INDIAN HEMP (Sida rhombifolia)

USES: Vegetable, Medicinal, Xeriscaping

Arrowleaf sida stems are used as rough cordage, sacking, and for making brooms. The stems have a high quality fiber and were once exported from India and elsewhere as “hemp” (Guzmán 1975, Holm and others 1997). Chemical analysis revealed that the leaves contain respectable amounts of nutrients: 74,000 to 347,000 ppm protein, 94,000 to 475,000 ppm carbohydrates, 33,000 to 167,000 ppm fiber, 14,000 to 71,000 ppm fat, and 16,000 to 81,000 ppm ash. However, it was reported that the root contained 450 ppm alkaloids and the presence of ephedrine and saponin (Southwest School of Botanical Medicine 2002). Another source reports an alkaloid content in the root of 0.1 percent and the presence of choline, pseudoephedrine, beta-phenethylamine, vascin, hipaphorine and related indole alkaloids (Shaman Australis Ethnobotanicals 2002). Perhaps because of these chemicals, arrowleaf sida is unpalatable to cattle (Kuniata and Rapp 2001). Arrowleaf sida has significant medicinal applications for which it is cultivated throughout India. The pounded leaves are used to relieve swelling,the fruits are used to relieve headache, the mucilage is used as an emollient, and the root is used to treat rheumatism (Parrotta 2001). Australian Aborigines use the herb to treat diarrhea. Leaves are smoked in Mexico and a tea is prepared in India for the stimulation it provides (Shaman Australis Ethnobotanicals 2002).

Plant Germplasm (definition): Any portion of genetic material that can be grown into a live plant. Examples include seeds, stem cuttings (via many methods including air layering), root cuttings, root divisions (multiplication via division), leaf cuttings, leaf fragments (in tissue culture), rooted nodes (vines), “eyes” (offshoots from potato tubers), cacti pieces, etc. The term germplasm can also be used to describe a collection of genetic resources for an organism such as as a seed collection or, for trees, a nursery. ROOT CROPS: Buy live tropical Yam (Dioscorea) plants. Edible Sweet Potato (Ipomoea batatas) tubers for sale. Order Live Malanga (Xanthosoma), Eddo & Taro (Colocasia esculenta) corms. Purchase perennial ginger (Zingiber officinale), cardamom (Elettaria cardamomum) & turmeric (Curcuma longa zedoaria) rhizomes. Selling Jicama (Pachyrhizus erosus) 'yam bean' seeds. Live Semi-Aquatic Water Chestnut (Eleocharis dulcis) bulbs shipped worldwide. Note: Typically our bulb type live products are dunked into bucket full of an aqueous (water) solution of "Myco Madness" (mycorrhizal fungi), Humic Acid & Fulvic Acid along with the PGR's Brassinolide, Indole Butryic Acid (IBA) and Naphthalene Acetic Acid (NAA) to ensure root growth is triggered. Next the germplasm materials are packed into organic Coconut Coir which itself contains natural rooting hormones. If you intend to eat the roots you'll be ordering include a note and the roots won't be dunked in the PGR solution (which is more effective than compound powder or gel even though water doesn't 'stick' to it). EXCLUSIVE: All live plants, bulbs and recalcitrant seeds are regularly inoculated with numerous strains of beneficial symbiotic mycorrhizal fungi & bacteria (listed below) essential for strong healthy plant roots. Generally this is one of the last aspects of horticultural science that gardeners learn about when it should be the first. Beneficial Ectomycorrhiza: Laccaria bicolor, Laccaria laccata, Pisiolithus tinctorius, Rhizopogon amylopogon, Rhizopogon fulvigleba, Rhizopogon luteolus, Rhizopogon roseolus, Rhizopogon subcaerulescens, Rhizopogon villosulus, Rhizopogon vulgaris, Scleroderma cepa, Scleroderma citrinni, Suillus granulatus, Suillus punctatepies Beneficial Endomycorrhiza: Gigaspora brasilianum, Gigaspora margarita, Gigaspora monosporum, Glomus aggregatum, Glomus clarum, Glomus deserticola, Glomus entunicatum, Glomus intraradices, Glomus monosporum, Glomus mosseae Beneficial Tricoderma: Trichoderma harzianum, Trichoderma koningii Beneficial Bacteria: Acidovorax facilis, Azotobacter chroococcum, Azotobacter polymxa, Bacillus azotoformans, Bacillus coagulans, Bacillus licheniformis, Bacillus megaterium, Bacillus pumilus, Bacillus stearothermophilus, Bacillus subtilis, Bacillus thuringiensis, Cellulomonas flavigena, Paenibacillus dorum, Paenibacillus florescence, Paenibacillus gordonae, Paenibacillus polymyxa, Psuedomonas aureofaceans, Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Most of these strains are available in water soluble form in "Myco Madness" (available here at M.S.B.).  MASS SPECTRUM BOTANICALS (Tampa, Florida): Germplasm Factory - Micronursery - Commercial Seed Bank Areas of Intent & Expertise: >Custom heirloom vegetable seed vaults. >Live Plants of a useful nature (exotic fruits, tactical landscaping plants, etc.). >Plant growth hormone regulators (PGR's) and other Plant Biostimulants. >Rare edible perennial jungle plants (green leafy vegetable year round tropical plants). >Drought tolerant edible landscape xeriscaping. >Complimentary Cancer Survival medicinal plants; >Cutting edge skin, weight & diabetes health targeting. >Laboratory-spec seed sprouting, germination & vegetative propagation kits. >Advanced horticultural science. >Ethnobotanical supplies. >Isolated herbal extracts.
