Description

Alicia anisopetala (or possibly A. macrodisca), family Malpighiaceae, native to Peru. Known as Black Ayahuasca or Black Caapi. Some internet sites report that this species contains both tryptamines and beta carbolines. Others claim that there have been no beta carbolines found at all. The stem and leaves oxidise when cut, turning black, which would lend itself to the indigenous classification of ‘black ayahuasca’.

Care and Cultivation of Alicia anisopetala

Alicia anisopetala likes a rich and moist soil in part shade to full sun. Frost and drought sensitive. Likes a lot of root space. Fertilise well over the growing season. A liana, it will prefer to climb over something like a fence or a trellis. A little less cold tolerant that B. caapi but we find this vine to be relatively vigorous and easy to care for.

    Strong healthy plant. Good root system. Well established.
    New growth already after 3 days since I received the plant.

    Packaging and service is exceptional as always.

    Nice healthy plant. It didn’t look back from delivery in March, growing straight away & now in July (Winter) Central Coast N.S.W it hasn’t dropped any leaves & is doing better than B.Caapi

    Once again, prompt service & well packed.
