“For reasons that are not well understood, Salvia
divinorum plants almost never set seed. Botanists have
never found seeds on plants growing in their indigenous
habitat, and I know
of only four instances in which they have been found on
The seeds we are offering
were obtained from a Salvia divinorum farmer in Hawaii
who was willing to part with some of his precious crop.
The seeds germinate in approximately fourteen days, and
the germination rate is typically about thirty percent.
Almost all Salvia divinorum plants in circulation have
been propagated from cuttings derived from only two
clones, thus genetic diversity has been extremely
limited. When you start new plants from seed you are
establishing new, genetically unique individuals, and
thus doing important work to help expand the genetic
diversity of this rare species. Please be careful to
label your seed-raised plants so that they do not get
confused with other Salvia divinorum plants in your
collection. Most Salvia divinorum plants are
indistinguishable from each other, but occasionally a
seed-raised plant will be visibly distinctive in some

Cultivation of Salvia
Grow in as large a pot as practical (3-10 gallons is
best for mature growth), filled with a loose, moist,
very rich soil. The small shipping pots can be replaced
immediately upon arrival with a 4" to 1 gallon pot. In
all but the mildest climates (where temperatures never
drop below freezing), winter indoors.
The plant will freeze to the roots with any frost but is
root-hardy to about 25°. It likes warm, 75-95° summer
temperatures, with the condition that the humidity is
high. Mist in hot weather or keep in a high-humidity (above
50%) environment such as a greenhouse.
During the growing season (usually May to October), feed
often (every two weeks) with a dilute high-nitrogen
fertilizer. Inorganic farmers prefer mixtures such as
MiracleGro (the acid variety is best). Organic farmers
prefer high-humus, very well composted manure.
Do not fertilize during the semi-dormant winter months.
Begin light fertilization in early spring and gradually
increase until early fall. Distorted leaves and weak,
leggy growth are evidence of over fertilization.
Yellowing leaves will usually indicate too little food
available for the plant to use. This can either be from
too little food in the soil or from a soil that is too
cold or from some type of root damage usually caused by
the soil drying out.Yellow leaves can also be a sign of
too little light or too low temperature.
Keep the soil moist but not soggy. Never allow it to dry
out. If the soil ever becomes dry, the roots can become
damaged and the plant will wilt or lose leaves. Make
sure that the container and the potting soil that you
use for the plant have good drainage. Never use ordinary
garden soil or dirt or fresh compost when growing Salvia
in pots. Always use a commercial potting soil. Doing so
will avoid problems with drainage and parasites.
If you have problems with wilting or the edges of the
leaves turning brown and dry, a simple humidity tent
will often temporarily provide relief for the plants.
