There are 6 erect leaves that stands in a fan and is slightly twisted at the ends. The bright white to light pink flowers is produced on a long slender stem and is usually hanging downwards. Sowing: Sow seeds in deep seed trays as soon as possible after harvesting in a very well-drained, sandy medium to which some fine compost is added. Press lightly into the soil, so that the top of the seed remains visible. Water well once and then again only after the first leaves appear. After that, water well once every two to three weeks. When the leaves begin to yellow, withhold watering altogether. Judicious watering starts again when the leaves reappear after the dormant period. Locality: Bulletrap. Harvest: April 2024
