Lachenalia arbuthnotiae


Lachenalia arbuthnotiae. It is a Lachenalia with showy yellow flowers that turn a dull red as they age. The spike is quite dense and generally longer than many, the flowers are upwards of horizontal with a pedicel that is so short the flowers almost clasp the rachis. Sowing: Seed is best sown in autumn in deep seed trays or pots in a sterilized medium of equal parts fine compost or loam, and river sand. Sow the seed thinly to prevent overcrowding and fungal infection, and to allow sufficient room for each seedling’s bulb to develop. Cover with a thin layer of sand, and keep moist and shaded. Germination should occur within five weeks. Locality: Somerset West. Harvest: October 2023
