took 48 hours to sprout
Plain peat based compost and perlite Fed once with feed for acid loving plants 50 % recommended concentration
Kept in a humidity tent.
Filtered sunlight (same a salvia).
Make sure you innoculate the soil with the proper mycorrhizial critters, or the plants will die very quickly. These microbes are essential for various mimosoid plants to get nutrients into their roots. Your best bet is to dig up a little soil from around the roots of some other mimosoid plant in your area and to mix this into your potting soil. or Get some vetch, pea, or bean seeds from a commercial seed source or garden shop. Plant them in the pot with the vilca plant. Let it germinate and grow a few leaves, then snip it off at the soil line. This innoculates the soil quite nicely, without having to buy special innoculants or go digging around trees hoping to get the right bugs.
Black beans from these trees are toasted, pulverized and mixed with ashes or calcined shells to make psychedelic snuff called yopo by Indians in Orinoco basin in Colombia, Venezuela and possibly in southern part of Brasilian Amazon. Yopo is blown into the nostrils through bamboo tubes or snuffed by birdbone tubes. The trees grow in open plain areas, and leaves, bark and seeds contain DMT, 5-MeO-DMT and related compounds (Schultes 1976,1977; Pachter et al. 1959). The seeds contain mostly Bufotenine which converts to DMT upon roasting.The bark powder does not contain Bufotenine,but does contain DMT and 5-MeO-DMT measured at 1% to 2% of dry weight.This is one of the highest levels of active tryptamines of any plant.
it needs some stimuli to toughen up the lower stalk so it can support itself better, it may start keeling farther and farther over, especially in intense humidty, and become bent and rot and die. Get a fan going in there and the blowing will make the stem firm.
