Albuca flaccida (100 seeds)


Out of stock

Albuca flaccidum (Hyacinthaceae) It is a bulbous perennial growing flowering stems to heights varying between 40 cm and 1 m. The three to five fleshy channelled leaves are grey-green, long, tapering to their tips and clasping the stem at the base. The species is winter growing, summer dormant. 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: Gouda. Harvest: October 2022
