Description

This Giant Castor Bean, Ricinus Zanzibarensis, can reach 10 feet or more in a single season, with leaves up to 4' wide! An excellent specimen plant in the garden, or grown in a large planter! We love planting these by our front door to add a "Wow!" effect.

Ricinus is generally grown as an annual in cooler climates, due to it's fast growth, though becomes a large shrub in tropical climates.

The seed pod is a spiny, greenish (to reddish-purple) capsule containing large, oval, shiny, bean-like, highly poisonous seeds with variable brownish mottling.

Note: Ornamental use only. These seeds and/or plants are extremely poisonous!

Germination: Start these seeds right away to preserve viability, no matter the time of year. Start indoors.  Obtain a sterile seed-start mix. Sow the seeds just under surface of the soil, and water in. Keep lightly moist and do not let the soil dry out. A heat mat is beneficial to speed germination, or a very warm room, and out of direct sunlight until germination. Seeds germinate in 30-60 days. Once growing they should be placed at 20-22 °C, 68-72 °F until large enough to be planted outdoors.
