How to grow Banisteriopsis Caapi?
    #1199708 - 01/08/03 07:13 AM (13 years, 10 months ago)

What substrate? How much humidity? How much light?...
Anybody here have some experience with growing this vine?
Is it rewarding enough to grow indoors (in a room with lots of light and glass)?
Any good cultivation links?
Any help appreciated.
Thanx!!!

I haven't heard much about people growing this, but it's a vine. It grows in tropical conditions.
Rain Forest soil is pretty shitty actually and takes years and years and years and years for anything to grow (that's why when the rain forest is cut down it doesn't exactly grow back in 10 or 20 or even 50 years). Lemme see if i can't find something for you..


Edit: Well i couldn't find my notes on it, but you basically want to simulate rain forest conditions. Vines have strong apical dominance and climb right up trees real quick to get light.
So: some humidity, light, good (but not spectacular) soil with some perlite in it, say potting soil with 1/4 sand and a little perlite mixed in. Give it something to climb.

Most of all, good luck.

Thanks Neuro,
you sort of confirmed what I was thinking. Strange that there's so little info and experience to find on the net. I hope I can change that some day. I'll order a few cuttings and do some cultivation experiments. I'll let you know when I have some results. (It can take a while though, since I'm rebuilding a house now, and I can only start this when I moved in. Just busy now planning my future etnobotanical garden.)

Very cool... if you have a chance PM the source of your cuttings (assuming it's a vendor).

actually B caapi is quite easy to grow...

as for your questions about growing it, B caapi is a plant (a vine) so naturally i abide by my "instant-plant-success-formula" consisting of soil, water and light. tho i have noticed that lots of light is not 100% necessary. in fact my B caapi is situated in my house, far away from a window and getting very little light yet is thriving very nicely. the new foliage is healthy, and the plant seems to shoot out 6" of growth every day.

creating a sub-tropical climate is not necessary with B caapi, in fact it's one of the easier plants to grow once established. it can easily be acclimitized to grow with ease in your house with no external humidity/misting required.

hope this helps

PS: B caapi is NOT a tropical plant. it is a sub-tropical who's natural habitat is at the outskirts of the rainforests in areas that arent as humid as the rainforest itself

:laugh:GREAT!!! :laugh:
6" of growth a day!!! Easy to grow!
Sounds like a must-have for my future garden of Eden, and I will definitly give it a try.
How about the potency of your house-grown Caapi? Have you ever tried it?
Thank you very much for the info Camel, just what I needed.

What camel is speaking of is only possible after the plant has climatized to it's current conditions. If your specimen has been shipped to your house previously in sub-tropical climate, you cannot instantly thrust it into what camel has described. It takes some time to acclimate your specimen to its conditions, otherwise it will shock and suffer for a bit.

i am yet to try my own homegrown caapi. im fairly content with watching it grow each day.  maybe once my plant is very large (and multiplied :wink: )

as for acclimitizing a plant, here's a pretty easy way to do so...

make sure you know just exactly where your plant was previously growing, and the type of climate that you want it to become accustomed to.  if it's from a humid climate, mist it a couple times each day, and slowly taper off the amount of misting until you're doing no misting at all.  another thing you should be sure NOT to do is give it too much light right away. caapi's are sensitive to light, especially after being cut/shipped to a new climate.  remember, it's a vine, and vines in nature grow around trees that have leaves on them that provide shaded light.  too much light will cause your caapi to burn, and if it burns bad enough it can die.

anyway, hope this helps...

peace
camel

I tried growing some seed i bought from a vendor. No germ.

I received a couple of seeds today from a trade with a south american dude. Perhaps these will grow since they're prolly fresher :shrug:

I'll plant them tommorow and will post back any results.

How to grow Banisteriopsis Caapi?(from seed) [Re: esin]

Don't worry, B Cappi

Well I was unsuccessful the last time I tried growing B caapi from seed. I only used a few seeds, so this year I'm going to give it another go. Please, anyone with experience share your growing tips here.

I grew it for about a year. I just used really perlite heavy potting soil. It needs some humidity but it can be acclimated to different conditions. It lost it's leaves and died back in the winter time. When the new shoots came in my cat fucking killed it. Anyways though to get it to sprout you need some bottom heat or letting the sun do it's thing to warm it also works. I got some seeds from shaman's palace and am waiting on them to germinate. Anyways though lighting wise, it likes a little strong light but not too much and it has to be acclimated to it. Mine never quite got to vine mode but I started it towards the end of the growing season. Good luck.
