    If anyone can offer me any leads or seeds to feed my needs please let me know. Mandragora officinum is a non-CP species that is very rare and difficult, and I want to have a go with it.

    Let me know and we'll work out a trade.

    TIA

    Tamlin,

    I contacted world plant search for you, here is the response I recivied:

In fact, the name they use is "Mandragora autumnalis (officinarum in part)", whatever that means.

    The following UK sources will ship to the US, probably at prohibitive risk and expense, and there may be legal restrictions on this particular plant.

    Wow, Chris! Thank you so much. That should give me something to work with for sure! That was a heck of a lot of research and I really appreciate it!

    Yes, this is Mandrake.
