Aconitum napellus, aconite, monkshood, wolf's bane, leopard's bane, women's bane, devil's helmet or blue rocket, is a genus of over 250 species of flowering plants belonging to the family Ranunculaceae.

These herbaceous perennial plants are chiefly native to the mountainous parts of the northern hemisphere.

The roots of Aconitum supply the Nepalese poison called bikh, bish, or nabee.
It contains large quantities of the alkaloid pseudaconitine, which is a deadly poison.

Several species of Aconitum have been used as arrow poisons.
The Minaro in Ladakh use Aconitum napellus on their arrows to hunt ibex, while the Ainu in Japan used a species of Aconitum to hunt bear.
The Chinese also used Aconitum poisons both for hunting and for warfare.

Aconitum poisons were used by the Aleuts of Alaska's Aleutian Islands for hunting whales.
Usually, one man in a kayak armed with a poison-tipped lance would hunt the whale, paralyzing it with the poison and causing it to drown.

Sowing seeds of monkshood:
Sow your monkshood seeds in a box of fine soil, cover the Aconitum napellus seeds 1 to 2 mm and then leave the box during the winter outside, this is the time that the stratification will be made naturally.
If you ordered your Aconitum napellus seeds in the spring, don't worry, do the same planting, then place your crate in the refrigerator for 3 to 5 weeks.
Be carefuf, without carrying out this process, the seedling of the monkshood is bad.
