The sizeable rosette of this immensely striking, tough plant is surprisingly hardy. When it reaches maturity it sprouts a rapidly growing spire. This is quickly covered with numerous branches bearing absolutely countless beautiful palest lemon flowers, which in turn produce many plum-sizes seed capsules. However, normally only a few ripen into solid seed pods, the remainder falling off. But do not despair, each place that lost a flower, soon sprouts a sizeable baby plant! These occur in some number, and they progressively fall off into winter to instantly become new plants!! From Mexico, and very rarely found in the UK, these are superb in poor or even impoverished soil! Best in a well drained sheltered spot or even a large pot in a warm place.

Sowing Advice

For best results, sow seeds in good light at any time onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. We recommend germinating at 15 to 20 degrees C. Seeds should ideally germinate in between 2 and 6 weeks although they make take considerably longer. Pot on seedlings before finally planting out into a container or a well-drained spot.
