Pack of 10 fresh Hoodia Gondonii seeds. When cultivating Hoodia gordonii seeds, plant no deeper than 0.5cm in sandy loam. Overwatering will lead to rotting of the seeds, thus the area must have a proper drainage system to rid the excess damp. Keep the planted seeds in a sunny position and water about 3 - 4 times depending on the draining system. When the seeds have germinated and are strong enough, separate the seeds to grow individually in pots. Hoodia gordonii is a cactus-like succulent plant, native to the Kalahari Desert in southern Africa.1 Due to over harvest and slow growth, Hoodia is now considered an endangered species. Hoodia grows in clumps of upright stems with tan flowers and thorns, and a strong, unpleasant odor. Hoodia has received publicity in recent times for its natural appetite suppressant properties. It was noticed that the nomadic Bushmen, (who call it Xhoba) ate the stem of the Hoodia plant to stave off hunger during long hunting trips in the sparsely vegetated area.
