Gasteria carinata var schweickertiana (10 seeds)


Out of stock

Gasteria carinata var schweickertiana (price per 10 seeds) The var. schweickerdtiana distinguish from the other varieties and forms for the pale, smooth (or very obscurely tuberculate) leaves which are distichous in young rosettes, becoming rosulate and decidedly twisted with 8-12 leaves. It is very similar if not the same as Gasteria carinata var. glabra. This variety is confined to the Eastern portion of the distribution area of the species. Sowing : Sow the seeds during the cool, early summer months of the year in a light, sandy, loam mixture in a seed tray, 4 mm below the soil surface. If sown too deep, they will be smothered and probably not germinate. Ensure there is adequate drainage. A light mixture constitutes materials such as pumice, gravel, perlite and fine-textured humus. On top of this mixture, sprinkle a thin layer of coarse sand. Keep the area weed free and water with a fine mist spray every second day. Ensure the seed trays are in a sunny position. Locality: Ex Hort. Harvest: January 2021
