Hoodia gordonii flowering in habitat
Another beautiful large Hoodia gordonii (with plenty new growth) flowering in habitat (close to Vioolsdrif, Northern Cape, South Africa).
Local Name: Ghaap
Note: This rare slow growing succulent is probably the most famous Southern African Stapeliad due to it's use by the Diet Industry. Hoodia is a natural hunger suppressant and energy booster (ancient wisdom from the Khoisan Bushman of the Kalahari Dessert).
