MG's allmost ready for seedling season(pics)
    #436296 - 10/25/01 10:51 AM (15 years, 1 month ago)

The MG bushes near my house are getting ready to start their seedling season. Checkout pics.


They also talk to me:
"Why did you pic me ? I have to be bigger you moron!!!"

A nice bush, i've seen bigger, i've seen smaller,

I'll post again when seeds are ready, fasten your seatbelts suckers!!!!!!!!!!

Peace,
MAIA

Wow, you should wind up getting 5-6 thousand seeds. My MG's have mostly stopped seeding by now, and I got around two thousand seeds, and My vines wern't anywhere near as big as yours. I use Miracle Grow tomato plant food right before seed production starts, I think that helps. Give it a try.

You have to wait till the seedpods get dry and their skin can be peeled of easily to get the seeds...

Your plants need a month more or 2 before you can gather seeds MAIA hu???

Exactlly Airdog, i was thinking about a month or so, that's why they're "allmost" ready.

Peace,
MAIA

MAIA,
Nice photos and nice plants as well, but are you aware that the species you have there is the "Ivy-leaved MG", which is _Ipomoea hederefolia_. Note the shape of the leaves on your plant: they have three lobes. (I may have mis-spelled that species name; don't have any of my ref. books with me.) It is beautiful, but I believe it is inactive. The one you want is _Ipomoea tricolor (=_I. violacea_, NOT _I. purpurea_). Common names for that species are: "Heavenly Blues" (dark blue, huge, the most common), "Pearly Gates" (white, large, 2nd most common), "Flying Saucers" (blue with white splashes/speckles or white with blue splashes/speckles...every flower is different, and they look tie-dyed, they are large and very cool and fairly commonly available), "Blue Stars" (pale blue with a dark blue star in the center, large, not too common) and a few others that are very rare or no longer available, like "Summer Skies" (pale blue with white swirls/marks) and "Wedding Bells" (pale pink). (If anyone has a source for the last two, please pm me and maybe we can work a trade, or i'd be glad to buy them.) The leaves of this species are heart-shaped; quite obviously different than the ones you have, especially if you see them side-by-side. No scanner here, and I'm away from my plants, or I'd show you what the right ones look like.
Anyway, unless you live in a tropical climate or have a greenhouse, growing Baby HI Woodrose (_Argyreia nervosa_) for the seed is a longer-term project (plants need to be a couple of years old before they can set seed) that may never happen if your growing season isn't long enough to ripen the seeds. It's a nice vine to grow and commune with anyway, even if you buy seed for your rituals from a commercial supplier. The vines are HUGE, even compared to MGs, and you can either grow it in a large pot or in the ground; it doesn't mind (too much) being dug up in the fall, root-pruned and top-pruned so it will fit in your house, and allowed to go dormant fro the winter: it needs very little light, cool temps (but well above freezing), and only enough water to prevent shriveling; in spring, gradually increase light/water/food until vine starts actively growing again. You probably need about 10 BHWR seed vs. 1000+ MG; makes things somewhat easier. I completely understand if you want to grow your own supply of MGs, so next year be sure to get the ones listed above. The species you have is strictly ornamental AFAIK...please feel free to prove me wrong. You know not to pick them until the seed pods have turned from green to medium brown, dry, and crumbly; this may not be until frost has nearly killed the plant. If you're harvesting them without intending to sow the seeds next year, you can cut off the pods a little earlier (must be nearly ripe though) and place them in a folded-over paper grocery sack until they finish ripening: turn from green to brown and crumbly-dry, very dark brown/black seeds inside (although some of the varieties listed above have light beige seeds, like "Pearly Gates," "Blue Stars," and some of the "Flying Saucers" mix (probably the ones that are mostly white).
Good luck, and please let us know how it goes.
If you need more info, or would like to trade other species and varieties (some quite rare) of _Ipomoea_, please feel free to PM me.
