‘High’ secrets of Morning Glory

Morning glory, botanically known as Ipomoea, is one of my favorite flowers. It’s super easy to grow and doesn’t require too much care – just perfect for lazy gardeners.

You can grow it from seed. For better results, seeds can be nicked and soaked in water for 24 hours before planting.

The most popular varieties of morning glory plants are native to Japan or Mexico and largely grown in North America and Europe.

If your new morning glory plant hasn’t flowered yet, be patient. Morning glories can take a couple of months, up to 120 days from seed to flower, to burst out in blooms, especially if you planted the vine from seed.

But this beautiful climbing plant has its secrets.

Eating morning glory flowers is not dangerous, however the seeds can be poisonous, especially in large quantities. Morning glory seeds can get you high because they contain LSA, a chemical similar to LSD.

Typically, eating morning glory seeds is not dangerous, but in large enough quantities, they can cause hallucinations, physical symptoms such as nausea and diarrhea, and overdose.

Have a look at my morning glory gallery – I found dark and light purple, and also pink flowers during my photo walks.

The symbol of life

Butterflies are deep and powerful representations of change and life. I love changes and challenges. I love life and possibilities it gives us. I love to paint butterflies.

Here are my digital butterflies.
