Mucuna Pruriens after transplanting.

They said that this plant is not very kind when you transplant them but these two little beauties are kind to me 😊  I wish I could have taken a photo before I transplanted them.

I only have 5 seeds of this so I am planting it one at a time.

The one with 2 leaves was scarified and soaked for 24hrs. The one with a lot of leaves was soaked for 12hrs.

This is a special request from my mom because this plant is good for people with Parkinsons and my mom has been taking Mucuna Pruriens/Velvet Bean (vitamins) ever since she was diagnosed. She has not taken any meds for Parkinsons because of this. (Read: Reverse Parkinsons by John Pepper)
