Is this real salvia?
    #4407352 - 07/15/05 11:50 AM (11 years, 4 months ago)

This place http://mothergeckobotanicals.com/gallery-9.htm has them but they look slightly different from the cuttings I've seen. So is this the right strain of salvia?

Yes, that's it.

I saw an interesting (but unlabelled :frown:) salvia plant in the Cambridge Botnaical Gardens, which was identical to S. divinorum, but a much lighter, brighter, yellower green. It was clearly a healthy plant, the colouring wasn't due to nutrient deficiencies or anything. But it had the same leaf shape, the same stem shape, the same growth style, the same velvet-like appearance of the leaves... everything was the same except the colour!

erowid says that when a salvia hardens to other than the native environment , and sometimes has mutation and different leaf structure

Speaking of different leaf structure, check this out. One of my plants decided to grow several pairs of double-leaves.

Peruvian Spark: Freaky....

Well, if I remember then I'll get a photo of the weird salvia when I'm back at uni. That probably won't be until the end of September though, unless I need to go back there to use the library or something. It's in their greenhouses, so it shouldn't have died back from the cold or anything by then.

I wonder if the double leaf is due to genetic drift?
