Strong, erect stems carry palest lime-green waxy bells, earlier than Galtonia candicans, above handsome, broad, grey-green, strap-shaped leaves. This is an ideal plant for any freely drained soil in full sun.
Sow seeds at any time covering them with compost or grit 5mm deep, keeping the seed pot in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination so be very patient as many species will only germinate in the spring after chilling or freezing in the moist seed tray in the winter. Grow on individual seedlings in small pots until of sufficient size to be potted on or planted out into the open ground.
