Since the viability rate of the fresh seeds is about 20% while that of not-so-fresh seeds is about 10%, you can plant about 5 to 10 seeds per pot. Since the seeds are so light, there is a good probability that they will pollinate in the nearby region instead, as they can be easily blown away with the wind and be dropped at a place in the surrounding.
Tips for planting your kratom seeds:
- Choose a perfect spot. Favorably an area that is moist, fertile and with a good drainage.
- Light conditions just as in tropical rain forests. The area should get sufficient sunlight to give the seeds the warmth it needs to thrive. But not too sunny, which can result into drying of soil.
- Drop about 5-10 seeds in the pot. Make sure you have identified what the actual seed looks like. Many times kratom seeds are mistaken for the part of the seed pod when in fact the kratom seed is very tiny.
- Cover it with a thin layer of fertile soil
- Sprinkle water regularly
- A gentle breeze is said to enhance the alkaloid production in the plant and so it is recommended to find a spot which gets considerable amount of breeze. And if not, one can use a fan to produce a light breeze.
- Be sure to provide the seeds with an appropriate amount of fertilizer and plant food regularly, especially during the early phase.
Kratom’s pain-killing effects are very pronounced, and are much more effective than OTC substances when dealing with chronic pain. It is these potent pain-killing effects that have allowed many to become entirely pharmaceutical free (an inspiringly common event within the kratom community).
As public awareness increases and fear-mongering and outright disinformation dissipate, you can expect to see this plant as a commonplace alternative to riskier treatments.

Native to the Southeast Asia, kratom (Mitragyna Speciosa) is a powerful medicinal plant used by thousands throughout the world. The medicinal potentials of this plant are vast, some of the most prominent include: pain relief, mood lifting, energy and immune system stimulation.
There are entire forums on the use and benefits of this impressive plant, which speaks for this plant’s virtue more than we ever could.
Origins & Locale
The use of kratom goes back several thousand years, but it was first formally documented growing abundantly in Thailand by Dutch botanist Pieter Willem Korthals in the early 19th century.
While the birthplace of Mitragyna Speciosa is unknown, it has flourished abundantly in Southeast Asia and Indochina — growing naturally in regions such as:
- The Sunda Isles
As a result of adapting to these different climates and regions, this plant has evolved and diverged into a variety of strains and vein types, each of which vary in both in effects and potency; it is these differences that have made kratom such an incredibly versatile plant. Further on, we will cover these strain differences at length to give you a strong understanding of the varied uses, effects, and potential applications of this unique plant.
Uses of Kratom
The medicinal effects of kratom are both highly flexible and broad due to variations in alkaloid profile between plants as well as the unique qualities of the alkaloids themselves, which are largely unlike any others known to exist. Traditionally, it has been used for:
- Pain relief
- Energy Promotion
- Anxiolytic (Anti-Anxiety)
- Insomnia Relief
- Immune System Stimulation
- Nootropic (Cognition Enhancing)
- Lowered blood sugar
In addition to this large range of medicinal applications, this plant also has many other positive secondary properties such as high-antioxidant and vitamin and mineral content, which has made it an item of interest for general health purposes as well.
