When it doesn't fit anywhere else

A recent cool (not cold) spell seems to have killed my Salvia, but I have hope for the future since there is some green left and I've read stories about it coming back from roots. Now I'll have to wait even longer for my leaves!

Anyone have tips for helping my plant come back to life??

It can come back, just keep it watered (fish emulsion formula is good fer regenerative growth) and in lots of light.

Salvia...ick. s'like Nitrous, without the giggles.

Salvia seeds aren't too common. You're going to have to find a cutting somewhere.

Most "seeds" are a ripoff. This site has excellent information and a shop: http://sagewisdom.org/salviashop.html

That's a fine reason to grow it as it will have you growing closer to the Lady Salvia. If you're patient and careful enough to grow it, it's also many times cheaper to do it that way.

Why take something you think is shitty? If you think it's harsh to smoke, why not try chewing it or buy some extract?
