Tylecodon pygmaea (100 seeds)


Out of stock

Tylecodon pygmaea (Crassulaceae) It is a small bonsai like succulent with short, often branched tubers (caudex) producing one, rarely few smooth erect branches 10 – 20 cm long with grey bark often with dark grey striations, with a subterranean tuberous base. 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: Bitterfontein. Harvest: August 2021
