I'm thinking my timing couldn't have been better for spreading some poppy love around the yard.

We've been experiencing a dry spell so I got out my Black Carnation poppy seeds a put out about 30 locations of 50-100 seeds in each spot.

Then...

2 nights ago it began snowing and snowing and snowing and it's still snowing. So far those seeds are sitting under a foot to a foot & a half of the white fluffy goodness.

Thanks for the tips yall.

i read up that its a very confused grey zone in which the boarder of legality is crossed
when it shows clear signs of production in means of latex

if you grow them as a decorative or even to harvest some seeds, nobody will blame you.

in Germany its very tight about it, even big farmers which grow it commercially
had difficulties cultivating the somniferum, only one or 2 specially bred kinds
with low alkaloids where allowed to be grown, i dont know how accurate that is now
but in Austria it is actually allowed to grow them, but its still a drug so if you abuse it
you get intro trouble just the same.

This is very interesting.

There are a couple poppy plants growing in my town. I've looked at them and the stems are not smooth like those photos, they're completely covered in long hairy trichomes. Not resin filled, more like fiber.

What's the humidity like where those photos were taken? I'm guessing much higher than 25% on average?

I tried growing some this Spring but I didn't take care of them enough.
Their peat pellets got to dry and all they died. Next year, I'm using only
soil. They are such nice flowers and I wish the petals didn't fall off so
soon.

Sounds about right. Thank you for the feedback. This is more confirmation of what I've been trying to explain to folks for a while now. I started a thread on this topic today, with some initial research links listed. https://www.icmag.com/ic/showthread.php?t=330952

Poppies have a different type of trichome, their response to low humidity seems the same as cannabis.

Thanks again for posting the pictures, I stopped in here on a lark because of that plant growing in town.
