50Kanna; KougoedAizoaceaeScletium tortuosum (dg fo pf wp)Culture is much the same as for Cacti -- surface sow on gritty soil, keeping warm and damp and in the light until germination. Typical Cactus mix is 50% white pumice, 25% coarse, sharp sand, and 25% organic matter such as coir or compost. Many growers use gallon pots and stretch plastic over the top of the pot to create a mini-greenhouse effect. When seedlings emerge, prop them up with bits of pumice to help them stay positioned and root in. Do not dislodge when watering. Slowly acclimatize plants to full sun and drier soil.Plants prefer full sun, with moisture and fertility in summer and kept dry in winter.full sunwell drained20 eachPerennial succulent native to S. Africa, hardy to about 20 degrees F. Rare.
