Hoodia gordonii flower & buds

    Newer Older

    Hoodia gordonii flower and opening buds.

    Hoodia gordonii is probably one of the most famous South African Stapeliads due to it's use in the Diet Industry (ancient wisdom from the Koi San Bushman of the Kalahari Desert). There is a good chance that this plant is hybridised, as cross-pollination in Hoodia plants are quite common (especially in cultivation).
