Sceletium Tortuosum is a mesemb succulent native to South Africa, where it was historically chewed by the local people for mood elevation. Sceletium, or kanna , has captured the attention of researchers and is sometimes used today as a natural alternative to chemical antidepressants. Unfortunately, widespread interest in the plant has led to over-harvesting and endangerment. It is a specialty plant that is hard to find in nurseries or garden centers. Despite that, kanna is easy to maintain and makes a great houseplant. It grows rather quickly and can even flower just by placing it in a sunny window. Outside it is drought-tolerant and may be able to survive a brief frost, although precautions should be taken to avoid this if possible. The small flowers are delicately beautiful and can vary in color but are typically white or yellow. Growing from seed is great for plant enthusiasts who enjoy a little bit of a challenge, but cuttings will root rather easily for growers with less patience or confidence. Plants prefer a well-draining, sandy soil, which should be watered when it has dried out a bit. A commercial cactus mix or a mixture of compost, sand and perlite will work well. Sceletium can be fertilized occasionally, but does not particularly require it.
