Information

The Hoodia Gordonii is a beautiful succulent plant that can live under harsh conditions. In nature you encounter the Hoodia Gordonii in a large area of ​​the Kalahari desert in Namibia and South Africa. Two small populations are also known to grow in desert areas in Botswana and Angola.

The Hoodia Gordonii grows into small shrubs of 50 to 70 cm. This Hoodia branches from the base with sometimes as many as 50 side arms. The stems of this Hoodia are green in color and the ribs are bumpy in shape. The latter provides extra protection against the sun. The Hoodia Gordonii can withstand extremely hot temperatures of up to 50 °C. The spines are light brown in color and about 1 cm long.

The Hoodia Gordonii starts to bloom in October. Extreme heat in the summer can promote flowering in this Hoodia. The flowers are round in shape and reddish brown in color. In older plants of Hoodia Gordonii, the flowers can reach a diameter of 9 cm. The flowers of this Hoodia are pollinated by flies. This means they don't smell very leaky. The flowers fall under the carrion flowers. Just like Huernia and Orbea species.

The Hoodia is not only a very beautiful and characteristic plant. The Hoodia Gordonii is also known for its hunger-suppressing properties. It is also sometimes called the wonder plant of the twentieth century because it can be found in many waste pills, powders, etc.

The original inhabitants of the Kalahari desert ate Hoodia Gordonii when they were on long journeys in search of food. In addition to the fact that Hoodia Gordonii satisfies hunger, your senses and stamina also improve. This especially helps in finding food and hunting prey.
