Has anybody tried all the Mitragyna Plants?

These are all the 13 types of Mitragyna:

Ciliate - Ledermannii - Parvifolia - Inermis - Hirsuta - Javanica - Speciosa - Tubulosa - Diversifolia - Rotundifolia - Kuntze - Stipulosa - Africanus

I've heard that most of them are very weak when compared to Speciosa.

I have tried Javanica & it was like a weaker version of Kratom. Reminded me more of Stem & Vein.
If anybody has any Questions about Kratom please private message me or make a Post & I will be glad to answer as soon as I can usually within 24 hours if not sooner. I'm usually on really late at night Between Midnight & 5am.

@madmax.......
Javanica is the only one I have heard of, I think I saw it for sale on Amazon??
Question;
Are all of the varieties of Mitragyna considered to be kratom? Or just the Speciosa? Are they all tropical plants or can some be hardy enough to grow in North America? Would be nice to be able to start a grove in FLA or TX....

Peace.

KratoCan: Some kratom is being grown very successfully in favorable micro-climates on the edges of the Everglades. The important thing is to protect the tree from freezing temperatures -- I'm not sure you can do that in Texas. I'm more familiar with South Florida, having grown up there. I recently heard the Seminole tribe is going to work with an entrepreneur to create a grove of kratom, along with hemp (for CBD) production on some of their lands in the Everglades. There are other existing groves being commercially exploited in Florida, so we know it's possible.

I agree with madmax's conclusion that most varieties aren't worth growing.

The University of Florida's Agriculture School has shown interest in the possibility of developing the crop (and producing versions adapted to Florida's climate, perhaps?) Florida's juice orange groves have been plagued with blight and bugs, so kratom might be a good replacement in limited areas that rarely get freezes.

I wasn't impressed when I tried some kratom grown there a couple yyears ago, but we are spoiled by the mature Indo product. Perhaps it will improve in potency with the maturing of the trees and the acclimation of a few generations grown from local seed. We'll see!

Cultivating a U.S. source of kratom is surely a good idea, if feasible, which it appears to be.

@kemppaulh......
Great info, and agreed. My usual supplier offers seed pods, both red and green varieties. I have tried to plant two pods last year in pots but nothing came up. I am considering trying to sprout the pods first then planting in a pot. I would be grateful for any info you might have regarding the nursing of kratom plants. I have had great success growing moringa olifera, of course it's a weed that will grow in the most distressed soil.
Interesting that, kratom is legal in FLA - except Seminole county. How's that work? Isn't there an old, well established large kratom vendor working out of Seminole?

KratoCan: That's interesting about Seminol county, but I'm referring to the Seminole Native American tribe and the lands they own south of Lake Okeechobee. The tribe is the wealthiest Native American tribe, thanks to these successful gambling casinos, plus they have semi-independence from the control of state and federal agencies. The property in question is not in Seminole County, but south of there.

The seeds are very hard to germinate unless they are extremely fresh. I believe my friend, who's been propagating the trees for 7 years, or since they began flowering, would be a willing source of them. He has little problem growing new trees from fresh seed. If you will PM me your contact info, I will put you in touch with him. (I think Laurie told me we finally got the PM function working again here...) If not, respond to this and I'll find some way to connect you to my friend "Will".

Actually, are you sure kratom is illegal in Seminole County? I knew it is banned in Sarasota County, but not Seminole.

@kemppaulh...
Of course! Sarasota County, sorry - my bad. That poor vendor down there has been in a WAR with the county down there, I was plugged in to it last year but haven't heard much about it lately. I'm new to the site so I'll need to stumble around until I find the PM tab, lol.
I do have a couple seed pods left, but they are completely dried out, even though they have been in airtight packaging. I'll still try to germinate them, and I'll let you know what happens!

Scroll up and there are some tabs including INDEX. If there is not a PRIVATE MESSAGES tab, click the INDEX tab to get a full list of options including private messaging.

Let me know if y’all can’t find it.
