Voodoo lily

Origin:
India

Minimum temperature:
-15 degrees Ceclius

Description:
This arum from India always proves to be a special appearance in the garden. Each year, the fully cold-hardy plant grows as a bulb from the ground and dies away later in the year. After several years, remarkable flowers will appear annually which add an extra dimension to the garden. They are pollinated by flies, which is why the flowers do not produce lovely nectar-like odours, but scents that are appealing to flies. These odours are only produced briefly, so they won’t irritate you when you cultivate the plant close to your terrace. When the plant has died away, you can dig up the tuber and store it during the winter in a cool and dry place.

Germination instructions:
Sow in sowing mix at room temperature. Protect seedlings against frost.

Sowing time:
All year round

Difficulty:
Easy

Ik had 4 knolletjes. Eentje is opgekomen en is een schattig plantje van 15 cm hoog, het lijkt al even niet meer te groeien. De andere knolletjes heb ik na enkele maanden opgegraven: 2 ervan zijn gesneuveld, vermoedelijk door te vochtig te zijn. Het laatste knolletje ziet er wel nog uit zoals ik het begraven had en zal dus hopelijk binnenkort in gang schieten.
