Astroloba corrugata (100 seeds)


Out of stock

Astroloba corrugata. It is immediately recognisable by its stout (often recurved) leaves which are covered in tiny, fine, asperous tubercles. Like all Astrolobas, its stems branch & offset from the base, forming columns that are densely covered in sharp, succulent leaves. Sowing : Sow the seeds during the cool, early summer months of the year in a light, sandy, loam mixture in a seed tray, 4 mm below the soil surface. If sown too deep, they will be smothered and probably not germinate. Ensure there is adequate drainage. A light mixture constitutes materials such as pumice, gravel, perlite and fine-textured humus. On top of this mixture, sprinkle a thin layer of coarse sand. Keep the area weed free and water with a fine mist spray every second day. Ensure the seed trays are in a sunny position. Locality: Ladysmith. Harvest: April 2023
