Drosanthemum hallii (100 seeds)


1 in stock

Drosanthemum hallii. It is a low-growing succulent shrub with an oval shape and a fibrous root system that allows it to take up water quickly. The branches can grow up to 270 mm long with 10-45 mm long internodes. Papillae occur on the reddish-brown bark on the younger stems as white distant dots in the dry state, which later becomes hairy or scaly as the plant grows older. It has bright yellow solitary flowers with outer petals 18 mm long and inner petals 8 mm long. 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: Brandvlei. Harvest: April 2023
