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).

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.

    Very disappointed
    Only one germinated after a long time. But in the end it quickly died. I did everything for it to work but in was a disaster. I am disappointed

    Zero germination
    Could have done with better instructions on here for germination, had to search elsewhere online to find how to germinate. I will leave them where they are in the hopes that something happens but at the moment I'm not hopeful.

    Niet uitgekomen...
    Twee sterren omdat de bestelling goed is verlopen. Helaas tweemaal de zaden proberen uit te laten komen, op verschillende tijden in het jaar, echter beide keren zijn alle zaden NIET uitgekomen. Dit is echt zonde van je geld! (ik heb groene vingers en plant het hele jaar door zaden, al meerdere jaren, ik weet wel wat ik doe maar dit ging op geen enkel opzicht) Aan de service ligt het niet, de kwaliteit van de zaden is echter heel slecht.. Jammer! Zonde van het geld

    Hard to germinate
    They are not easy to germinate. I put them for 20 minutes into 3% H2O2 and then for almost a week into 0,1-0 ,3 % H202. The water was exchanged daily. With this procedure 2 of 3 seeds germinated and now I have 2 healthy tiny mini plants (2 weeks from the start). So the seeds in general work, but you should have experience, how get seeds germinated.

    Toller Support, mit etwas Mühe klappts
    Ich habe zuerst 10 Samen ausgesät, daraus nur einen Keimling bekommen der kurz darauf kaputt ging. Der Support hat mir Tipps gegeben wie ich häufige Fehler vermeide und mir eine neue Packung kostenfrei zukommen lassen. Ich habe 5 Samen in kleinen Töpfen mit Kaktusmix in den Propagator Pro 2 gestellt und 3 sind bereits gekeimt. Ich bin nun wirklich sehr zufrieden.

    Growing Kanna
    Planted in 1 part planting soil, 1 part coco coir, and 2 parts 2-5mm pumice with a plastic bag over, seeds where just sprinkled on top, no digging. 8/10 germinated in about two weeks. For germination, treat these as any other cactus/ succulent.
