Ya they weigh it all wet and make it sound like it's pure heroin.

Police officers have quite an amount of discretion in the performance of their duties. The officer responding to my poisoned cat complaint could have decided my Poppies were for consumption rather than ornamental, but he did not.
Attitude is a factor. The officer stated outright that if I had been an asshole about the situation then he would have made a different decision.
The man growing the Poppies mentioned in the previous post had been growing the Poppies for some years without a problem until he was caught with instructions for extraction and abuse. The years he only sold the seeds were OK.

One month old now, not much change. The diameter of the leaves is greater and the resemblance to Dandelions is also greater. Root structures are different or I would believe the plants are related.
When the stems appear all resemblance to Dandelions is gone, the stems will grow out of the leaves themselves instead of the center of the plant.

The policy of ICMag is not to encourage felony lawbreaking by posts advocating the use of or facilitating the use of narcotics.

Much information I have gathered falls under those contraindicated guidelines. I like it here and am only addressing the difficulties indoor growing presents.

One of the major obstacles is the sheer amount of energy required, six kilowatt hours of electricity per equivalent milligram of yield.
Marijuana gives one hundred times the yield for the same input, 160 grams versus .16 grams.
Home grown indoor poppies are a curiosity, not a commercial product.
Further lighting problems will be highlighted when the pods become erect and extend more than a foot above the leaves, causing the pods to burn under artificial lighting. Later pictures will demonstrate this.

Meanwhile, the long filaments of root have reached the bottom of the containers and are curling up. The 12" deep container has about a 10% growth advantage over the 9" container. In the past I have found roots extending over 4' and they probably went further, most are finer than human hair.

Still looking like Dandelions, the Poppies are sucking up energy as if it's their birthright.

Any reason you don't grow them outdoors in the summer?

I started a few plants inside a few years back and put them outdoors at the beginning of June. Overnight frosts happen into the first week of June so the season is too short to plant Poppies in the ground.

The bumble bee picture was included because the bees seemed to like the pods and ignore the flowers.

I had an acquaintance try greenhouse growing for a few seasons. He harvested several hundred plants at a time until the FBI used his garden as leverage for testimony in another case. Powerful incentive to talk with a twenty year felony hanging in the balance.
Intent is often at the discretion of the officer in charge.
He no longer grows Poppies, good decision.

Meanwhile, back in the bud room...

The Dandelion leaves have over run the edges of the 12" single container and the extra wrinkly leaves that will later develop stems have made their appearance.
These new leaves will grow several inches then a tightly coiled center will extend into a stem with a single flower at the end.
Lots of healthy green wrinkled and knobby leaves means lots of flowers, and each flower has a seed pod as a center.
The garden's personal best is 40 flowers in a single container, single plants top out around 25, not many singles were grown so the number is not exact.

The wrinkly leaves are a good sign, right on time. Three weeks to flowers will make the veg time two months even.
Flowering to dry seeds should be another two months after that.

Nothing new will happen until the stems get long right between Christmas and New Year's.
