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: Plant about 1/2" deep, and water in. Keep in a warm location, or on a heat mat. Keep the soil lightly moist until germination. Most seeds germinate within 30 days, though some stragglers may take 60 days.
