Beijing Grass is a medicinal herb that boosts the immune system, heals respiratory diseases, and helps rid the body of toxins and poisons. Research shows that it is valued for slowing the spread of breast and colon cancer when tested by scientists from Mahidol University’s Faculty of Pharmacy. Beijing Grass is also considered a safe medicine by the World Herbal Organization’s herbal standards. (These statements have not been evaluated by the FDA). This plant thrives in loose, sandy soil with a neutral pH, planted in a shady area. It needs moderate amounts of water, with more in the hot season. It can be planted year ‘round in tropical areas and in northern areas it should be potted to bring indoors in cold weather. Shoots can be used for propagation. At four months old, Beijing grass is rich in medicinal properties and ready to harvest. When you buy seeds from Palm Beach Medicinal Herbs, you are buying seeds that are fully prepared to stand the test of time. Not only do we grow every variety of seed that we offer, we also know exactly what it takes to make a seed last longer than just one season. With proper moisture and temperature control, our seeds will remain viable with germination rates of 80% and better for many years to come. The secret is how we pack each vial of seed. Within minutes of receiving your order, we locate the varieties of your choice from our thermostatically controlled deep freezer where all of our seed is kept frozen at 0°F until you place your order. Next we fill each glass vial first with moisture absorbing silica beads, then organic cotton, then your seeds, and lastly more cotton for a dry and cozy environment. We ship your glass vials in special packaging to protect your precious investment. Seeds saved with a moisture content of less than 10% and kept in air tight glass vials under frozen conditions are the best saved seeds in the world. Use some seed this year and place the vial with the rest in the freezer for next season.
