Hardy but needs well-drained soil in full sun. The flower heads are around 2ft tall and may need support. Berkheyas are tap rooted plants but clumps can readily be divided in the spring. They can however be a bit slow to get going again.
Spread some seeds on the peat pot and cover thinly with the sowing substrate (about 2 mm).
Then put the plastic pot in a zip-lock bag - with a pot size of 6 cm we recommend a zip-lock bag of size 120 x 170 mm. Put enough tap water in the zip-lock bag with a few drops of universal fertilizer so that a few millimeters of water remain after the substrate has been absorbed.
Location: on the windowsill or in a miniature greenhouse partially shaded, during the day the temperatures should be around 24 - 28 C, at night slightly lower at 20 - 24 C.
price is for 5 seeds
