1000 seeds Per Packet Ornamental use only - not for consumption. Plant responsibly. Nicotiana rustica, known in South America as Mapacho, is a plant in the Solanaceae family. It is a very potent variety of tobacco. The high concentration of nicotine in its leaves makes it useful for creating organic pesticides. Rustica is also used for entheogenic purposes by South American shamans. Growing in the rainforest it contains up to twenty times more nicotine than common North American varieties such as N. tabacum. Other reasons for its shamanic use are the comparatively high levels of MAOI beta-carbolines, including harman and norharman. Nicotiana Rustica has an extremely high nicotine content. The nicotine content can reach as high as 9% giving it some use as a natural organic pesticide. It produces millions of seeds, hundreds of small yellow to greenish flowers, and grows to about four feet tall. This is related to smoking tobacco, and has been used for the same purpose in the past.
