- Fascinating & easy from seed.
- Native to the Americas, these unusual spikey plants add continual year round charm and interest to your home. 'Flowers of the Desert' is a blend of varieties providing different shapes and sizes.
Sow indoors at any time. A warm kitchen windowsill is all you need for starting these seeds. Sow, 0.5cm (¼”) deep, in trays of sandy compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 20-25°C (68-77°F) is ideal. Keep moist. Germination may be slow and erratic, from two weeks to two months. Transplant seedlings individually to 5cm (2") pots of well-drained compost, when large enough to handle, or, if preferred, to mixed bowls for more impact. Grow on in cooler, but not cold conditions. When mature, allow plants to dry out before watering. Do not water at all between October and March.
