Othonna wrinkleana


Othonna wrinkleana. It  is a tiny, compact, glabrous, succulent, that may branch into as many as 20 or more short, stumpy heads, all scarcely above soil level, with a flattened, tuber-like stem, or caudex, below ground. After spring rain, small bright leaves are produced which die away in summer when their small yellow, daisy-like flowers are formed. In summer and autumn it shows only the bare fleshy stems. 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: Knersvlakte. Harvest: August 2022
