Haworthia comptoniana (1 seed)


10 in stock

Haworthia comptoniana (price per 1 seed) (Asphodelaceae). This plant can reach more than 10cm in cultivation. The fleshy triangular leaves are arranged in a star-shaped rosette. Leaves are a deep emerald green with white veins, reddish margins and an intricate lacework of lighter green. Each leaf has a large “window” at the tip. 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: October 2023
