Othonna retrofracta (100 seeds)


Out of stock

Othonna retrofracta (Asteraceae) This deciduous caudiciform is up to 0.3m tall with slender stems arising from a swollen flask-shaped caudex with peeling bark in older specimens. It has numerous thin and twiggy light brown branches with a purple flush when young. Sowing : Use a well-drained sandy loam soil mix and cover the seed lightly with sieved coarse river sand to hold them in place. Othonna seeds germinate quite easily, so no special treatment of the seed is needed, and they do well in cultivation. Keep the seed moist and they will germinate after two weeks. Locality : Oudtshoorn. Harvest : September 2023
