Silene Capensis, also known as Silene Undulata, is a perennial herb whose roots were used extensively as a dream herb (aka. oneirogenic) by healers native to the river valleys of South Africa’s Eastern Cape. Silene capensis is said to be more effective than calea zacatechichi, with reports of activity at only 250mg. Silene capensis plants form short rosettes from the ground eventually producing attractive white flowers. DRIED SILENE CAPENSIS ROOTS ALSO AVAILABLE!
Growing Information: Silene Capensis seeds germinate easily without any sort of pre-treatment. They may take some time to sprout though. Silene capensis seeds should be sown at a depth of 1/16″ in fertile, well-drained soil. Compost works well. Moisten the soil well and keep it moist either by misting or covering the container. Keep the silene capensis seeds at a temperature of about 70-75 degrees. Silene Capensis likes a lot of water, but good drainage is essential for avoiding root rot. Be sure to provide adequate room for root growth. Your dream herb plants can be brought indoors in the winter in cooler climates. However, we have had silene capensis plants survive snow. Trimming the tops will promote root growth.
