Product description

This species grows in the southwest of the cape of South Africa and produces beautiful dark red flowers, which contain a lot of hairs in the middle of the flower. The hairs in the flower and an unpleasant smell imitate a dead animal, this way the flowers attract insects that will pollinate the flower. The flowers will be produced regularly and usually grow to around 10-12 cm. The plant will grow well indoors and do well in a sunny spot on the windowsill.

Sowing description: Sow the seeds in a mixture of sand and sowing soil (1:1) and cover them with only a slim layer of soil. Keep the soil constantly moist (not wet). During germination place the seeds in a light spot without direct sunlight and keep at a temperature of 30 degrees Celsius (near heater).

Van de vijf zaden kiemden er vier. Zaailingen zijn goed doorgegroeid, nu een paar mooie kleine plantjes staan.


Joop

De eerste keer de zaden in een mengsel van zand en zaai- en stekgrond gezaaid, in een bamibakje met deksel, op kamertemperatuur. Helaas niks opgekomen. De tweede keer de 5 zaden alleen in zaai- en stekgrond gezaaid, in een bamibakje met deksel, op kamertemperatuur. Binnen 1 week alle 5 de plantjes op!
