Hoodia gordonii

Description: Hoodia gordonii is a leafless fat-stemmed and spiny succulent plant similar to a cactus. In the early stages only one stem is produced but at a later stage the plant produces clusters of green upright stem. Mature plants can have as many as 50 individual branches and weigh as much as 30 kg. Plants under ideal conditions can attain a height of 1 m. Hoodia gordonii can under ideal conditions live for 25 years in cultivation. In the wild they probably don't live much longer than 15 years.
Blooming season: Flowers are normally borne in August or September. Hoodia takes duration of 5 years to be completely mature, till its flowers appear.

Cultivation: It is one of easiest species to grow but prone to root rot due to overwatering’s and lack of fresh air. Water normally in the growing season, sparsely in the winter. It is usually recommended to over-winter them in warm conditions (at 10° C), but despite their African origins they seem to grow well and flower without the extra heat which one might have thought necessary, and occasional temperatures near 0°C (or less) are tolerated, if kept dry.

Spring: In the spring leaving them out in the rain may provide them with the water they need.

Summer: In the summer months they will grow well in full sun or partial shade and tolerate heavy rain but will be just as happy if the season is dry.

Potting medium: Since roots are quite shallow, a gritty, very free draining compost with extra perlite or pumice is suitable, and clay pots help the plants to dry out between watering. Indoors only in brightest position.

Perfect!

Ordered this little cactus on a Sunday and it arrived the next Tuesday, super quick and easy shipping! The plant arrived in perfect condition, it was wrapped up and protected so well, all the dirt and rocks stayed in tact too. Plant is healthy and even bigger than I expected. Love it!
