Hey there All,
Well let me start by saying that I am in love with this stuff

Ok There are 3 kinds of lotus that I know of that give you the effects you want.
BLUE LOTUS: This is probably the most available of the 3 and the favorite of many. You Can smoke blue lotus to achive a relaxing mild pot high or you can make tea or infused beer/wine to get a more mild mdma effect.
SACRED LOTUS: this is the one you read about in your history books. I find this the best of the 3 for smoking giving the strongest effects (Pot valium kinda thing) I spent a lot of time gapping out and stairing at nothing. But is the least potent as far as the tea goes.
NIGHT BLOOMING LILY: This is my Favorite by far, A little harder to get ahold of (not as well known). But the tea of 6g (for me is the optimal dose.) Gives me Intense euphoric feelings while being relaxed and very happy. It lasts for about an hour then you get a more relaxed sinking into the couch feeling and a great night sleep waking up better than before taking it.


Directions for tea are 2-7gr steeped of 25-30 min.

The more you do of this lotus stff the more you get off it. (you get higher the 2nd time and soo on to a point)
Im not too sur why.

If you get a chance to try this lotus it is worth it. If you want all around I would go for the blue lotus
If you like smoking go for the sacred lotus
If you want the best tea go for The night bloomer.

Check the erowid vaults for more info and trip reports

Hey erebus if you can get it go for the night blooming nymphaea. I find the effects of the tea (this kind does not smoke well) Far stronger then the blue or sacred lotus.

I will Tell you what, I have just found a local importer of it(blue and the night bloomer) I am picking some up next week. I can pick some up for you if you like(I guess that goes for anybody) It will be cheaper than anywere online $17 for a full oz and top quality.

I just want everybody to try the night bloomer.

If anybody is interested email me at [email protected]
I can send whatever quantity tou like none less then 6 grams though as that seems to be the best dose.

PS I forgot to mention I used to have sleeping problems( I would wake up between 4-5 am and it did not matter what Time I went to bed.) When I take the lotus I sleep till 7-8 and feel great when I wake up.

I love this new forum

Are we talking nymphaea and what varieties do you use exactly , and are these possible to grow in small ponds or a big enough tub ? When smoking do you allso use 6 grams and is the whole dried plant used , well these questions came to mind when reading about this beautifull plant allready known to budha and ancient egypt

Well Yes we are talking nymphaeas, From what I hear It is not too hard to grow but not the biggest harvest. NO NO 6 grams is for tea amounts. For smoking its the blue lotus or sacred lotus and I would say less the a gram. Tea is stronger though, except with the sacred lotus that seems to smoke better than make tea.

Sacred LOtus =Nelumbo nucifera
Night Blooming lilly(my fave)= Nympaea lotus
Blue lotus = Nymphaea caerulea

Hope this helps.

their website is here.
but they haven't updated yet to show this latest issue, i just got it a few days ago.
you can order it, though.
i can't reprint it here, it's copywritten stuff,
sorry.

the author reports best effects with an alcohol infusion, 7 grams of flowers in a bottle.
but he found that to be a bit too intense, too laid back in your chair paralyzed.
he seemed to like smoking best, and indicated that like salvia one needs to get familiar [8-10 uses] with it a few times to fully appreciate it's effects.
he reported that the sacred blue lily of the nile N. nouchali var.caerulea was strongest, followed by N. alba, N. nucifera, N. lotus in that order.
he seems to believe that smoking a few days in a row was cumulative in the effects.
he also seems to feel that the primary active alkaloid is nuciferine.

Well I would have to agree with some points but not with a few, he is right that tea is more intense than smoking I find the blue and sacred Lotus to far out smoke the others. But as far as tea goes (The way to go in my opinion) The last on his list the Nymphaea lotus hits me the fastest and the strongest.

And it is soo true that the more you do it the more you apreciate it and feel the effects.

I cant wait to read the whole article.
Thanks Hip

herbal-shaman.com has this.

I have ordered much plantwise from this place. Until Prices got outrageous.

The spores there. The EQ'z, I ordered twice. Did not do S***(Very VERY little, all aborts). Maybe the B+'s there are better. But i am warning you. And this comes from nearly 50 jar's of trying.

Fanaticus for your spores...

Well, I just ordered some night bloomer off newman. Cant wait for it to arrive :P
I have so much stuff coming in the mail this week; spores, night bloomer and an inavap.

BTW, what would the effects of this be like in the inavap? I drink a lot of tea, so i would like to try some tea with it for sure, but smoking it seems to use much less from what I've read here.

Hey brad, Remember the night bloomer is more for tea and does not smoke well, I will try to toss in a gram of blue lotus so you can try smoking lotus too.(sorry I would toss in some sacred lotus which in my opinon is the best smoking lotus. But I have no more for a bit I am even down to 8 grams blue)
But I am sure you will be pleased
Have a good one newman

Anybody live in a hot area with a pond or I guess you could use a bucket.

I got some seeds from my last bag of night bloomer. Its too cold to grow them here so I am giving them away to someone who wants to try to grow them.
The more lotus growing in this world the better.
