Hoodia pilifera, also known as Trichocaulon piliferum, is a wonderful leafless succulent that grows up to 80 cm in height. A native to South Africa, this easy to grow species belongs to the Asclepiadaceae family. Suitable for outdoor settings, these plants are adored for erect stems & stunning flowers that appear in the summers.

Flowering
This succulent shrub produces attractive pinkish-brown flowers during August or September. The Hoodia plant blooms are rewarding as they look great in any setting.

Watering
During the growing season, water this variety occasionally. But remember to wait till the soil has dried out in between waterings. These plants can suffer neglect and go for days without water because they are adapted to live in climates with high temperatures.


Soil
A gritty, extremely free-draining compost with added perlite or pumice is excellent for your Hoodia pilifera.

Hardiness
These plants are hardy in zones 11a to 11b. They are frost-sensitive and cannot tolerate temperatures less than 32° F (0° C).

Light
Hoodia plants thrive in full sun or partial shade during the summer.

Propagation
The ideal method of propagation is through seeds which can be taken throughout the year.

Despite how beautiful Hoodia plant pictures are, any plant enthusiast would want to cultivate one in their garden and add it to their collection. You can find this species on Planet Desert!
