More info

Black henbane, also called Hyoscyamus niger in Latin, is a biennial herb from the nightshade family.
Its flowers are yellow and black in the shape of a bell.
Flowering begins during the summer period.
It measures approximately 60 cm in height.
Black henbane seeds are small and gray in color, they grow in capsules which become ripe in September or even October.

This magical herb has many alkaloids such as atropine (like deadly nightshade), hyoscyamine and scopolamine which are also found in white.
It was used in Europe for the purposes of esoteric and shamanic rituals.

In medicine, it is used for therapeutic properties just like hops or valerian.

The best time to sow black henbane seeds is in May because the nights are less cool.

Sow the black henbane seeds in a tray of fine potting soil, cover them very lightly with your finger under a few millimeters of potting soil. Be careful not to cover them too much.
Then place the planting box in a greenhouse at a temperature of 25 to 30°C.
Germination of henbane takes place between 4 and 6 weeks after sowing.

Once the seedlings are strong and measure 5 to 10 cm, transplant them into a pot separately or directly into the ground in a sunny area of the garden.
