Lachenalia bulbifera


Lachenalia bulbifera (Hyacinthaceae) One of the most stiking of all the Lachenalias. It is a variable species which may have one or two leaves which may be entirely green or marked with dark spots. The flowers can be bright red or orange, rarely yellow. 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: Hermanus. Harvest: December 2023
