From what reliable sources have told me it's 15-20 years from seed, possibly less. From cuttings, which is easier to find, they are already mature. Because they have been taken from mature parent trees. They are fast growing trees. My Rifat is growing and inch or more a week.

Is this meant for me? I'm new to forums, never been on one before this so I'm learning.
If it is, I'm ok with sharing what I know and what I will learn about them. I'm growing a collection of them.

My Kratom plants are in what was my bedroom, lol, it's theirs now. I'm experimenting with light, seeing what amounts they grow best in and the effects on vein color. They are in gallon pots with organic soil, earthworm castings, rock dust. They love water but make sure you have good drainage. Watch the topsoil for mildew. I keep a humidifier going a foot or two away from them. The temperature is between 75-85 degrees. They seem to like the humidity about 70 percent. You can research their homelands to get climate info. They also like fresh air, and I've heard, slight breeze from a fan. I've heard they like food and acidic, nitrogen rich soil. I've had trouble with the Indo because it got transplant shock but he seems to be recovering. I'm looking for ways to help him.

Good to know my 70 year grow time is wrong! 15-20 is still a long time at my age, but doable IF I meet a nice guy willing to help raise it. Not gonna be a single kratom tree mother! LOL

Lol. I'm sure it's easier with both parents.
I'm planning on buying one grown from seed, just to have it.
Maybe 70 years to reach taller heights? They can grow 50-100 feet tall
Cuttings don't take that long though since they are as old as the plant they're cut from and the one before that. So the trees grown from cuttings ARE mature. My cuttings are only a few months old. They've dropped a few leaves and I brewed a tea, worked just fine.
I can't find the article I had on maturity but a grower told me about the subject. I'm talking with a guy in Indonesia, I can confirm with him.
Good luck if you ever do start growing!
They really are beautiful plants.

Here's a page I looked at when considering the project (not a deep web search): www.worldseedsupply.com/growing-kratom-i...o-grow-the-easy-way/

Hello welcome,
I'm not familiar with growing these trees however I do have a bit of knowledge on rooms with the need for fresh air and have a green thump.
Sounds like your on the right path, if you haven't done this already you'll want to add an intake of fresh air from the bottom of the room and a outtake exhaust fan at the upper opposite corner (diagonally) from the intake using a small inline fan of some sort.. this will greatly help with mold and mildew issues that may happen from the high humidity and higher heat that your creating.. a fan is nice but if its only moving the same air around thats not good either, sounds supper cool I'd like to give it a try one of these days.

Yes, they have fresh air, window and fan. I'm working on a better intake/outake setup for them. They're doing quite well, except the Indos transplant shock.. They have fresh air, warmth, humidity, plenty of water and food. They really like water.
The Indo is recovering from shock I've been looking for a way to help it recover but I think I just have to wait and see. I get a little panicky because sometimes some of the misinformation on the web (there is a lot unfortunately). But I remind myself that I should really listen to the guy I get them from, he is very knowledgeable and has been right about every issue that I brought up to him.
You should try, they are not as difficult as made out to be.
I think if you give them comfortable conditions that they will be just fine.
Thank you.
