are these opium poppies? (pics)
    #1522031 - 05/05/03 04:02 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

a friend of a friend has planted poppies. he used "spice island" seeds that he bought at a supermarket. after looking at poppies.org, he is unsure if they really are poppies that contain high levels of alkaloids. they should be tasmanians, at least thats what i heard....here are some pics......





any help would be appreciated. thanks.  :grin:

I would venture to say that those arent poppies at all ( judging by their leaves ) The blooms would be a better way to confirm though. And I believe the "standard" ( Spice Island, ect..) brand sold in most supermarkets are the Hungarian variety. ie. bread making poppy. ( still papaver somniferum, sp? ) me thinks this is correct, anyone???

yeah, they really dont look like any pictures i have ever seen. but i have read various threads where people say that spice island=tasmanian poppies. the leaves look jagged on the edges though....most poppies ive seen have jagged edges....

Probably some sort of weed

I'd follow angryshroom on that one. The seeds might have been treated/baked for them not to germinate. There no way these could be P.Somniferum, or any poppy at all actually.

poppies look like small lettuce plants for quite a while, till they shoot out their main bud...

why not just bury a bagel?
