Growing Eyebright
Answered by: Conrad Richter
Question from: Kevin Arthun
Posted on: March 4, 1999

I am very interested in the possibility of cultivating eyebright. Has anyone done it? If so, who and how?

Not that we know of. Eyebright is a semi-parasite that attaches to neighbouring grasses. So even if we could get the seeds to germinate (which were not able to do) it is unlikely that the seedlings would have survived long unless the right grasses were present and the conditions were right for eyebright to adhere to grass roots.
