Lachenalia carnosa


Lachenalia carnosa. (Flesh Viooltjie) A South African bulbous species that produces, procumbent broad oval-shaped lightly spotted leaves with delicate bell shaped white flowers with magenta tips. Flowers in late winter to early spring. 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: Goegap. Harvest: September 2023
