Happy Thanksgiving from the I Love Kratom Community!

We wanted to post all the Black Friday Deals that are approved vendors have made us aware of. We have heard that there are a few brands that are having a tough time staying stocked up. I am sure one of these brands would love to help you tell your vendor is all stocked up again!

Does anybody here grow kratom? I'm considering buying a small tree. Don't think it would be worth harvesting the leaves, but I just want to be in the presence of this healing plant. Is it hard to grow? Any information on this would be appreciated. (L)

I have done sooo much research on this subject my head spins just thinking about it again but heres my brief opinion...
1.Dont do it if you're wanting to cut cost of buying and save money..quality will likely take a few years.. at least one year for a few leaves :o
2. Do it for enjoyment. Easier for you if you live in tropical climate... hopefully they will grow too tall for indoors and dont tolerate freeze. They will become a tree btw. Green houses suck unless you can have a breeze and shady sun light the leaves very much prefer real wind and sunlight.. i believe they are a under canopy tree. Certain soil, breeze and indirect sunlight requirements need to met for proper leaf development.

I still want to grow my own and awaiting one more vendor to get back to me.. i live in central florida.. lots of natural rain, sun shine, and canopy woods i could use.
I can see how enjoyable it could be to grow your own but not for the lazy gardener.

I heard that you shouldn't bother with buying seeds at all, because they are only viable for a day or two after they are harvested from the tree. You have to start with started plants.

It's a tropical tree, so it wouldn't grow here in the Northeastern US. I doubt there's enough light indoors.

I have read same thing.. seeds are.VERY difficult to grow from.
Its possible to grow in your area keeping in mind you will need to keep leaves moist soil too but not so most mold grows. You dont want your tree sick. A fan and artificial sun light can fill in the gaps.. timer these items.
