Psychotria carthagenensis is most closely related to psychotria alba. The two are commonly confused to the point that we’ve seen people debate whether they are a separate species. They are. One can distinguish carthagenensis as being rounder. The leaves are more uniformly ovate and the seeds are closer to a circle than an oval. Like psychotria viridis and alba, carthagenensis is a sacred plant in traditional Amazonian religion. Of all three species, psychotria carthagenensis is the most elusive to find in cultivation. So as you can imagine, World Seed Supply is very proud to bring these to you direct from the Peruvian Amazon. All three species follow identical growth habits. Like other psychotrias, carthagenensis can be reproduced from leaf cuttings.
