Yage spp. (White Yage / “Banisteriopsis Caapi”) seeds


SKU: N/A Categories: , ,


We are extremely excited to be offering these seeds in limited supply. You’ve been asking, and they’re finally here (for a limited time only). These are seeds of the white yage vine fresh from Peru. Classification of these vines botanically is unreliable because the plants are so rare. Only a handful of people have begin growing them in the U.S. Most classification is based on indigenous classification rather than scientific. We’ve been classifying our live white yage plants as banisteriopsis caapi for the sake of searchability, but the seeds seem to indicate that the scientific classification would be of another species. We are not even sure of the actual genus these seeds are in. We also offer white yage plants that are an actual banisteriopsis caapi, but the plants from these seeds have leaves that alternate along the stem. The banisteriopsis has seeds that look somewhat like maple tree seeds with vines whose leaves are arranged in pairs along the stem. These plants have a very similar use and history to the more traditional banisteriopsis caapi.  The name white yage is based on the wood color. it is a common name and does not denote a specific species. This is just one type of white yage. Check out our other products for more quantity options. We also offer red and black yage seeds as well as several types of yage plants.

Growing Information: The seed is actually the center part between the papery layers.  You can remove the papery material prior to germinating. Bury the seeds about 1/8” deep in a rich loamy soil. Soaking the seeds in a 550 ppm GA-3 solution for 24 hours is recommended. We offer Ga-3 in the “Supplies” section of our store. You may also soak the seeds in plain water.  Keep moist but not to wet. Germination typically takes several weeks, so maintain moisture and be patient. Established plants thrive in hot and humid conditions.   We are selling these fresh and for a limited time only. We cannot refund for any seeds that do not germinate.
