+ you can make poison and rule the world!!! LOL We have these even up here in Idaho but they don't get very tall and our seeds don't mature! Thanks for the video and best of luck!
when you chop and drop do they grow back?
Did you have to soak the seeds for 8 hours in 86 degree Fahrenheit water?
WHERE DO YOU GET EM?
love your videos, I am curious what your water bill is, up in Tucson water gets very expensive
The story of Ricinus
The story of Ricinus communis in 121 seconds. Though ricin, the toxin in the residue after the seeds, 'castor beans', have been crushed to release castor oil, is one of the most poisonous natural substances it does much less harm than hysterical stories would have you believe.
For more information about this plant please visit http://www.thepoisongarden.co.uk/atoz/ricinus_communis.htm
In the television series Breaking Bad they extracted the active ingredient in the beans to make the poison, and there is no doubt that in the concentrated form it is very deadly. However, you are right in the fact that ingesting a lethal dose from the raw plant material is highly unlikely. An analogous compassion could be the the highly potent effects of the drug cocaine, compared to indigenous farmers chewing the leaves of the Coca plant while working in the field.
is this bad for your hair or skin?
abrin is worst than ricin ._.
I collected the seeds to drill for beads oh dear threw them out
Ricinus communis or
Ricinus communis or 'Castor Oil plants' are some of the most impressive tropical plants that you can grow from seed for your garden. These tropical jungle giants grow to enormous architectural plants in just one growing season. Ricinus (castor oil plants) are not difficult to grow from seed, and can be grown easily on a sunny windowsill. Ricinis plants grow well in the UK and other temperate climates, but do need staking against strong winds. The plants are highly toxic, so please take care when handling the plants and especially the seeds.

Yum just need 3.33 USD to get some nice ricin
I like this channel. Where can I get a couple viable beans. I'm in New Zealand and broke as F.
the warning about the toxicity should have been more than a footnote. These plants are the source of the poison ricin.
I love this plant so much! I have been growing it for many years and have learned alot about it. Here are some of my notes:
-If you want to make them grow faster, plant them in a big pot, at least 40cm in diameter per plant and plant them in pairs or in 3's, instead of planting them into the ground.
-If you want to grow them even much faster, stop it from flowering and cut off the buds as soon as you see them. Letting them develop buds and fruit will strongly slow down the growing process.
-These plants are extremely hungry for nitrogen, I can fertilize the living hell out of them! I give 3 different long-term fertilizers, Hornshavings, Blood meal and especially Ammonium Nitrate. Not all at once mind you. Then I also give liquid fertilizer (8+8+6) twice a week and the larger they are, the more I give at once, up to 3 times the recommended dosage!
-The warmer and more light they get the better.
-They develop much bigger leafs when planted in the ground
-You can buy up to 8 or 9 different variations of this plant, from extremely deep red leafs (New Zealand Purple) and stem to light green (Zanzi Palm, Zanzibariensis). The green variations grow the biggest leaves, up to 1 meter in diameter. And the green variation 'Zansi Palm' grows the tallest of all, up to 5meters.
-They need ALOT of water on hot days. One pot (60cm diameter) with 3 plants will need up to 30 liters of water in one day!
-You can, if you have the space, take them inside in winter, and cultivate them until it is warm again outside and grow them in the garden.
-In their natural habitat, they reach a height of 13meters over 2-3 years!
I have so much more, but I will leave it at that :)
You can start sowing these february but you will have to repot it a few times before you can put them outisde. Btw. i plant them much deeper so the stems will be better when repotting. And about toxicity its not that scary only digesting the plant or the seeds is toxic handling can be done without gloves otherwise i would be long dead by now ;-)
