Kanna (Sceletium tortuosum), Kougoed, Seed

Origin: South Africa
Harvest: October 2023
Germination period: approx. 2-4 weeks

You can choose between Choose 10 and 20 seeds.

Growing instructions:

These seeds are light germinators, which is why they should only be covered thinly or not at all with a growing medium (soil/cactus soil mixture) for germination. Pre-soaking in water for 24 hours has proven to be beneficial.

Then fill the pots with a loose mixture of growing soil (cactus soil or growing soil with perlite, fine rock granules), spray with water, place the seeds on the soil and cover only thinly with substrate. It is best to cover the growing pots with plastic wrap and aerate daily or keep the soil moist. The pots can also be placed in suitable indoor greenhouses until the seeds have germinated and the seedlings are a few inches tall. It is important to ensure a supply of fresh air at least once a day to prevent and avoid mold.
The seeds need a lot of light and sufficient heat for germination, because they will not germinate

After germination of seeds seedlings can be very slowly accustomed to the drier indoor air or fresh air outdoors after a few weeks.

Requires outdoors a sunny location and a well water-draining substrate or soil in which it is planted. If young plants are cultivated outdoors, they should nevertheless be somewhat protected - especially from wind and rain. If necessary, cultivation in a greenhouse with sufficient sunlight is recommended.


Interesting facts about Kanna:

Sceletium tortuosum is a succulent "herb" also known as "kanna" for its psychoactive effects. It is taken in parts of Africa before events such as hunting (traditional use) for its cognitive effects to improve concentration and prevent fatigue.

Kanna is a true botanical treasure and a botanical miracle. It is a wonderful herb that, according to traditional lore, can bring about physical and mental relaxation.

Sceletium stimulates the brain-immanent function of serotonin far better than L-tryptophan, 5-hydroxytryptophan and Griffonia. What makes it superior to these agents is that it does not lead to drowsiness, which commonly occurs when using the precursors of serotonin.

All drugs available to combat depression are either selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors or serotonin-dopamine reuptake inhibitors. They work by developing serotonin in the brain, but this leads to undesirable side effects.

Not suitable for consumption!
