Devil's cherry seeds (Atropa belladonna)

Price for Package of 5 seeds.

Atropa Belladonna, or devil cherry, has been used for more than two millennia as a medicine, cosmetics, poison, and witch plant. Belladonna is a perennial, seeded, branched plant that grows up to 1.5 meters in height, with leaves 12-13 cm long and a purple stem. It dies in winter and sprouts again in spring.

For centuries, witches have used it in formulas, Venetian women in general, and especially "night ladies" for widening the eyes, and it is currently used as a remedy against motion sickness, IBS, and other intestinal disorders. Belladonna was also used to poison entire armies in the war. It is said that Satan personally took care of this plant and his little "devil's cherries".

Contains psychotropic/toxic/life-saving alkaloids, including atropine. This plant is a medicine, a hallucinogen, and a poison. Death can (and does happen) from ill-informed people, for example, by eating too many ripe berries in pies, so don’t do that. The berries are delicious (I ate them myself and they are quite tasty). This is a plant that is the primary ingredient of the secret formula-drink "Flying Formula" that witches have used for centuries.

This herb can really make you feel like your soul is traveling, but consuming too much can be fatal. It can also be used as an antidote for gas poisoning.

Culture

It can be propagated by sowing seeds or cuttings, although the use of seeds is more recommended. The seeds should be put in hot water a few hours before sowing. They need time to germinate and they need high humidity and heat, and while maintaining all the necessary conditions, germination is not great. Plants will appreciate the compost substrate with manure and a humid, shady environment. Nitrates and ammonia salts are the best fertilizer to double the number of alkaloids.
