Shamans Golden Strain:?
« on: June 22, 2005, 10:48:45 AM »
Shamans Golden Strain:? :shock:  :shock:  :shock:  :shock:

Anyone ever heard of this strain I just stumbled on, on ebay?
Looks like a cross between sunny lettuce and SD!
Hope this isn't another chicken diaper sketch.


This auction is for a Shamans Golden Strain Salvia Divinorum. This strain was developed right here at Shamans Ridge.


It is a much hardier plant than the other strains, Growing well down into the 40's and yet holds up well in our oklahoma 100' summers.
Not as desperate for high humidity and holds up just as well indoors.
The plants grow with a bushier habit throwing out more leaves per sq inch as well.

This has become a local favorite and we now have some extra that we will be listing here on ebay

Kinda looks like patchouli, too. But my patchouli plant looks and acts a lot like sally, so go figure.

No the leaves do not look like Basil. Looks like small Salvia leaves to me.

Here's some basil leaves.  There's so many variations, who could tell?

Small Salvia Divinorum cutting.

It does look a little like the andromeda plant at sagewisdom.  My bet is this is a scam.  He say's it's a "local favorite"  How come no one has heard of it?

In case no one has heard - salvia divinorum is the real deal. We found it! No need to go looking for a better strain, more potent variety, etc.

Looks to me like SD pruned to be bushy--but did anybody ask the seller?  E-mail 'em a link to this thread and see what they have to say.

I'd like to give the guy the benefit of growing a new strain, but we all know how that is to do.......perhaps some of those chicken diaper seeds sprouted finally?
  Plant in question looks kinda sickly too. ( probably just bad lighting..leaves look ok)..be nice to see the stem, that would help ID it a bit more
....woud be nice to have a heat tolerant variety,  but Hoffman-Wasson grows well everwhere temps are in 50's to at least (90).....but I think it has to be in the ground if air temps get colder than that...
Edit:
(changed minimum temp from 40 to 50)

I'm guessing you will lose any sally plants you have, in the ground or not, when the temps dip below the lower 40's. Otherwise, it would be a different plant, no?

We get some good frosts here, and from Nov. through April evening temperatures drop to 40 degrees F, especially  following a storm system..... doesn't seem to bother those in the ground, but I wouldn't  take a chance with plants in pots.  Ground temperatures don't vary much and tend to stay around  50 here,  but pots have no heat resevoir, and can get too cold.

 Plants in fall have usually hardened off and stopped growing, so their tips aren't damaged, at least by light frosts and freezes.  A deep freeze below 25 degrees, which lasts 6 hours or more, would definately kill off the above ground part of the plant.

  This is of course is my experience only, and I wouldn't recommend any one planting outside unless they really understand their own local enviornment.

I figured, what the heck--I messaged the seller at eBay and invited 'em to check our discussion and comment, directly or via me if they don't want to register.  Hope they'll stop by.

Question for Jupe and a comment for space::  Hey Jupe, I can understand your basic survival parametrs for the temp range given, but I need your opinion about somethin so here goes:::  I live in northern FL in a region that on a few strange occasion might drop down to even 18-20 for maybe an hour/ halfhour at a time.  within those brief episodes (kinda rare really) the quick rise to 35-40 happens with a topping out of 45-55 on the coldest  days of the year..  would I bee successful if I covered my darlings and layered a bark chip bed all around them to insulate???   Hey space kudos on taking the initiative to directly contacting the guy and pointing him to a place where he can see for himself the interest/general knowledge/and concerns and questions we here might raise.  I think that's an excellent idea..  I have a sneaking suspicion that some vendors are under the impression that most with entheo interests are retarded and that they()the vendor) alone really know what;s going on...      senorsal
