                  Note: This is very important. Monsanto is creating "terminator" gmo seeds. They have been altered in a laboratory in a fashion which is NOT organic, un-natural, and very dangerous. The seeds that these gmo plants produce will not germinate. It appears they are trying to take over the farming industry with their dangerous genetics which have been altered from their natural and divine nature. At Botanical Guides, everything I promote is heirloom, meaning it has not been tampered with by mad scientist. It's important to make sure you find your genetics from a reliable vendor who does not belong to monsanto. I am proud to promote the supplier below so that together we can help counteract this diabolical plot to take over the worlds farm land and to poison the population with toxic foods.

                 On this page I'd like to share with you the basics of germinating and cultivating sacred healing and entheogenic gardens that include such species as Calea zacatechichi ( Dream Herb ), Kratom, and Xhosa Dream Herb to name a few. I'll tell you how to prepare your compost ( earth tea), how to prep the soil, when to plant the seeds and how to care for them throughout their lives.


Seed Germination


                 The image below is a make-shift or home-made seed germinator with green house abilities. It's made from an egg-carton. It doesn't look like a typical egg carton because it's not. I bought some organic brown egg's and it came with this even cooler container. It's made from plastic and has two tops that fold over. This keeps the moisture in. I taped it off on the side with some duct tape to hold the moisture in. Place it in a window seal with your seeds and be patient. The soil should be organic, and moist ( not soggy ). Plant right after the new moon when it enters it's waxing phase and is about 25% full. Keep them in a window seal for a while, even after transplant.

Transplanting


I also find that transplating works best during the beginning phases of a waxing moon. This means when the moon is growing larger after the new moon ( no visible moon. ) As a general rule of thumb your babies should always be planting in the same material that they were germinated in. I highly suggest organic soil or home-made organic compost. They do not do well when they are transplanted into soil that's completely different than what they were germinated in.


Compost - Earth Tea


                 You can make your own organic compost easily using earth matter from your yard. Gather leaves, grass clippings, pine straw, and dirt. Combine these in a giant container of some sort, or place them over an area of land you wish to enrich. The compost must be decomposed well before use. Allow at least three months for the compost to rot before using. This compost can be added to water to make what I like to call an "earth tea". This tea can be used later on in the season to feed your garden. It's an organic water based fertilizer. Perlite can be added to improve drainage. Perlite is organic, and all natural.



Feeding

                 Your plants should only be fed when they are asking you to be fed. In time you'll learn to recognize when they need feeding. Generally they will show signs of deficiencies when needing a feeding. Leaves may yellow, fruit or flowers may stop producing, and they will generally look sad. Over-feeding can be easily confused with under-feeding. Use your intuition to determine what the problem is. Always research deficiencies for your particular plant species before taking action. You can't un-do a major mistake. Once you throw the PH off in the soil, it's likely too late.


Plants should be fed every two weeks as needed. This is only so once the soil has run low on nutrients and after one or two transplants have taken place. For certain species these rules may be different. As a good way to tell when to feed you can feed your plants on new moons and full moons. This is roughly a two week period which is what you want. This keeps you from having a mark a calendar, etc. ( assuming you pay attention to the moon cycles ).
