The hypothetical guerilla bulk poppy grow thread
    #13550546 - 11/28/10 12:15 AM (3 years, 10 months ago)

has anyone else thought about how this could be theoretically done? ive got ideas about small patches in safe locations. also seems to me if one stays away from red it might be enough to fool most.

obviously, sowing directly on grass would be easiest for most places i imagine, but i understand germination is very low. even fairly small patches are obvious when theres two dozen tasmanian alkaloids flowers in bloom.

if others wanna play, we could have a very good general framework pretty quick. like i said, i have ideas but i sincerely dont think theyre very good.

you dont need a big fancy plan on how to grow poppies in bulk, just plant the seeds in disturbed soil, then harvest when they grow, dont sow directly on grass, has to be disturbed earth with little if anything else growing on it

few if any people will know an opium poppy when they see one, they just look like wild flowers to people

the main key is to spread it out. cluster spots are very noticable. match the color of local wild flowers and plant in areas where no one goes. no lawn mowers and nobody who walks around there. wastelands, woods, abandoned properties, canals, by rivers, off the desolate highway somewhere, and other secluded areas are the keys to success. if anyone does come across some, itll likely only be "some" and not every spot u planted. thats a biggies right there...."dont put all yer eggs in one basket:rolleyes:" plant a few in one spot and then move down the line to start the next. dont do it in grass, the germ rate will be low. any open-ground soil is basically suitable. try and get a few different strains and mix it up. if someone from above notices some poppies, theyll likely only think to hunt for more of the same variety.

I tried last year & none made it.  It was due to a lack of rain.

Sorry to necro but has anyone had success with this? What are the important guidelines to follow when doing this?

Where I am they will get all the sunlight they could ever want but water might be a problem.

I'm planting them in a big (32'x2')area along with a mixed bag of poppies that the shipment arrived with. In my garden will be a 50'x4' continuous planting. That's where the goodies will be. As far as I understand it they aren't illegal to grow, just don't get caught with a razor blade and a putty knife in your hand.

You need to be mindful of what it takes to overcome papaver somniferum seed dormancy, ie stratification.

I bought mine right from the source packaged for 2014, I will collect seeds for next year and then ask you what you are talking about. I think I know where you are going with this.
