Title: introducing my iboga plants
Post by: WisdomSeeker on April 21, 2014, 12:33:53 PM
I have seven little ones I'm trying to grow at the moment. They are doing OK now that they are out of the intense light of my greenhouse. Take a look!

All these little ones are long pod variety but I'd absolutely love to get a hold of some round pod seeds. Have lots of trade mediums! Lots of rare plants I can offer.

Wow!

Wonderful work WisdomSeeker!  These plants look beautiful!  I wish I could grow some... I had seeds and gave them to the person I know with the best environment and skills but don't if any have germinated.

Nice pictures  8)

Btw what is the difference between long pod and round pod iboga?

I believe I have read that certain tribes prefer one type to the other. The long pod variety grows a pepper shaped fruit that has the seeds. The other produces a rounded more apple looking fruit. I would only like to have both types to further my diversity and help to preserve both types. I too think I've read that there are several subspecies of both as well. Not entirely sure that info is correct though. Maybe someone more knowledgeable can speak on that.

Thanks! I'm more trying to grow them than anything. I have had quite a struggle trying to figure them out. I have lost a few of my babies along the way but I'm trying. Think I might be more on the right track now though. Only time shall tell...

Awesome wisdomseeker, I think you'll love your plants...what climate are you in?  Cold winters?

Zone 9 so it really only gets cold a short while and not too cold at that. A few days below 40F but that's about it. I do love the plants already. Have since the seeds got here! Some sprouted in route from basically the other side of the globe.

I tried messaging a guy named yann on fb to try and find round pod seeds but no reply as of yet. All mine are long pod. Great little ones though and they came from a very nice guy whom is very legit. I don't know if I can mention his vendor name here. Good guy though I paid well in advance for them before they were ready. All I had to do was message him once after the time he said they should be ripe and then they were right on the way!

Maybe someday I'll have the happenstance to take iboga and I'll maybe become more in tune on their particular habits and likes. Mine are so many years off potential harvest and I'm not sure I'd like to hurt my personal babies either way. Just such an honor to actually have them in the first place. Feels so good to know I have a chance to rear such greatness!

Peace and thanks all for the comments!

Same batch of seeds yielded two very distinctive plants!

They aren't setting any pods being set but they are still flowering like crazy. Maybe there isn't a particular pollinator around here for them. I'd figure once more and more flowers open at once maybe it will attract the pollinators. Flowers are pretty deep and small or I'd try self pollinating them. Was not wanting to hurt the flowers in case they set pods but so far nothing.

  On some pictures of plants the pods look like green/red peppers. Wonder if they are edible and/o cookable with flavor? I need to try starting some plants....

Hmm, round pod seeds, eh?
Maybe I can get my friend in Gabon to throw those in the next shipment. How many would you want? Any special way to pack them or preserve them during shipment?

Thanks for the offer man! I hadn't stopped in here for awhile. Still have not located round pod iboga seeds. Spoke to a guy whom has some and he promised someday to send some if he ever gets fruits. My plants still profusely flower with no set. After much research I've figured its the age. I've heard other growers say theirs flowered constantly for years until 4-5 years old until they finally set fruit. Mine are close...probably over three years old or pretty damn close to three years.

Still growing it but still not yet actually tried iboga. Due to being in the states I cannot find a source. Furthermore I'd rather source from ethically harvested suppliers if that's even possible. Funny thing was I tried to go to iboga world to see if they'd ship and they said yes. So I promptly went to buy but didn't realize my card had a fail safe against large over seas charges! So shortly after I thought I had bought my bark I got a call from the bank asking if I had made a large purchase to iboga world over seas! So I said nope what's that stuff and had them cancel it lol! After that I've had cold feet about trying again...
