100 in stock

Haworthiopsis viscosa(Asphodelaceae) (price per 5 seeds) It is an evergreen, succulent perennial plant with elongated rosettes up to 15 cm tall. The leaves are broadly triangular, brownish-green to olive-green in color and up to 4 cm long. The flowers are white with grey to green veins and are borne on a up to 30 cm tall inflorescence. 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: Ladysmith. Harvest: April 2023
