Out of stock




Sida Cordifolia is a fast-growing, yellow-flowered perennial native to the plains of India, Cambodia and Sri Lanka. But this species can now be found growing in much of the rest of the world, including Africa, Australia, Hawaii and the southern U.S. Sida cordifolia has a serrated, heart-shaped leaf at each node and reaches approximately two to three feet with maturity. It is these heart-shaped leaves that the name “Cordifolia” refers to. Sida Cordifolia has had relatively limited herbal use in the United States until recent years, but it has been widely used in Ayurveda medicine for thousands of years. The roots, leaves and seeds are all used. Sida cordifolia is reportedly employed for a variety of purposes including as an anti-inflammatory, a diuretic, a metabolism and energy booster, a bronchodilator, an appetite suppressant and an aphrodisiac. The aerial parts of the plant are known to be significant stimulant. Sida cordifolia can be found in energy, weight-lifting and weight-loss supplements.

Growing Information: Since Sida Cordifolia often grows in wastelands it can tolerate poor soils if necessary. However, the soil should be well-draining. Perlite can be added to a commercial potting mix for a suitable medium for growing in containers.
