Albuca viscosa

R25.00R34.00

Albuca viscosa

Family: Hyacinthaceae

Common names: Sticky Tamarak

It is a bulb bearing a few to many spiralling leaves. The leaves are covered in glandular hairs that secrete a viscous substance making them sticky.

Sowing instructions: 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: Middelpos. Harvest: February 2024
