I can offer tons. 

I have found they do NOT like strong light, ((specially at first)) such as most websites will direct you towards.  The best way to Start your young plants, is to plant one seed per small pot.. and place them in a somewhat high humidity tent. ((they don't need high humidity however.. it does seem to get them going a bit faster.. but you can start them in any envirnment and they will adapt)) The BEST lighting.. that they absolutly love.. is growlux lighting.. 20w floro bulbs.

I have 2 floros, and a energy saver 40w curly bulb thing.... thay freaken LOVE it.
Don't over water, don't under water.  They don't like a lot of water..((will slow growth to an almost standstill untill it starts drying out. keep the soil at a somewhat moist level at all times.

Novos MOLT, the leaves will turn light yellow, and fall off. no worrys.. there growing.  they tend to do this a few times a year..And soon enough after they will explode with growth. the picture shown above is right after a shedding of leaf.

Best not to touch the leaves... just let them do there thing.

I have my own special nute mixture that I use on them, and untill I profect it.. Id rather not give it out. you can tell one of my plants has some leaf curling.. sign of nute love :wink:I need to tone it down a tatch.

they are awsome plants.. and anyone that has novo, should know that they are in custody of a rare, AWSOME ethno. Your damn lucky to have them.

if you have any specific questions, i'll gladly answer to the best I can...

I can't offer anyone seeds.. sorry...
A. I don't want to see this grown for the wrong reasons.
B. Most of them are spoken for for quite some time. ((helping someone start his own garden))

After that... we'll see.

You can score seeds from some guy on the internet and he is reliable... + it is not that unreasonable at all.

50 bucks for 10 seeds isn't unreasonable?

Yea I know who you are talking about. I believe 5 dollars per seed is a bit steep.

Ends up to be like $60 for 14 seeds in the end.

The other site sells plants for much higher so it is actually a decent deal in consideration to plants or if you take in marijuana seed prices. The plant is generally illegal, at least the substance is (the primary alkloid) and it is quite a rare exception in the law that one species is illegal yet the other is not. The only other plant like this I can think of is peyote, where other lophoria species such as diffusa are still legal. The thing with novatense is it is actually more potent in akloids the coca yet it is slightly more difficult to grow in sealand altiutdes rather then higher altitudes. Well at least for arguements sake it's natural habitat is in the mountinous regions of colombia rather then coca's more flat presence in peru.

If you think about it, you are rather lucky to be able to get seeds for a plant so easily from someone for not that bad of a price while you still can. I couldn't imagine selling seeds in the US; The DEA would force Congress to make a law outlawing the other species if it became big in America.

E Novogranatense is not easy to grow. I have 2 left out of a batch I started. If anyone wants to take them off my hands make me an offer.

Eryhtroxylum novogranatense, better suited for home cultivation + higher C content than E. coca.

afoafoaf who tlks to me in my dreams has had some amaizing success growing this beauty.
it has quite a small and sometimes inadequate root ball so treating them with root hormones (i.e the hormone accelerant you buy from hydroshops and mix into fert regime) can increase their vigour and health two fold over the year...
At present he said his baby has some 150 mature leaves, and he has been considering cloning as it was grown from a cutting and thus will have poor seed quality..
I believe the seed supply for this plant is strictly seasonal, and if i am correct, this is not the time of the year to be looking to acquire new babies.
its funny that such a plant should be shrouded in such authoritarian prohibition. Youd have to grow fields of it before you could do anything 'productive'. its more about developing a loving relationship with it, as it is an extremely beautiful plant to grow and communicate with... andmaybe once a year or two you can have a chew :wink:
peace

E Coca is illegal but there is no statute against e novo that I'm aware of in usa. Doing any sort of extraction on it would get you into a situation. Drinking the tea would be a grey area but live plants and seeds are not prohibited by law.

Another thing, Kolizon, do you watch the ph of the water you give your plants, the novos? I heard they like a low ph of around 4.5 or 5.0. Anyone else heard that?

Stoney how big are your plants? I have 4 out of a batch of ten that are thriving, I cant really say I do anything special either. If your trying to get rid of them I wold be happy to trade provided I have something you are looking for. PM me.

And I see you at every one of these ethno boards, I find your posts to be very informitive and helpful, I assume you have been at it for awhile? I have a decent sized garden but I`m sure yours would put mine to shame. If you have some time I would love to see some pictures from your garden.

CB, my plants are small, about 6" tall. They drop leaves almost as fast as they grow them. How large are yours? Do you keep them under a dome?
