Lachenalia hirta


Lachenalia hirta. (Hyacinthaceae) Native to South Africa in the Namaqualand to Western Cape regions where it grows in sandy soils. Plants have a single leaf with bristles in the margin. 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: Malmesbury. Harvest: September 2023
