Erepsia inclaudens (100 seeds)


Out of stock

Erepsia inclaudens. Densely branched shrublet with rather weak red stems up to 40cm. Leaves glossy with translucent-dots, usually with red tips, 6-8mm in diam.; flowers in small clusters, deep mauve, held above the leaves; petals are spoon-shaped; fruits 5-locular, 8-10mm in diam. 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: Rooi Els. Harvest: April 2023
