Hello Osmani, I would be extremely interested if you have enough seeds to risk sending a few to someone in Canada. I have been following the discussion, and am blown away by the pictures on the wiki. The latest picture, showing the storage organs, reminds me a lot of either a dahlia or a potato! I guess the South American continent had conditions that led to the development of plants with such structures. Can this plant be treated like a Dahlia in a cold climate? That is, dig up and store the tubers over winter? I have great success with Dahlias, so it might work; if not, I would try to grow Pasithea in a pot in the greenhouse. Cheers, Lis Allison, Carp, Ontario, Canada, snowy and -10C today, quite right for the season!
