned from the prized "Cielo" strain, which are known for their hardiness outside of their jungle home. Give them lots of light and lots of humidity, and these lovely vines will flourish. 

As most who find their way to this section of the website already know, B. caapi is one of the two main ingredients in the magical medicine and religious sacreament of the Amazon Rainforest.  This is a great plant to have winding around anything it can find, much like the HBWR vine we also offer.  In fact, the two seem to vine off of each other, making for some interesting plant energy in one's Shaman's Garden.

These hearty Dream Herb plants grow like crazy and are relatively easy to grow.  And, nothing compares to harvesting your own fresh leaves for tea or for smoking.  Calea Zacatechichi (Dream Herb/Leaf of God) is a plant used by the Chontal Indians of Mexico to obtain divinatory messages through dreaming. Traditionally the plant was drank as a tea while a cigarette was smoked before bed, bringing relaxation and fluidity to mind and body, ushering in an easy and deep sleep during which the dreamer will find the gates to the dreamscape gently opened. 

These plants are carefully cultivated by a nursery that cares deeply about spiritual and Teaching Plants.  Please note that plants ship April - October, and there can be up to a 10-day wait for these Calea plants.

Hawaiian Baby Woodrose is a beautiful flowering annual with thick, silky green leaves. It grows easily in any windowsill or sunny spot outdoors. needs lots of room, as it's a viney plant!  We've had plants grow so tall, they reachpower lines, andcould possibly be part of the reason many feel this extraordinary plant should be considered an "invasive" plant. 

The plants we offer are from a rare strain on Hawaiian Baby Woodrose, known to contain a high alkaloid content and grown only high in the mountains of Hawaii.  The person who provided us with these plants for so many years died in 2008, so now we have clones of his plants and are the only ones who presently offer them.  We will preserve this strain and pass it on to as many customers as possible.

Just remember that Hawaiian Baby Woodrose plants do not flower until the second year, so no matter how fast or tall your HBWR plant grows after your purchase, it most-likely won't flower the first time around.

Native in Highlands from Mexico to Northern Argentina, Sinicuichi is an ancient divination plant, but one of the least known in the Western world. The natives believe that sinicuichi has sacred or supernatural qualities; they say it helps them recall past events back to pre-natal ones as if they had happened yesterday. WE have many verified accounts as well as personal stories into the validity of these claims, at least in relation to the Sinicuichi plants that one grows oneself.  Although there is still little research into what the active components are, it is widely beleived that these alkaloids are strongest when the fresh leaves are made into a tea, rather than dried first and then made into a tea.

Fresh Hemia leaves would be soaked in water and left to ferment in the sun for 2 days, making an intelligent, teaching, sun tea. The volume of water would be reduced, and each cup of the the resulting bitter liquid was drunk in one gulp.

We have teamed up with a gardener who has the sturdiest, highest-quality, and most lovingly cared-for kanna (Sceletium tortuosum) plants we have ever found. Of all the plants we have to offer, these kanna plants may be my personal favorite. Their appearance is much like that of miniature Aloe (Aloe vera) and, like aloe, kanna is classified as a succulent.

Kanna plants grow slowly, but the "petals" can easily be taken from the plant (within reason) and eaten fresh, made into a tea, or dried for use in an herbal smoking blend.

Kanna is a slow-growing plant, yet it will produce plenty of "petals" to keep you happy as it matures. If you provide it with plenty of surface area to grow (kanna likes to creep along the ground), its growth will pick up and you will soon have more kanna than you may know what to do with!

Leonotis nepetifolia, also known as Klip Dagga, is a species of plant in the Leonotis genus and the Lamiaceae (mint) family. While most other species in this genus are native to Southern Africa, L. nepetifolia is native to tropical Africa and southern India.  These Leonotis nepetifolia plants are a minimum of 5" tall and growing very quickly. This plant may grow to 6 feet tall, producing brilliant reddish orange, or even purple blooms extruding from a spectacular-looking spiky seedpod with serrated leaves up to 4" wide. It prefers full sun and will not bloom in shade.

L. nepetifolia (Klip Dagga) is very similar to L. leonurus (Wild Dagga or Lion's Tail.) The main difference is that L. nepetifolia's flowers sprout from a round prickly ball. It is also said that the leaves of L. nepetifolia are more stronger and much less harsh when smoked than those of L. leonurus.  While there are about thirty other plants in the genus Leonotis, L. nepetifolia and L. leonurus are the only two with historical Shamanic use.  Tribes in South Africa reportedly smoke the leaves and flowers of this plant.

These Dagga Plants take a little time to prepare for shipping, so please allow 1-2 weeks for delivery.  We only ship on Mondays and Tuesdays as well, to ensure the plant will never sit over a weekend.

We have teamed up with a gardener who has the sturdiest, highest quality, and most lovingly cared for plants we have ever found.  These Artemisia absinthum rooted cuttings are from the strongest strain of Wormwood plants we could find (they were taken from the Alpine Wormwood we offer as a dried herb).  Wormwood needs little introduction, and one of the best things about adding these plants to any
Shaman's Garden, is that they survive winters, so they will grow just about anywhere in the United States.

The Wormwood plants we offer are 5"-10" sprawling plants, and although these plants grow like gangbusters, we typically have a limited supply.
