Chicsa I'd total trade you for a leaf off that plant in your pic!

Bach tried the leaves from the plant I have. He took a small branch from my plant one time he had come to the house.

Anyone that's interested in the plant I have I could trade some leaf cuttings from. Looking for cactus cuts to revamp my collection after many losses due to a freeze. Looking especially for another js350 clone and Eileen bridgesii again. However anything considered.

One more question for understanding. Is "Dirty Harry" identical to "Rebel Clone" or are they two different P. viridis?
And if they are two different, why the name "Rebel Clone"?

So is there two plants in question here? The P. colorata that originated from @Chronic and a P. elata that visually looks like a Colorata?
I've recently took 4 leaf cuttings that have put out some nice growth which will feel like wasted floor space if the plant turns out to be inactive, I doubt posting pictures of the early growth being useful?

Has I stated above when I tried a few leaves I felt very little effect which could have been placebo however I have a fair amount of experience with opioids so it could have just been a tolerance issue.
My partner has zero opioid experience so shes offered to consume the next sample to see if psychoactivity is present in her opinion.
I'm yet for my main Colorata plant to flower so unfortunately haven't been able to take a look yet, Its a shame that we can't get a sample lab tested to get a definitive answer to the question, however I've no idea where to even start to get it tested.  :-\

Hopefully more light can be shed on the topic.

Bach which "Colorata" did you try? Was it the one you have labeled "Colorata" or is it the Elata that looks more like a colorata? (Including the flower)

Below is the P. elata you gave me with flower... It did not set seed so I don't know if it produces blue seeds or not. The flower appears to be more like the Colorata than elata.

after looking at P. Rosea it looks very very similar to the flower ive just posted, however the leafs look slightly different.

 One or more young leaves, part of it? Bach that surprises me very much that not much came there because it is a really powerful plant. An old big leaf normally tears the door open a good bit. But everyone is different.

So you felt no effects at all Bach?
That's a shame this has me scratching my head even more now.

That member would be me. The amount I tried was just a leaf or two quidded and held in the mouth for 30 min or so. The leaves tasted identical to P. alba, that is slighty bitter and astingent but nothing too bad. There were no signs of oral irritation or numbing or tingling or anything so I called it a day.

Hi there, Welcome to STS!

I just found out about this community and it’s EXACTLY what I was looking for. I love the name, I love the demeanor of its participants from everything I’ve read so far, and I’m excited to learn and share. I’m a believer in DIY, mutual aide, grassroots community so STS seems like it’ll work for me. I grow many useful plants for humans and wildlife...I’ll start a list on my profile in a minute.

I know I’m going to sound like one of “those“ people by mentioning this, but for full transparency, my impetus for joining the community is to locate a cutting and/or sucker of Catha edulis.  I have significant affinity with this plant and have a wealth of experience in its medicine and cultural implications from living in East Africa. So if anyone can help in this enterprise, even a referral to someone who lives near me (Arizona - Tucson, Phoenix etc.) or may know more in general, I’d be extremely grateful and will also be able to grow large specimens given the climate and my large garden therefor sharing cuttings in the future!

Thanks for your time, I can’t wait to hear from y’all!
