Albuca batteniana (100 seeds)


Out of stock

Albuca batteniana (Hyacinthaceae). Wild Coast Albuca. It is an evergreen bulb that grows above the soil with only the roots attached to the soil. It can reach a height of 0.6m. It flowers in late winter to spring and the flowers are white with a pale green keel. 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: East London. Harvest: August 2022
