The seeds appear quite difficult to germinate.  I have been told they take
three to six months in 90+ humidity in 90+ F. temp. to germinate and that the
plants are not harvested before three years.  Three years growth does not
produce a large plant and remember the source of the Ibogaine is in the bark
of the root and may run anywhere from less than 1% to 3% alkaloid content in
the root bark for average plants.

The Ibogaine Dossier is the Web's main independent source of information on
ibogaine and related substances. It is available from: (European mirror) (U.S. mirror)
