syn: Mesembryanthemum subulatoides seeds
Cephalophyllum subulatoide, a cluster forming succulent from South Africa. The leaves are 5 cm - 7 cm long. Large pink-purple flowers appear in spring and summer.
Sowing takes place in plastic pots. Either commercially available mineral-based cat litter (no clumping litter), perlite or pumice gravel (germ-free) is used as the substrate. Distribute the seeds evenly on the substrate. Cover larger seeds thinly with substrate, fine seeds can remain on the surface.
Then place the plastic pot in a ziplock bag - for a pot size of 6 cm, a 120 x 170 mm ziplock bag is recommended. Put enough tap water with a few drops of universal fertilizer into the ziplock bag so that a few mm of water remain after the substrate has been absorbed.
Location: on the window sill or in a mini greenhouse in partial shade, during the day the temperature should be around 23 - 28 C, at night a little lower at 20 - 22 C
Price is for 5 seeds
