Acacia acuminata is an Australian native which grows naturally and in abundance in Western Australia.


Acacia acuminata reportedly contains the indole alkaloid N-dimethyltryptamine (DMT) derived from L-tryptophan and found endogenously in many plants & animals including the mammalian brain. Whilst extremely variable, reports claim around 0.5-1.2% in the phyllode, and 0.6-1.5% in the bark with some ß-carbolines.


Along with other alkaloids and constituents, Acacia acuminata is a powerful plant teacher with a suggested history of use throughout Indigenous Australia. Acacias in general were important food, medicine and material for Australia's First Nations people.


For a higher chance of successful propagation of your Acacia, soak the seeds for 48 hours, then sow in a mix of coarse river sand or native potting mix. Keep moist but not wet and germination should take place within 2 weeks. Once germinated, ensure it has excellent drainage and plant in the sunniest spot in the garden. This species has a symbiotic relationship with certain types of soil bacteria and it may be useful to add a heap of soil from underneath a similar local species of acacia. These nitrogen fixing bacteria form nodules on the roots and fix atmospheric nitrogen to share with other plants in the soil. For micro-endemic species, it may be necessary to get a heap of soil from its native landscape for successful growth to occur.


Approximately 10 seed per packet.
