Acacia obtusifolia is an Australian native found primarily along the South-East coast of Australia. This plant tends to grow along rocky ridges of the forest margin and flowers in the summer. This South East QLD seed is genetically quite different from the southern Australian varieties.

Obtusifolia reportedly contains the indole alkaloids N-dimethyltryptamine (DMT) & N-methyltrypamine (NMT), alkaloids derived from L-tryptophan and found endogenously in many plants & animals including the mammalian brain. Whilst extremely varible reports claim up to 0.6% in the bark & 0.2% in the phyllode.

Along with other alkaloids and constituents, obtusifolia is a powerful plant teacher with a suggested history of use throughout Indigenous Australia. Acacias in general were important food, medicine and material for Australia’s First Nations people. It’s population is considered under threat due to overharvesting and land clearing.

For a higher chance of successful propagation of your Acacia, soak the seeds for 48 hours, then sow in a mix of coarse river sand or native potting mix. Keep moist but not wet and germination should take place within 2 weeks. Once germinated, ensure it has excellent drainage and plant in the sunniest spot in the garden. This species has a symbiotic relationship with certain types of soil bacteria and it may be useful to add a heap of soil from underneath a similar local species of acacia. These nitrogen fixing bacteria form nodules on the roots and fix atmospheric nitrogen to share with other plants in the soil. For micro-endemic species, it may be necessary to get a heap of soil from its native landscape for successful growth to occur.

Approximately 10 seeds per packet.
