Tylecodon schaeferianus


Tylecodon schaeferianus. It is a branched perennial succulent, often forming tufted mounds with very short gnarled, interwoven stems (rarely extensively branched) with light colored, fissured bark and small egg-shaped green leaves. The plant has a branched underground tuberous rootstock (caudex) to 10 cm in diameter and 7 cm tall which qualifies it to be a caudiciform. It has lavender to pink flowers in winter. Sowing: Sow the seed in a seed box. DO NOT cover the seeds. Simply sow the seeds in a coarse sand topping, with a well-drained substrate underneath. Water with a fine mister or a fogger once a week during winter and once a month in summer. The seeds will germinate readily during the cooler period of the year. Locality: Luderitz. Harvest: March 2024
