Stapelia gettleffei (100 seeds)


Out of stock

Stapelia gettleffei (Asclepiadaceae) It is a succulent plant and thrives in well-drained soil with water only when the soil feels dry up to the first knuckle of your index finger. Provide partial sun or filtered light. Since it is a carrion plant, when blooming it smells like rotting meat or a dead animal to attract flies for pollination. Sowing : It is easily propagated from ripe seeds, sown in a normal nursery tray, using a well-drained seed-sowing compost and silica sand mixture (silica sand improves drainage) kept moist and at a temperature of approximately 22?C. The seeds need some degree of humidity for successful germination. One can generally expect seeds to germinate within 3?4 weeks (one month). Locality : Louis Trichardt. Date of harvest : October 2021
