Solandra maxima


Solandra maxima

Vigorous vine. The extract from this species is said to be used for its hallucinogenic effects in ceremonies of the Huichol people in Mexico. It apparently pre-dates the similar use of peyote cactus in ceremonies.

They are a larger bloom then most people realize until you see them in person. The vines stems also...I could see swinging from them.
