Hemlock is ready for planting

The idea of growing my own poison garden seemed like a lot of fun since I'm a horror author and while I was aware these deadly plants were fragile.  I didn't realize how perfect the environment had to be in order for them to grow. 

The bright side is that my results are completely normal and do to the coronavirus I've had plenty of time for reading.  So it looks like I'll be making a second attempt. 

That being said my first attempt hasn't been a complete loss.  Hemlock like's me even though I nearly starved it to death do to lack of sunlight and overwatered it  oops...  My new LED grow lights really helped bring them back to life and I don't water them as much.  Now they are ready to move into pots.

Earlier this year a friend and I deiced it would be fun to grow our very own poison gardens. 

 

We were able to order the seeds for Belladonna, Hemlock, and Mandrake from the "Arcadia Sample Seed Shop" on their Etsy page. 

 

Like many beautiful things these plants are extremely fragile. 

The Belladonna seeds for example need to endure a 21 day stratification period to replicate the Scottish winter. 

Every day for three weeks the water is changed with an inch of warm water and placed back in the refrigerator to mimic the melting of snow. 

 

On the 22nd day the seeds are ready for planting.
