Ayahuasca (Banisteriopsis caapii) - Live Plant
Please check in-store for current availability...
Available in-store as of July 15/20
Container Size: The plant pictured here is from our in-store selection available in July 2020. Exact pot size/style may vary.
Details: If you are interested in ethnobotany this is one of those "must-have" plants! Originating in South America, Banisteriopsis caapii is one of the most famous herbs used in sacred healing ceremonies.
We have grown Ayahuasca for many years and have found the plants just gets better and better with age. Initially, they can be a bit fickle when in comes to the dryness of indoor air or the intensity of summer sun; over time the vine becomes increasingly substantial and the plant easier to care for as a 'normal' houseplant. Grow in well-draining, composty soil. Keep container size small until the root system gets well established, then pot up one container size at a time. Indoors, provide the brightest location available. Outdoors, provide shelter from intense sun.
Order Info: We are not currently taking web or phone orders for live plants, instead focusing on our in-store availability at the garden centre. Please be aware that inventory can change quickly and is not updated in real-time, so feel free to call ahead to confirm availability on items you are particularly excited about!
Shipping Info: Due to ongoing disruptions with Canada Post delivery guarantees and the difficulty of safely shipping live plants during summer heat we are pausing shipping of live plants until further notice (existing pre-orders are still being shipped, via FedEx Ground, and are unaffected by this notice).
