Zamnesia - Opium Poppy Seeds: Grow Opium Poppy At Home

Papaver somniferum, better known as opium poppy, is the flowering plant from which opium and poppy seeds are derived. It is believed that the plant was initially cultivated in the Eastern Mediterranean, although its exact origins are shrouded in mystery. Poppy seeds are perfectly legal in many countries/continents, including Europe and the United States.

The flowering poppy plant is native to Western Asia and Southeast Europe. In these areas of the world, the plant is often cultivated, but it can also be found growing in the wild. Aside from being a source for making opiates, poppy is also grown for the seeds that you can find on various baked goods.

OPIUM POPPY CHARACTERISTICS

The opium poppy is a hardy annual that can reach a height of about 1 metre. The plant flowers in summer and sheds its seeds a few months later in autumn. The flower of the plant can take on various colours, including shades of red, purple, pink, and white. It makes a beautiful ornamental that looks great in any garden.

The Zamnesia Opium Poppy Seeds come from the Poppy Lilac from Afghanistan and the Poppy White from India. Just like their origins, these two types of poppy flowers are slightly different. They vary not just in appearance, but also in their active constituents; although, opinions differ on which one is stronger.

HOW TO GROW OPIUM POPPY FROM SEED

Papaver somniferum is a hardy weed without any special requirements—this makes the plants very easy to grow. You can plant the poppy seeds indoors in pots, or sow directly into soil outdoors, provided you allow the plants enough space for their roots to grow and ensure good water drainage.

The best time to plant your seeds is between September and April. Should you live in a climate with a cold winter, it is recommended that you wait until early spring to avoid frost. For germinating your poppy seeds, you can simply toss them onto fertilised soil and cover them slightly. Keep the soil humid and watered well until you see the seeds sprouting. This will usually take a week. Make sure you do not overwater to prevent fungus growth and rot.

WORD OF CAUTION

Zamnesia Opium Poppy Seeds are for growing purposes only, do not consume! Opium is highly addictive.
