Drosanthemum tuberculiferum (100 seeds)


5 in stock

Drosanthemum tuberculiferum. The cylindrical succulent leaves grow in oblique finger-like pairs with irregular slight curvature. They are grey-green to pale yellow-green. The flowers are borne in spring on long slender stalks just above the leaves; blooms are prolific after rain. The flowers are small with delicate, shiny petals. 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: Barrydale. Harvest: April 2023
