Hoodia Ruschii
(Asclepiadaceae)
5 Seeds


Hoodia ruschii, despite its spiky appearance, is not a cactus. It is less popular than hoodia gordonii but is another succulent that was eaten by indigenous people of southern Africa to ward off hunger during long hunting excursions. In fact, what most people do not realize is that many species of hoodia reportedly served the same purpose. Hoodia Ruschii is native to Namibia. Plant's are threatened where they coexist with diamond hoards and by overharvesting. However, in recent years, the plant has become common in cultivation by succulent collectors and possibly for commercial production along with hoodia gordonii. These seeds are nursery-grown and have not contributed to the exploitation of wild species. . WE ALSO HAVE HOODIA GORDONII SEEDS available.



Growing Information:
Hoodia is easy to grow. Make sure to use a sandy well-draining soil. A commercial cactus potting soil with some perlite added is ideal. Sterilizing the soil is recommended, although not entirely necessary. Fill small pots with soil and pat it down lightly. Place your seeds on top and cover with a thin layer of soil. It should be just enough to hide the seeds. Sit the pot in water and allow the water to wick up through to bottom or spray the soil with a mister. Keep warm and in bright light. A sunny window should be fine. Maintain soil dampness for about a month while the root systems are developing. Over time, gradually increase the amount of light and heat and decrease the amount of water. Hoodia is extremely drought tolerant. Be sure to repot as the plant grows because hoodia likes to develop large root systems.
