Albuca bracteata (Stellarioides longebracteata, Ornithogalum longibracteatum, Albuca longibracteatum) (100 seeds)


Out of stock

Albuca bracteata. Pregnant onion. It is a rather curious bulbous plant and looks very similar to an onion. The bulb is large, smooth, opalescent, pale apple-green, that sit on top of the medium and will reach up to 10 cm in diameter. When larger produce bulbils on their sides. Sowing: Fill a pot with a moist, gritty, loam-based compost. Gently firm down and level the surface. Scatter your seeds over the surface, taking care not to sow them too thickly. Gently sprinkle a thin layer of vermiculite or fine grit over the seeds, covering the whole surface of the compost. Leave the pot in a greenhouse or on a warm windowsill, covered with a clear plastic bag to preserve soil moisture. Seedlings will develop within a few weeks. Remove the plastic bag and water when the compost becomes dry, but spray the surface with water regularly, to keep it moist. Locality: George. Harvest: April 2023
