Sowing Months Flowering Months

Plants can be stood outside during the summer, but will need the winter protection of a conservatory or greenhouse. Feed monthly with balanced liquid fertiliser during spring and summer, water sparingly during winter. Plants can take many years to flower from seed.

Sow any time of year. Remove the orange tuft and soak for up to 24 hours. Press seeds into moist sand and seal inside a plastic bag. Place in the dark at 21-24C (70-75F). Germination can take 1-6 months.

When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings into 7.5cm (3 inch)pots or trays. When well grown, pot on as necessary however always keep plants slightly pot-bound as this encourages flowering. Grow in soil-based potting mix and place in good, natural light.
