Hawaiian Baby Woodrose Seeds
Scientific Name: Argyreia nervosa

           Aside from its historic reputation as a psychoactive "entheogen", it was also be thought of as a universal "talisman" ( or symbol ) for a heart and mind connection. This is type of thinking is what activates idolatry and false God worship within us. It's not that the plant itself is "bad" or "evil", or devoid of purpose, but anything can become a false God when viewed improperly. Colossians 1:16 "16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. " Interestingly, the leaves are the same shape as the human symbol for the heart, while the flowers are purple. Purple ( a higher frequency of blue ), is a color historically connected with the pineal gland by different cultures. ( third eye ). Reports around the world of experiences involving HBWR that revolved around the heart are very common. Some believe that it exposes what is in the heart to them through their soul's eye.

Matthew 6:19-24 "19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: 20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: 21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. 22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. 23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness! 24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon."

Hawaiian Baby Woodrose is scientifically known as Argyreia nervosa. It is a climbing perennial vine that's history in Shamanic cultures lives on to this day. It has another side though, being used as simply as medicine in Ayurvedic traditions. Different parts of the plant are used in different ways by various cultures, but one must regard the law before embarking on a journey using it. This plant is known as both a traditional non-psychoactive medicine, and even an "entheogen", and is native to the Indian sub-continent where it eventually made its way around the world. It goes by several names including Adhoguda ( Sanskrit ), Elephant Creeper, and Wooly Morning Glory. The plant looks exactly like the Morning Glory except for that the leaves and flowers are much larger.

Idolatry Warning

This psychoactive vine has even been depicted in the popular motion picture "The Wizard Of Oz". ( At least, That's what I think. ) Look closely in the part where Dorothy first steps out of the door, after the house crashes down to "munchkin land". Perhaps they are portraying a connection with being "somewhere over the 🌈rainbow", and the historic use of this plant. You don't hear this mentioned too often. Remember, in Genesis God tells us what the rainbow really symbolizes. Genesis 9:13 "I set My rainbow 🌈 in the cloud, and it shall be for a sign of a covenant between Me and the earth." Not all plants are "good" or are "bad", it depends on the specimen, the context, how you're looking at it, etc. Lucifer takes things from the bible and uses them to pose as God, or to turn you away from the way of the Most High, hints why the bible says he comes discuised as an "angel of light". The enemy wants you to despise that which God created, and turn to his false light creation instead.


Hawaiian Baby Woodrose is easy enough to grow. It's invasive and produces tons of seeds. First start by scraping some of the seed coating off using a razor blade. You want to scrape away from what looks like the eye. It's a circular spot on one end of the seed. Once the brown starts turning to white, and you see a white line from the eye down, stop. Now soak the seed in some distilled water over night. The next morning, take the seeds out and place them in a moist paper towel or wash cloth. Wait one to two days, and check back. Once the seed has germinated a tail, you are ready to plant it into some soil. Plant no deeper than 1/2 inch.

Medicinal Properties

It has been prized throughout history for aesthetic value. Not only does it have a history of use in Shamanism, but also in Ayurvedic medicine. It's been well known by different cultures sense as far back as the times of ancient Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism. Root extracts and flower concentrates have demonstrated aphrodisiac properties in animal studies. Leaf applications have shown anti-ulcer properties in rats. All throughout the Holy Bible is the mention of plants. God even told Moses how to make a holy anointing oil. Three wise men brought Frankincense and Myrrh to baby Jesus, and in Revelation 22:2 we're told "In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations." On top of this, modern phytochemical science shows intelligently created mediines exist in nature.

As a word of sincere caution, I'd like for everyone to know that the seed coating is poisonous. Consumption of these seeds can make someone very ill, and its use is illegal. They are legally sold only for ornamental purposes. They have been consumed by different cultures around the world, yet these cultures knew what they were doing, and had the legal right to do so. They also did all sorts of other crazy things that you may not want to try at home. So if you're looking for a good time, then instead do something else. They are collectors items and have a very interesting and mysterious history behind them. No doubt they are cool to grow, and often cultivated by those who have no interest in their ethnobotany, but rather ornamental connoisseur.

This information is presented strictly for research. Facts regarding these seeds are readily available from scholarly resources. I'd like to make the sincere point that these seeds can be dangerous, the brown coating is toxic. So, don't be stupid, don't eat them or anything.

Revelation 10 "And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire: And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth, and cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices. And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not. And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer: But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets. And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth. And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey. And I took the little book out of the angel's hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter. And he said unto me, thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings."
