Rabiea albinota (100 seeds)


123 in stock

Rabiea albinota. It  is a mat-forming succulent, about 80 mm tall and up to 200 mm in diameter, with leaves that broaden from the base to the middle, then taper to a pointed apex (mucronate). The leaf is scimitar-shaped (acinaciform), with a distinct keel. The epidermal layer has numerous tuberculate, prominent, white to dark purple spots, often white-margined. Flowers appear daisy-like, yellow, solitary, opening in the afternoon, 35–45 mm in diameter; stamens are yellow. Sowing : The small seeds can be sown in pots of fine, well-drained sand, any time during the summer months when temperatures are warm. Cover the seeds with a very fine layer of grit and water from below with a fungicide to prevent damping off. For the first 3-4 days cover the pots with a sheet of glass/clear Perspex to keep the humidity levels high. Remove the glass and replace it with light shade cloth and mist once or twice a day for the next two weeks after which most seeds should have germinated. From then on misting can be reduced to every second and then every third day as the little plants grow. Locality: Ex Hort. Harvest: October 2023
