Ceratotheca ( the south african foxglove )
« on: August 25, 2020, 01:39:32 PM »
It is currently blooming very nicely in our garden :
Ceratotheca triloba ( my first seeds of this plants I have received from a nice member here )
The plants are now almost 1.80 m high and can cope with the heat and drought very well

Here is some information:

I sown the plants in early March
This last picture is from April 23rd

Have fun
Hans

Very nice Hans.  Unfortunately my seedlings resented being transplanted.  Did you sow them individually in that modular tray?

Hi Ashley ,

I have it sown in my normal sowing pots ( 9 x 9 )
Later I have it transplanted in that tray on the picture ....
When they was big enough I made it in individual pot ( 9 x )
...and than in 11 x 11 pots ...
and than outside !
