Boasting huge white flowers, up to 3"/8cm across, this strange-looking plant is extremely easy to grow, and is an excellent candidate for outdoor growing in colder climates, but will prefer protection from too much wet. In its native home in Chile it grows at extreme altitude, well above the timber line, where it prefers sunny spots and well-drained soil.
Seeds can be sown at any time but are best sown in winter or early spring to benefit from a cold spell in the wet compost to break their dormancy. We advise covering seeds very thinly with sand or fine grit to about the depth of the seed size. If the seeds do not come up within 6 to 12 weeks the damp seed tray can be given cold treatment in a fridge for about four weeks. They may still take very many months to appear, so please never discard the pot or tray.
