Care of new Salvia divinorum plants: We recommend allowing salvia divinorum plants to adjust gradually to a new environment. Misting or otherwise wetting the leaves can help them to overcome any shock much faster and in better condition. With salvia divinorum plants, we highly recommend use of a cover for humidity (a humidity dome, shopping bag, 2 liter bottle, milk jug, aquarium, etc.) and leaving them out of strong direct light, wind, and temperature for a period of time until they adjust. We recommend ventilation also, so that the plants don't have prolonged stagnant air which can promote mildew, by gradually allowing increasing amounts of fresh air to the plants. If you take salvia divinorum plants directly from the packaging into strong light and dry air they will likely begin withering, however they can adjust to a variety of conditions gradually.
How to grow Salvia divinorum plants: Growing Salvia divinorum plants is easy. Just keep them moist. They prefer high humidity and it is a good idea to mist them a couple times a day for the first couple of weeks after you receive them. You can gradually begin to acclimate them to your home environment. Salvia divinorum plants are easy to grow as a house plant. They do well in a sunny window. Just make sure the soil stays damp. Your live Salvia divinorum plant will be a well-established, rooted clone. The biggest problem that people have growing live Salvia divinorum occurs within the first few weeks of obtaining the plant. Salvia divinorum plants don't like extreme changes in the environment. The ideal temperature range for a live salvia divinorum plant is about 60-90F. Salvia divinorum plants tend to grow slower outside of their ideal temperature range. Salvia divinorum plants won't tolerate a lot of strong direct sunlight. On the other hand, they do not do well in deep shade either. Light shade and filtered sunlight are best. The stems of Salvia divinorum plants are not very strong. When the salvia divinorum plants get taller than several feet, they tend to fall over if not given support. Sometimes the stems will break off, but usually they just bend over. When a bent-over stem makes contact with moist soil, it will put out new roots at that point and eventually send up new stems. This is the main way that the plant spreads in the wild since it almost never produces viable seed. Many people find rooting Salvia divinorum cuttings to be extremely easy, simply placing one end of a cut stalk in a glass of water and leaving it for a couple of weeks. Others find their cuttings wilt and die if they don't follow some more careful rooting technique. Rooting plants is generally something that is done indoors. It is preferable to use bottled, distilled water and a sterile cutting tool. A cutting with at least two "nodes" on it (where the new stems are produced as side-shoots) is placed into a glass of water, and the water is changed often enough to prevent rot. It is best to take the cutting just below a node. Within 10 to 14 days or so, small white roots start pushing out of the stem. When these roots have reached about a half-inch in length, the plant is potted in a rich, well-draining soil. The soil should be kept moist, but not soggy. Cuttings from outdoor plants can be taken and grown indoors over the winter in harsh climates. While live Salvia divinorum plants can be grown in sunny locations once they are acclimated, they may not thrive as much as if a shade cloth is used. Soil for growing Salvia divinorum plants should be rich and drain well. If grown in containers, the largest container possible is eventually the best choice, as Salvia divinorum plants like to have a lot of root room.
