Calea zacatechichi (C. ternifolia) is a shrub that occurs naturally all throughout Central America, especially at high altitudes in Mexico. It is of great importance in traditional medicine. The Aztec dream herb is used not only for dream induction,
as the name implies, but is a well-known remedy for the relief of asthma and tropical dysentery.

From calea leaves, which are reminiscent of nettle leaves, an effective tea can be prepared, which, however, tastes unpleasantly bitter if it is not mixed with other herbs.

As a means of gaining the ability of lucid dreaming, Aztec shamans used the herb to find answers to questions of secular or religious nature. The healers, after drinking a strong extract of the plant in a darkened room and smoking some leaves, gained the ability to perceive the voices of gods and spirits.

Clean the small black seeds and slightly sprinkle them on the substrate, do not cover with earth, Calea seeds need light to germinate. A cold treatment (so-called stratification) can have a germination-promoting effect (store in the refrigerator for 4-6 weeks with some slightly moistened sand, eg. in a freezing bag). A short pre-soaking in hydrogen peroxide solution can also have a beneficial effect on germination.

Keep seedlings and young plants moist by spraying them with water. Ideal location: full sun.
