Ephedra Sinica Seeds: Grow Your Own Ephedra Plant At Home

Ephedra sinica, also known as Chinese ephedra or Ma Huang is a plant from the family of Ephedraceae that grows in parts of north-eastern China, Russia and Mongolia.

The effect of Ephedra is stimulating and energizing and helps to reduce the hunger feeling. Here in the West, Ephedra has recently become popular as being a natural stimulant and weight-loss supplement. In fact, the medicine ephedrine is derived from Ephedra, and has a multitude of uses. It is often utilised in the medical field to treat numerous conditions, including hypotension, allergic reactions, asthma, and nasal congestion, to name just a few.

Growing ephedra is not very difficult and doesn’t require any special growing skills. You can germinate the plant and grow it in moderate temperatures indoors or outdoors although ephedra likes it on the warmer side with plenty of sun. Should you happen to live in a colder climate like in the UK it can be best if you grow the plant indoors.

Making Ephedra Tea

You can simply pick the leaves of the ephedra plant and hang them to dry. Once dried, grind the leaves and use them to make ephedra tea that will provide the energizing and stimulating effect. The recommended dosage for two cups of ephedra tea is if you take 10 grams of dried leaves and have them steep for 10 minutes. Afterwards, pour the tea through a coffee filter. You can add sugar, honey or sweetener as per your own taste.

    Braucht Geduld
    3 von 10 Samen gekeimt. in Erde. Nächster Versuch - feuchtes Küchenpapier. Braucht eben mehrere Versuche

    Guter Schnitt
    Habe 5 Samen in Kaktuserde ausgelegt, 3 sind gekeimt, guter Schnitt würde ich sagen. Lieben Wärme und hohe Luftfeuchtigkeit, habe das also Anfang Juni ins Gewächshaus gestellt und habe jetzt ca. 15 cm hohe Pflanzen. Sehen gesund aus und freue mich auf eine erste Ernte, denke mal, nächstes Jahr, dann. Verpackung und Lieferung Top, die Anbauanleitung habe ich allerdings auf einer anderen Seite herausgefunden, die hat mir leider gefehlt, trotzdem bin ich sehr zufrieden und würde wieder hier bestellen.

    So weit so gut , aber ...
    Schön dass man überhaupt solche Samen kaufen kann bzw erhältlich sind . Allerdings istbis jetzt davon noch kein einziger gekeimt . Hab es zuerst mit Erde versucht , hat nicht geklappt . Dann mit feuchtem Papiertuch , nach 5 Tagen immer noch nichts . Da wäre es gut einen Keimhinweis zu geben wie die am besten zum keimen gebracht werden können .

    It is a plant of temperate climate. Do not likes a lot of water. Needs a lot of sun. Rocky soil works fine.

    Su 20 semi, mi sono nate solo 3 germogli.. Non ho mai pazientato così tanto per una pianta.. Essendo un cespuglio desertico, ci mette tanto a crescere

    30% success rate
    I planted 6 seed, 2 germinated. seedlings look healthy and enjoy soil for cactus and the heat mat. I've put some lights over. when they are ready they will join the greenhouse and the garden

    Good quality!
    11/20 have germinated ! Due to the rather bad results of the other in the reviews I want to tell you how I did it.I carefully removed the husk removed the husk. That was it.xD

    A. B.

    4 out of 20 sprouted
    You won't get 100% germination that's for sure, but you'll get something out of it!

    N. J.

    5 of 20 sprouted. Not too bad for 5€.
