Searsia pallens (Rhus pallens) (100 seeds)


Out of stock

Searsia pallens. It is a much branched, many-stemmed shrub of 3 m in height (SA Tree List No. 395). The leaves are oblanceolate to narrowly obovate. The lateral leaflets are just a little smaller than the terminal one. The leaves are hairless and wavy; the new ones are shiny and resinous. The veins are dark, more visible above than below. Sowing : The seeds are cleaned by rubbing off the outer parts. Sow in a medium made up of one part mountain gravel, one part compost/leaf mould, and one part red soil. Mix well until you have a very well-drained, loose mixture. No artificial fertilizers should be added. Seed trays must have good drainage. Scatter the seeds lightly over the prepared, damp sowing mixture. Firm them down lightly. Cover with coarse sand. Place the seed tray in a cool, shady, well-ventilated house. The sun should not shine on the seed tray in the germinating stage. Locality: Somerset East. Harvest: September 2022
