Hoodia gordonii flower & buds

Hoodia gordonii is probably the most famous South African Stapeliad due to it's use by the Diet Industry Hoodia is a natural hunger suppressant and energy boost (ancient wisdom From the Koi San Bushman of the Kalahari Dessert). This precious (slow growing) natural Desert resource is being exploited hugely for financial gain as a result.

 

Hoodia plants are very often hybridised, as cross-pollination is quite common (especially in cultivation).
