Description

Ornithogalum dubium is an unusual flowering houseplant with sizzling orange flowers in winter and spring just when you need a lift. It looks fabulous on its own, or as part of a houseplant collection where its showy orange blooms will shine out beautifully against background foliage plants. From a low rosette of lance-shaped leaves emerge one or two stalks bearing racemes of star-shaped orange to yellow flowers over several weeks. Height and spread: 30cm (12in).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Grow in bright but indirect light, well away from the scorch of direct sun. Choose a warm room with a constant temperature between 12° - 24°C (54° - 75°F). Provide good air circulation but position the plant away from central heating and draughty doorways.
More Info

After flowering the foliage will yellow and begin to die. Once it has completely died off, prune it back to an inch above the soil line and prepare the bulb for dormancy. Place the bulbs in a dry, dark location at a temperature of around 10°C (50°F). When the foliage starts to re-emerge in spring, begin to fertilise and gradually increase watering, always allowing the top third of the plant to dry out between waterings.

Plants can be propagated by removing bulb offsets at the start of spring and planting them into small pots of cactus compost.
