Psychotria viridis "Chacruna" Seeds in Berries
CLICK HERE - Growing Instructions & Detailed Plant Information
We offer our customers an opportunity to obtain 100% fresh viable Psychotria viridis seeds and you can be sure of this because they are still in the berry! Each berry contains between 1-3 seeds (usually 2). Shops have so much trouble offering viable P. viridis seeds because they do not stay viable very long, but we have the solution for that. In the berry itself there are agents that help to fight bacteria and other factors that cause the seeds to become dormant. These agents that fight off bacteria continue to improve as the berry begins to rot. This process will maintain the germination rate for several months!
This shrub also known as chacruna is part of the coffee family and has been used for hundreds of years in South and Central America. The leaves of the plant are said to be pulverized by the medicine men and the juice applied to the eyes to treat migraine. This should not be attempted without a trained professional herbalist though
These viable seeds are sold to grow in remembrance of a long lasting and respected culture. Ingestion of any part of the plant may be dangerous. DO NOT CONSUME!
