Albuca aurea (100 seeds)


Out of stock

Albuca aurea. (Hyacintaceae) Golden Tamarak. The glossy, dark green strap-like foliage is tough and stately even when the plant is not in bloom. The flowers are yellow and are held in congested clusters at the top of the spikes. The flowers are generally produced sporadically throughout the growing season, mainly during the early summer and fall. Sowing: Fill a pot with a moist, gritty, loam-based compost. Gently firm down and level the surface. Scatter your seeds over the surface, taking care not to sow them too thickly. Gently sprinkle a thin layer of vermiculite or fine grit over the seeds, covering the whole surface of the compost. Leave the pot in a greenhouse or on a warm windowsill, covered with a clear plastic bag to preserve soil moisture. Seedlings will develop within a few weeks. Remove the plastic bag and water when the compost becomes dry, but spray the surface with water regularly, to keep it moist. Locality: Tulbagh. Harvest: December 2023
