Elegia cuspidata (100 seeds)

R30.00

8 in stock

Elegia cuspidata. Restionaceae. It has sturdy upright stems and grows 0.5-1.1 m tall. Plants stay neatly clumped as they do not have a spreading rhizome and culms are unbranched. Chestnut brown sheaths enclose each node and as the culm grows the sheaths splay outwards and drop off. Sowing: Before sowing, the seed should be treated with smoke or soaked in a smoke-water solution. The seed should be sown during early autumn, when the nights are cool, between 10°C and 15°C, and the days are still warm, between 20°C and 30°C. After about three weeks the seed germinates and after another six to nine weeks can be pricked out. Locality: George. Harvest: February 2024
