Huernia keniensis (10 seeds)


1 in stock

Huernia keniensis (price per 10 seeds) It is a leafless, glabrous, clump-forming succulent perennial. The five-angled stems are usually prominently sharp-toothed, with a soft tip, grey green mottled purple in full sun. Each stem can reach over 10-15cm in height. It produces a starfish-shaped flower with a carrion smell that has burgundy coloring. It is ideal in pots and planters. Sowing: Sow in individual containers, placing each seed about 5mm below soil level. Do not water from above because of the risk of fungal diseases, but soak the pots by partially immersing them in water and then enclose them in tightly sealed plastic bags. Place in a lightly shaded position at a temperature around 22 – 25°c and germination should take place within a few days. Keep the plant out of direct light for at least the first 2 – 3 months. Locality: Ex Hort. Harvest: December 2023
