The red strain originated from WA, Australia. The species originates from East Africa, Ethiopia, and the Arabian Peninsula, where it is commonly known as Khat. There are hundreds of different strains.

Among communities from the areas where the plant is native, khat has a history as a social custom dating back thousands of years. It contains the alkaloid cathinone, a stimulant.

Khat is an erect, evergreen, glabrous tree that grows up to 25m in height.

Catha edulis is an arid species so only water as needed. It does not like having its roots kept wet so ensuring your soil and/or pot allows for good drainage. Introduce to increasing sun light gradually as too much summer sun too early can be damaging. However, once adapted this species prefers full sun. It is frost intolerant.

Common name: Kat; Qat; Ghat; Chat; Bushman's Tea; Arabian-Tea; Cat; Quat; Miraa.
