Lachenalia algoensis (Hyacinthaceae). The flowers are largely green shading to almost white at the base. They are erect and have very short pedicels making a fairly tight flower spike. Flowering time is spring. Sowing: Seed is best sown in autumn in deep seed trays or pots in a sterilized medium of equal parts fine compost or loam, and river sand. Sow the seed thinly to prevent overcrowding and fungal infection, and to allow sufficient room for each seedling’s bulb to develop. Cover with a thin layer of sand, and keep moist and shaded. Germination should occur within five weeks. Locality: Plettenberg Bay.? Harvest: November 2014.
