Plants grow about 3-5 times faster than the regular strain. The dramatic increased speed of growth, is a natural genetic difference in grasses called "polyploidy" which is not caused by fertilizers. This plant is not a hybrid or a GMO or man-made, and is the fastest-growing natural strain in North America, discovered growing in our beds many years ago. There is no difference in the scent of either strain. If you want Express mail delivery, please add prices below.
When established and fertilized monthly, the Supershamanistic strain can produce at least 40,000 braids per acre per year.

WHEN PLANTS ARRIVE -- If you don't have time to plant them immediately, they can survive in their plastic bags for a few days, as long as the roots are kept moist and they get some light, but never any direct sunlight.
When plants first arrive, always soak the roots in a bowl of water for at least one minute. You can also mix up one cup liquid fish fertilizer with a gallon of water, and soak roots for 15 minutes in the liquid fish solution before planting.
When we ship the plants to you, their roots are not shipped bare-naked, and have moist potting soil protecting them, which allows plants to start growing quickly once you plant them.
Before planting in pots, add a Tablespoon of bone meal and blood meal and mix them into the potting soil, before you plant the plants.
After planting, fertilize the plants with liquid fish fertilizer, one cup diluted in a gallon watering can. Also add a hand-full of bone meal and blood meal to each plant. Then sprinkle the surface with a little more water, to wash the fertilizers deeper into the soil, so it is not on the surface.
You will repeat those three fertilizers each month in the growing season--a hand-full of bone meal, blood meal worked into the top inch of soil around each plant, and one cup of liquid fish diluted in a gallon of water.
If you are ordering 20 or fewer plants for delivery in spring or summer, it is best to plant each plug into 8" diameter plastic pots in potting soil, keeping them outside in the shade for a few days, and then introduce them to morning sun and then as much afternoon sun as they can take.
DO NOT USE potting soil that contains polymer crystals, and do not add any polymer crystals to the potting soil, as it keep the soil too moist. The potting soils with polymer crystaks will mention something on the bag about "moisture control" or "watersorb". DO NOT USE THIS TYPE OF POTTING SOIL.
When growing in pots, always use a commercial potting soil, and you can mix in some Perlite to add better drainage, up to 30% perlite. Do not use vermiculite. Also, do not use Kellogg Brand potting soil.
Also for plants in containers, never use soil dug out of the garden, or Michigan swamp mud.
Also, do not use Miracle Gro® brand bone meal, but any other brand of bone meal is OK. You can find the other brands at ACE hardware stores like "High Yield" or they can special order it for you.
Planting sweetgrass in the pots first, allow you to easily move them around the garden, until you find the perfect sun/shade conditions that the plants like best.
Let them grow for at least month in the pots before you plant them out into the garden. In the North, they will want sun all day long. In the Southwest, Deep South and Southern California, they will absolutely need some afternoon shade.
Click here to see sweetgrass growing month-by-month, and the plant in a few months will fill the 8" pot. When they've grown to a large size, you can plant them out into your garden, spacing each about one foot apart. Sweetgrass is very fast-growing in the summer.
Plants ordered in autumn can be directly planted into the garden---just make sure to put them in an area that is completely free of other grasses, and carefully mark each spot where you plant your plants, so you can find them next spring.
Plants are shipped via the post office in cardboard
boxes, priority mail, or express mail.
