BULBINE margarethae (5 s)

Author: Lisabel Irene Hall
Family: Asphodelaceae
Habitat: South Africa

This member of the Asphodelaceae family was described by Lisabel Irene Hall in 1984. It is found in the Cape Province of South Africa, growing in grit or other well drained soil with little water and lots of sun. The swollen root can grow up to three centimetres in diameter, the whole plant up to seven centimetres high. The flowers are pale green and yellow.

The genera name means 'bulbous'. The species is named after Mrs Margretha Wiese, the wife of Buys Wiese, owner of the farm Quaggaskop, South Africa, where the species was discovered. He told me, it former was supposed to be a variation of Bulbine mesembryanthemoides.

Exposure: bright and sunny Minimum 5°C (winter growth)
Soil: not too rich but mostly well drained.
Sow in autumn, in terrine covered with a plate of glass. Keep the substrate slightly moist and aerate regularly. Be careful the mushrooms appreciate these confined temperatures so it will be necessary to watch out for them not to grow. A seed treatment before sowing can be considered as well as once the seeding is done.
Keep cool with good lighting (add artificial light as needed)
Our seeds are freshly harvested and often tested, some species can have a long and difficult germination and even, sometimes, they can germinate after a year. A 100% germination rate is exceptional and is only valid for a few varieties
