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.

    All seeds germinated


    Leider hat bis jetzt noch kein Samen gekeimt von 15. 5 hab ich noch vielleicht klappts ja bei einem von den letzten 5 Samen 🤷‍


    gehen fast alle von den 20 einwandfrei auf


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


    graines ma-huang
    plusieurs essais patience et je suis dans l'immédiat satisfaite


    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


    Bad quality
    Tres mauvaises graines, une seule a germé sur les deux paquets achetés...


    Hab die Samen mal mitbestellt, damit ich über den Mindestbestellwert komme. Gibt es in normalen Gartenshops noch etwas billiger, aber der Preis ist OK. Von den 20 Samen sind einige sehr klein, und als ich 10 Samen in Wasser eingeweicht habe, sind 3 (kleine) sofort untergegangen. Das sind die schlechten Samen. Von den restlichen 7 hat jetzt einer gekeimt, allerdings kann das auch daran liegen, dass es im Moment (Februar) auf der Fensterbank nachts kalt wird. Insgesamt sind es 20 Samen, die kleinen hätte man ruhig vor dem Verkauf aussortieren können. Wenn am Ende 1 oder 2 Pflanzen kommen bin ich zufrieden.


    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


    A la espera
    Por el momento, dos plantadas y ninguna ha germinado. Espero sea mala suerte. Por lo demás, el servicio y la casa muy bien.
