Spilanthes (Acmella oleracea)
This listing is for 25+ dried Spilanthes (Acmella oleracea) SEEDS grown in our Haiku, Maui garden.
Spilanthes is also known as 'Toothache Plant' or 'Buzz Buttons' because of their mild numbing effect on the mouth when chewed. Other common names for Spilanthes is 'Eyeball Plant' or 'Peek a Boo' plant.
Spilanthes is easy to grow in containers or in the ground. I like to pepper this small plant around my garden in several places and let it do its thing.
These seeds do not need to be buried, they need sunlight to germinate. A very light sprinkling of good potting soil will be enough to keep them from blowing away. Keep warm and evenly watered. This plant makes very unique looking flowers, they are adorable. The flowers seem to get longer as they mature.
