Lobelia inflata has a long use as an entheogenic and emetic substance. The plant was widely used by the Penobscots and was widely used in the New England. Indian Tobacco, also known as "pukeweed", is still used today in modern medecine.
Growing from seeds:
These seeds need a stratification first, meaning that they have to be treated with cold for several weeks. This can easily be done by planting them directly into your garden at autumn and then they'll start to germinate in spring.
Second option is just simulating the winter season by putting seeds, together with some soil, into the fridge for about 4-6 weeks.
Third option is a treatment with GA3 (Gibberellic acid) for about 6 hours. Then they can be planted directly. Instructions for GA3 usage can be found in the item description of this phytohormone right here in my store.
After stratification seeds should be sprinkled on moist soil and gently press them onto it. Do not cover them, because they need light to germinate.
