    Hey all, just wondering if any plant of value (DMT plants maybe?) grows in the Northeastern part of the US. It's getting nice out and I figured it'd be cool to see some useful plants around, if any. Thanks.

    Seems possible. They say it grows just about everywhere from the Rockies to the Appalations.

    You could buy some seeds and see how it goes if they aren't native to your area. They're very resilient plants (don't need much care) and have a high germination rate.

    ...I'm refering to Desmanthus illinoensis, by the way.

    yay, thanks barebonejoe. I had a feeling there would be DMT plants around here. I said to me "hey mang, I'm super interested in trying DMT. GO FIND ME SOME."
    The Hunt begins. Must do some research on this fine plant. Thank you, BBJ.

    Cat: yeah, but I meant like growing wild and being able to find them growing.

    Hopefully DMT time will be in my future!

    EDIT:
    Further reading suggests it does not grow in New York (upstate). Does anyone know of any DMT plants native to New York regions?
    I suppose I could get seeds or something, but would have a much better and enjoyable time searching for the plant and getting his own seeds and roots and whatnot.

    Besides phalaris, which has been ruled practically useless in terms of extracting DMT, there's really nothing. I have also done many hopeful searches for the mid-northern east coast and come up empty handed every time. The best bet for people in this area is ordering the good stuff off the internet.

    Yeah maybe I will buy some seeds or something.
    He really does want to try DMT, but hates having anything to do with ordering things online.

    Just out of curiosity, what do you have against ordering things online?
