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.
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.
People who were interested in Canary Reed Grass were also interested in Hookers lips - psychotria elata which is closely related to Psychotria viridis ( chacruna ).
