Phalaris Grass is common in many areas and is considered a weed in some parts of the United States. This is a very good indication of how easy the plant is to grow. They will thrive in most climates and do especially well indoors. Having a house plant is a great way to bring some fresh air in to your home. Canary Reed Grass grows well on poor soils and contaminated industrial sites. Researchers at Teesside University's Contaminated Land & Water Centre have suggested it as the ideal candidate for phytoremediation in improving soil quality and biodiversity at brownfield sites.
Sense Phalaris grass gives back to nature, why don't we see more of it at local plant nurseries? I mean, if you're going to sell people live plants to grow on their property, why not be highly selective about it? (consider the biosphere) Imagine the amount of money people spend on landscaping. Imagine if everything that they planted could be harvested for a purpose. For example, food, herbal remedies, and trees and plants like this one that give back to the soil and biodiversity. Also, I'd like to see the sides of the roads flourish instead of being cut down. As much as we pollute and disturb mother nature, giving back is the least we can do.
Entheogenic And Religious Use
Constituent wise, Phalaris Grass is similar to Chacruna, Cowage leaf and seed, Rainbow Tree, and Mimosa Hostilis. These are all plants that have been utilized in the sacred Ayahuasca brew. It's a "magical brew" made by Shamans. The psychoactive brew and even these plants on their own have remarkable spiritually enlightening effects on human consciousness. They have been used by Shamans for centuries to enter divine states of being. It may seem like they're never in stock but they are for sale from time to time.

Although plants like these have been used by Shamans, people really need to do the research on the interactions that any herb or substance may have with even food. The MAOI Harmala found in the "spirit vine", and Passion Flower herbs(to name a couple), can interact with many common foods and pharmaceutical drugs. Ayahuasca items are sold for research purposes, or collectors items only. The same is so for information on this website. It's presented for research purposes and harm reduction only.
