12 June 2021 looks like the #castorbean plant is gonna make it after all -- it's started putting out new leaves again. #ricinuscommunis #castoroilplant #poisonous #deadly #beautifulbutlethal

Anybody who's grown #castorbean before, should I pick off this first seed pod to stimulate the plant to grow more branches and leaves? I want it to get big and tall. 21 May 2021 #ricinuscommunis #castoroilplant heh, and doesn't that spiky pink seed pod just scream "HEY WATCH OUT DON'T EAT ME"

Brought the #castorbean plant up from the basement grow tent into the shade outside to harden off. Tried to pollinate this one today. We'll see what happens #grownfromseed #fromseed #growyourown #castorbean-flower #ricinuscommunis

#castorbean plant #grownfromseed in a red solo party cup -- the leaves remind me of open umbrellas -- and it's definitely making a flower bud 25 Apr 2021 #ricinuscommunis #ricinus #poisonous

#castorbean plant #grownfromseed -- 1 seed planted in a 12-oz red solo cup with a couple drainage cuts in the bottom. Here's the first leaf that looks like a mini version of the adult. Can't wait to put this baby outside. #ricinuscommunis #ricinus-communis 8 Apr 2021
