in the us theres a tree called mimosa or tree of heaven, albizzia julibrissin that looks very similar to what you have there dooby. i think it has phototropic leaves, too. definitely in the mimosideae sub family. cool plant, has anti-depressent qualities in the bark used in TCM (traditional Chinese Medicine)
i wish i had some cladistics papers so i could see where the albizzias and the desmanthuses branch of. also, these guys are releated to acacia too i B leave..

Ummm... maybe a sensitive plant?
Mimosa pudica


That's the one! Thanks! I've seen those growing as weeds in Hawaii and elsewhere. A Google search found a website that says they have low (the lowest actually) levels of tryptamines in them. I wonder how low is low? Like, not-worthwhile-kinda low?


Mimosa hostilis, nigra, pudica tenuiflora, verrucosa, scabrella (Leguminosae)
Mimosa hostilis contains 0.57% N,N dimethyltryptamin (DMT). M.pudica has the lowest tryptamine concentration. Low amounts of tryptamines and MMT has been found in Mimosa somnians "Jonathan Ott: Pharmacoteon s.174-175 1993"

M. hostilis, M. niagra and M. verruosa were used as the basis of the entheogenic brew "Vinho de jurema" in Brazil.
"According to Legendary Etnobotanical Resources M.tenuiflora has a very high tryptamine concentration in roots and stems."

BTW, I've extracted DMT from the root. Got 150milligrams (three doses) of DMT from a kilogram of dried root.



curious, was this from leptolobus or illinoensis? whole root, rather than just rootbark? and how old were the plants?

It was commercial Illinoisis from two different vendors. One was whole root (had to use my 2-hp electric chipper, then the blender). The other was a fine dust which the vendor claims was the rootbark. Both yielded roughly the same.

Greater yeilds are to be expected in D.leptobus rootbark >0.2% :)

I'm gonna try to clone some for the hell of it, why not... hehe

These have been moved outdoors now. They went out yesterday April 30th. Will get some updated pics as soon as I can. So far they seem to be loving full sun. They were getting ignored somewhat indoors so now that they are out they hopefully will take off.

Ok, updated pictures as promised. These really do look a lil sad and embarrassing... but, it's my own fault, not been caring for them properly, were not in doobyland. Now though, they have been brought back home and out to the powerfull sun they go. A few are better than the others. There's even some green trich growing in one of them.. ick.. but, I'm gonna get these all nice and going good, never fear. :rasta: A lil adjusting and transplanting will be done next thing.

Well, in the past month, they've sorta halted... due to lack of proper lighting, right watering schedules, etc... I'm waiting for them to really explode with growth now and harden off with the full sun and grow big once they get transplanted... Kinda hard to say how their growth schedule is because of this past month of slow/halted growth with em...

I'll tell ya what, these things LOVE the full sun... Getting very green and so far none of the little leaves have fallen off, even with the fairly strong winds we had the other day. So far so good, larger pots next step.

Had to pull this back outta the vaults... ;)

I thought these had all died for various reasons, I left em out though anyways, and sure enough, there is one sole survivor! hah I've been too busy to germ the rest of the seeds right now, so I'm happy this one made it! I'll get some pics up as soon as I can. I transplanted it outta the lil black pot there into a nice 4-5 gallon pot. The mix is some regular garden soil, some sand, some coco coir, a lil perlite, a handfull of compost, and some peat moss. Already in a day or two of transplanting, it looks VERY HAPPY ;)


I'm wondering how these make seeds... If I am lucky, perhaps this one alone will make some viable seeds.

Plants can get damn large in a couple seasons, a single plant assuming the mass of half a dozen large plants as it sprawls sideways.
Amount of sun and rootspace are important in maximising growth and getting flowering in the first season.
Rootspace is also important for rootbark production and in getting those chunky roots with food reserves to survive the winter months. :)

You are referring to the desmanthus leptolobus? They will winter over?
