psychotria viridis, which strains produced seed for you?

Recommended Posts

hi!

there are many psychotria nexus plants out in the community, but everybody say's they never produce any seed, so I was surprised to find some in mature seeds, on my nexus plant, a couple of day's ago.

this motivated me and I inspected all my viridis very closely, and in doing so, as well spotted some seeds are forming on my moon!

but nothing on my shipibo!

so this thread is devoted, to pictures and text, regarding which viridis are producing seeds for you.

even more important, I believe, SEED PRODUCTION, IS A VERY GOOD additional, IDENTIFICATION TOOL!!!!

the common strain, flowers and sets seeds easely and early in the season.

the moon, flowers and sets seeds a bit later

the nexus, flowers as well late, and seed production is poor.

the shipibo, has not flowered yet, in my care.

here are the pic's, so who else got nexus seeds, in the making, am I, the first? :wub:

nice pictures and genetics,

My viridis is only now setting seed, while my carthigenesis flowers anytime it rains.

I only grow the common variety of viridis but it sets seed very well. Going to have a good amount this year.

psychotria coffee anybody, lol?

this plant is obviously extremely smart, because it's not producing all the ripe seeds at the same time, but rather over a period of a few weeks. as well the berries stay quite fresh as long as they get picked. they come off with great ease, but don't fall off on there own, till very late.

this makes me think, if the coffee plants ability to produce ripe seed pretty much at the same time, is in fact a trait, produced by human interference!

nice link i found regarding

Psychotria carthagenensis, seed dispersal:
