Khat is bush up to 4/5 meters high. Quite
a strong plant, which can easily be cultivated
in any(sub)tropical region.
Although a dry climate and earth is appreciated.
In more colder regions it can be grown in pots.
It needs an airy earth,
not to much water, especially in the winter.
Mine even had a little bit of frost, which it
survived unharmed. Another winter
I kept it warmer, which caused
the plants a lot of loss of leaves.
The bush can easily be multiplied by cuttings,
a little root powder and a warm and humid place
(Yes, this time humidity is
needed) help a lot, the younger twigs are more
fitfor multiplying. Once the cuttings have roots,
they can be kept under drier conditions.
If you live in a country, where fresh khat
is available, that can be used very well, I know it
is available in Holland ( ofcourse ), Israel,
Yemen and all over eastern Africa.
I have been told that there, different varieties,
for example there should be a more red, less
bitter but stronger variety in Israel
(I like to know more about that).
I am afraid this plant is illegal in the US, but
what is illegal?
Follow the timeless Law, whatever is under
the spell of time, will go. For sure Khat and other
sacred plants survive the local laws easily.
