Bijlia dilatata (100 seeds)


10 in stock

Bijlia dilatata. It is an almost stemless, perennial, mat forming succulent up to 12 cm and more in diameter, consisting of closely growing rosettes of remarkable, club-like, unevenly shaped leaves. The keeled end is drawn forwards over tip to form a ‘chin’. Flowers are bright yellow, and born on short stalks in winter. Sowing: The small seeds can be sown in pots of fine, well-drained sand, any time during the summer months when temperatures are warm. Cover the seeds with a very fine layer of grit and water from below with a fungicide to prevent damping off. For the first 3-4 days cover the pots with a sheet of glass/clear Perspex to keep the humidity levels high. Remove the glass and replace it with light shade cloth and mist once or twice a day for the next two weeks after which most seeds should have germinated. From then on misting can be reduced to every second and then every third day as the little plants grow. Locality: Ex Hort. Harvest: October 2023
