Product description

This is a rare white variety of the common red parrot beak. The flowers lookalike and also resemble to the beak of the New Zealand parrot, the kaka. It’s a beautiful brush which can be kept as a container plant in a sunny spot. Protect the plant against frost. In the wild, this variety is probably extinct. Luckily, cultivated plants keep this species alive. It’s stunningly beautiful to combine this white variety, together with the common red parrot beak. Possibly even together in a large container or tub. 

Sowing description: Let the seeds soak for one minute in boiling water; afterwards let them cool off in cold water. Wrap seeds in a moisty sheet of paper towel and let them rest for 24 hours. Keep them constantly moist. After a day, the seeds should have been doubled in size. If that’s the case, the seed wall should be broken. Repeat the process for seeds that are not swollen.

Sow swollen seeds in sowing mix. Cover with plastic wrap or glass, keep the soil constantly moist and let them germinate in a warm spot at home. Germination can occur after a couple of weeks or months.

Inderdaad, de methode met kokend water leek goed te werken. Ongeveer de helft van de zaden zwol op en ontkiemde na ongeveer een week. De plantjes groeiden echter niet, en na ongeveer drie weken gingen ze vrij plotseling allemaal de pijp uit. Jammer..... Wat had ik hiertegen kunnen doen?

Volgens bovenstaande methode (tot 4x herhaald) 100% ontkieming binnen een week! Belangrijk om direct na ontkieming in potgrond in het licht te zetten bij 15-25 graden anders blijft de plant te teer (potten bij max. 1cm).
