Kanna Seeds - Grow your own Sceletium tortuosum plants

Sceletium tortuosum, commonly known as Kanna, is a succulent plant native to South Africa. The plant was first documented by Jan van Riebeeck, a Dutch colonial administrator and founder of Cape Town. Local people chew it for mood elevation (probably since prehistoric times) and nowadays it is sometimes used as a natural alternative to chemical antidepressants.

The plant is carefree and makes a great houseplant, but is hard to find in garden centers, so you need a supplier. This is where seeds come in handy. Growing from seed is great for plant enthusiasts and those who want to become self supporters.

The first step to growing your own Kanna supply is the germination. First you will need to remove the germination inhibitor from the seeds - to do so, simply soak them in distilled (or bottled) water for an extended time (at least a week), while changing the water daily. Or, as an alternative, treat the seeds with gibberellic acid - this causes a faster and more evenly germination than any other method.

Place the seeds on a well-draining, sandy soil, such as a off-the-shelf cactus mix or a mixture of compost, sand and perlite and cover the pot with plastic foil in order to keep the moisture at a steady level. The optimal germination temperature is about 15-18°C. Within two weeks to two months you should see your Sceletium tortuosum raise its head and once the plant has developed some ramification one can take cuttings, which will root rather easily.
