When I started growing Salvia divinorum I really didn't have a good idea of what growth to expect by certain dates. I want to share with you some examples of my plants and show you how long it took them to get to the size they are today. I think this will help others in getting an idea of how much space they will need and what to expect. Now not everyone is going to see the same growth speed, as your plants will depend on your specific growing conditions. But I feel my grow so far has been pretty average so I think these pictures will show a middle of the road growth speed.


This is one of my Hoffman & Wasson clones the day I planted it. This plant only receives Easterly direct sun through the window early in the morning then indirect sun the rest of the day.
Day 1 (In a 6" pot)



Day 33



Day 53 (And went to a bigger 10" pot)



Day 83






This is my newly planted Blosser the day I received it after a 3,000 mile trip from California. I pinched it after about 30 days and gave it a lot of artificial light. It is planted in an 8" pot. This one gets 18/6 Light from two 6500k color temp 4' tubes.
Day 1


Day 80 (I took the first clone on day 53)





These are some clones on the day I planted them and about 30 days later. These aren't the same plants but very typical results of what I get after a month. These were grown under two 4' fluorescent 6500k daylight deluxe tubes in a single fixture 18 hours of light a day.
Day 1 (The day it comes out of the bubbler after being in for 2 weeks)


And here is what they look like typically after 30 days

Nope, the top picture is plain distilled water only. The bottom one was the same for about the first month of it's life. Then I started feeding it 1tsp 12-4-8 All purpose liquid Miracle Gro plant food per gallon of water with every watering. (about every 10 days or so). I let the soil dry out between waterings. I will probably start the top plant on the MG food next watering.

I really like how you are able to root cuttings with a very short stem. Then you end up with a very bushy plant (especially after pinching) without a lot of height.

I've updated the original post with a few more pictures and my clones from day 1 until day 30. Enjoy!

They just grow in ambient humidity. Usually it is between 40%-60% most of the time. Since the Spring is coming back around sometimes it gets to 80% for a day here and there lately. I am about to start another grow log with a window plant in ambient humidity again.

2 fixtures means more light obviously which isn't a bad thing unless you start burning your plants (flourescent tubes are difficult to do that with), but the idea between the different temperature bulbs is just to get a wider spectrum of light to your plants. There's no real need to invest in another fixture (unless you want to obviously), but if you want to widen your specturm of lighting just go out and get a 5500k bulb and switch it out with one of your 6500k bulbs. It's not neccessary and more just for your own preferance though.

And if you really want to get fancy you can add a lower spectrum of light in the apx 2500k range. I believe they are marketed as "warm white". But again as Hero said, not necessary.
