Public Notice: I Am NOT the Gardener. God / Goddess are the gardeners:
I'm just the caretaker of The Garden, at best, as long as I AM here.

Not one leaf, not one flower, and not one seed did I grow: God / Goddess,
Phoenix's (my dear wife's) Ghost, The secretly sentient sacred square
sticked sage tree herself, and that scaredy-cat of a hummingbird, they all
did the big work. I'm just the guy that stood there LOVING Them All: &
harvesting a few seeds.

(As I Pollinated each Corolla: I Respectfully Thanked my Goddess "Thank
You, Goddess, for the Many Fertile Seeds: So Mote it Be!". I KNOW my
Prayers were answered YES: 3 new Strains are growing from those seeds.)

For the Latest Information about this Sacred Plant: Please visit
The Salvia Divinorum Research and Information Center created and maintained by Daniel Siebert.
I Believe he is also a Frequent Contributor to the Wikipedia: Salvia Divinorum Entry.
I wish to Personally Thank Him for his Kind and Generous Donation of his
Time and Information in walking me through the Steps to obtain seeds.
It turned out to Be Surprisingly EASY: I'd be Glad to 'Pay-it-Forward'
and walk YOU through the Steps when YOUR Salvia Plants Bloom in the Fall.

Growing your OWN Salvia Divinorum Seeds!

Bless the Lord and Lady for this great miracle!

Bless ALL the Keepers of the Sacred Sage!
Bless ALL those Kept by the Sacred Sage!

It's Hummertime! My Animated Hummingbird Pictures!

Last Update: March 16th, 2012

Blessed Yule! Merry Un-Birthday! And a Happy 2012!

Welcome Visitor Number:

I wish to thank the Pioneers of Findhorn Gardens in Scotland
(Pronounced "Fiendhorn" in a lovely Scottish Brogue)
who 'proved' that plants spirits CAN be Worked With,
(More About the Magickal Findhorn Gardens in Scotland)

And I thank
The Ghost of my Wife, Phoenix: her STRONG Love for me reached out from
beyond the grave and "Meddled" with the Deva, or Plant Spirit, of this
TREE for TWO Years Running!

Last year I 'Heard' her 'say' "I wanted to give you Flowers (but ghosts have
no Money), so I Helped this Plant Grow some for you!" - after it had
Bloomed over 2 Months non-stop. All the Winter of 2004/2005 she was
Whispering to that plants Deva, with Great Love, "Give him Flowers, give
him LOTS of Flowers!" and I was Presented with 20 Bouquets of a Dozen
sweet & tiny flowers!

Last October she started in AGAIN on my Precious Plant: "Give him
Flowers, give him LOTS & Lots of Flowers!" Then, when that hungry
hummingbird and I started Pollinating those Flowers, she Whispers
to the Plant "Give him SEEDS, give him LOTS of Fertile Seeds!"

the Merging of Phoenix's soul and astral (electronic) body [that shows up
in a Kirlian photograph] with that tree's Deva, and Physical (cellulose) body,
and My Pure, and honoring, and Respectful Love: For both the spirit of my
wife, and the spirit and flesh of the sacred plant. My soul and the Tree's
Deva and Phoenix's soul merge into one flesh when ever I tenderly kiss a
leaf / remove a cutting / pollinate a Flower / Hug a Tree / or Harvest a Seed.

We have created a genetic out-picturing of our love together, in a wooden
sense, exactly as described in the book "Conversations with God: an
Uncommon Dialog, Book two, pages 80 - 83". Kind of like the Virgin birth
thing - except I did the male pollinate part and she ripened the seeds in
their Calices with the Warmth of her Love. Phoenix's Ghost feels VERY
STRONGLY those seeds are her & mine / OUR "Love Children", and in a
way, So do I.

The Blessed, Wooden, Spawn of 2 good witches, madly in love: (one
`Dead' and "Possessing" a Plant's Body), a sweet, spooky, story of an
eternal love that has survived the Grave dozens of times over many

They are the First recorded Mature Seeds EVER harvested in the
continental USA from a Salvia Divinorum Plant, grown Outdoors! I have
been assured that Somebody SOUTH of the Equator (in a Country that
shall remain Nameless) has Obtained Salvia Divinorum seeds from their
Plants last year: so I am NOT the First Person to get mature seeds from this
plant in a NON-Tropical Climate! My Congratulations to that Person (Who
MUST remain Nameless) as It is a Tropical Rain Forest Plant: it's not been
thought to Set mature Seeds in non-tropical climates!

This is the First instance proving that seeds can mature growing OUTDOORS in The USA:
those Growing this Plant in Frost free regions Of The USA (Texas / Florida /
California) take heart! You, too, can hand pollinate flowers that your plant
produces and expect that, in due time, you also will harvest seeds! It is
almost your DUTY to this sacred species of Plant to TRY to increase the
genetic diversity of it by GROWING your OWN salvia plants from seed and
sharing cuttings with many for FREE. Anybody with a greenhouse, or
People with a warm garage using standard florescent lights and a timer to be
able to vary the Light / Dark Ratio: you can get your plants to flower and
hand Pollinate them! For more information about this subject please visit
the "Flower Induction Experiments" section of this Webpage.
Please Note they Only Hand Pollinated 14 Flowers and 4 of those set seeds:
This was in a greenhouse in Michagan, in 1980, and a few others have
demonstrated Salvia divinorum's self-fertility since then.

How to grow your OWN Salvia divinorum seeds.

I have been informed that there is NOTHING Miraculous about
these seeds or the 3 new strains of Salvia Divinorum. This
plant is self fertile and sets seeds if hand pollinated and
the temperature doesn't drop too low during the flowering and
seed maturation period. San Diego has a VERY Mild climate,
I properly hand pollinated (using ONLY a freshly fallen flower),
a hummingbird had my tree high on his preferred nectar source
list and his feeding helped me out with the plants pollination.

All Of the 3 New Strains Have Been Named Now:
  1. Phoenix: In Honor of my Wife.
  2. Aquarian: Named for me - It's my Sign & I DID carry water to them ;-)
  3. Moon Maiden: Cosmic, Indeed!

Rewriting botanical history wasn't what I set out to do. I just set out to take
care of a Rare and Sacred Plant, that's all. The rest of this all "Just
Happened" to me! I am Blessed indeed!

Goddess can do anything if you have Faith in her: I have faith
At Least the size of a Salvia Divinorum Seed!

Blessed Growing be to thee also! Here's all the
good Gardening LUCK you'll ever need:
From The Lucky Leprechaun to YOU!

May the Spirit of Findhorn Gardens grow in your gardens, too!
