Hoodia 'Pilifera' hybrid


Hoodia pilifera is one of easiest species to grow but prone to root rot due to overwatering and lack of fresh air. Water normally in the growing season, sparsely in the winter. 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 32°F (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 pumiceis suitable, and clay pots help the plants to dry out between watering. Indoors only in brightest position. Propagation is done mainly from seed. Cuttings are not really an option, as the severed ends very rarely form a callus from where roots will eventually form. Seeds are produced in March and April of each year (Europe). The seed horns must be semi-dry and starting to split down the middle before seed can be collected. If you try to take a cutting allows it to dry several days before planting.
