Opium poppies

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
Well this is a question probably best answered by rolley, I've just bought some fresh opium poppy (papavera somniferum ) seeds and wondered how long the seeds cud be kept for before they become inactive to germinate? Also do u have any hydroponic growing tips for opium, wot chemicals work well etc?

    Opium poppy seeds can be kept for years before they become inactive. If you're worried about whether they'll germinate or not, dampen some kitchen roll and put a few seeds on it, and leave it in a bright window, and if they make lil green shoots then they're gonna be ok. As for growing tips, just water them and grow them in relitivly (spelling?) sandy soil, as they tend to grow better in sandy soil. Don't use chemicals, because they're a wild flower and will grow fine on their own. :)

    Yah ya can get opium poppy seeds from some garden centers and order them online, and they're 100% legal until you start to grow 100 acre patches of them and start to slit the pods lol then people start to call the police :D Some people a few doors up from me had a cople growing in their front garden lol

    You would need a good lighting system to make sure the heads bleed properly and therefore you would be able to get the resin. I think it would cost you a fortune in strong lights and power before you could get anywhere near a smokable product.

    you dont have to make a smokeable product, you can make tea from the heads, although its not really the same, and not really a sellable product. plus it tastes rank

    It just sounds a lot of hassle for something that isnt going to be great at the end, if you want an opiate there are a lot on the market and they've never been cheeper.

    Well, i'm not out to sell anything, just fancied growing something a bit different and trying something different. I doubt it can really be that difficult, I've read a bit about it and all ready have a system that I used to grow weed in. Just thought it'd be a bit of fun.....I mean...why not?
