Zornia Lateriflora is currently gaining attention amongst ethno botanical collectors after hiding in the jungles of South America (especially Brazil) and Mexico where it was traditionally used as a relaxant and a sleep-inducer. There are some indications that zornia may even work well with dreaming. Natively, this perennial herb is known as zornia diphylla, maconha brava or barba de burro, and it is believed to have been used by Ancient Gods in that region. In fact, the herb appears in Albert Hoffman and Richard Evan Schultes’ legendary book, Plants of the Gods. Like baybean, it is considered a good and versatile mixing herb. We are proud to be one of the few privileged vendors to offer this natural rarity.

Growing Information: These seeds have a soft, black outer seed coating covering the yellowish, hard seed. We have successfully germinated these seeds by scratching the seeds in a pinch of sand and then soaking in water overnight. We are not certain if the scratching is necessary, but we definitely do recommend soaking. These seeds enjoy a well-draining acidic mix. We have had success with Miracle Grow brand potting mix. This branching herb can grow to about 1.5-2 feet in height. It acts as a perennial in warmer climates. Once established, this species enjoys full sun and can tolerate drought.
