Careful cultivation is essential for optimizing the quality of root material for forskolin content. Critical factors that affect the growth and yield of C. forskohlii include climate and soil requirements. C. forskohlii is a species native to subtropical and warm, temperate habitats, and it grows well in loamy or sandy-loam soil which has a pH of 6.4 to 7.9. Approximately, 1-500 g of root material can be obtained from a single plant, and the forskolin content of the roots varies from 0.07-0.58% on a dried basis.
