Toothache Plant

         
 
7 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 

(Spilanthes acmella) Pretty yellow and red cone-shaped flowers and leaves have properties similar to Echinacea; said to enhance the immune system, improve digestion and help nausea. The name toothache plant comes from the numbing properties it produces when the leaves and flowers are chewed, and it is used by many herbalists for this purpose. It is a tender perennial but can be grown as an annual in most areas.

Review:

This was a neat plant to grow. It's not the prettiest but it's cool. Germinates easy, just toss on top of the soil, wet it, keep warm, and it does the rest.

Review:

It may be a little early to do a review, but I started a geodesic dome greenhouse and somethings have come up well and others have not. I planted quite a few different varieties of plants and don't remember for sure how many seeds i put in each grow pot. It seems to have took a longer time to germinate but we have had a very cool spring and so has everything else. but once the toothache plant came up it seems to have germinated around 4 separate plants per pot. I transplanted a few today into soil and they seem to be a hardy plant so I am sure they will do well. I hope to remember to add a review this fall when the outside season is finished!

Review:

These are neat little plants. I grew them in really poor soil and barely watered them and they did fairly well. Now that the rain has come they look great! Be aware that they start with little whitish flowers. I had thought that the seeds I got were mislabeled and it was some other type of plant. The numbing feeling is pretty cool. It can burn if you eat too much. My Dad took two of the pots home with him as he has a bad tooth and he actually plans on using it!
