Lachenalia orchioides


Lachenalia orchioides (Hyacinthaceae) It is a winter growing bulb in the Western Cape region of South Africa. It makes 2 strap like leaves which is sometimes covered with blotches. The flowers have a pale blue base and shades to a typically greenish-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: Somerset-West. Harvest: November 2023
