Sowing instructions Schizobasis intricata - syn: Drimia intricata:
There is no pretreatment of the seeds required.
The sowing takes place in plastic pots. The substrate used is either commercial cat litter on a mineral basis (no lumping litter), perlite or pumice (germ-free). Distribute the seeds evenly on the substrate. Cover larger seeds sparingly with substrate, fine seeds may remain on the surface.
Then put the plastic pot in a ziplock bag - with a pot size of 6 cm we recommend a ziplock bag of size 120 x 170 mm. Put enough tap water in the ziplock bag with a few drops of universal fertilizer so that a few millimeters of water remain after the substrate has been absorbed. Then close the ziplock bag airtight - done!
Further watering is not required as moisture does not evaporate through the squeeze bag.
Location: partially shady on the windowsill or in a miniature greenhouse, during the day the temperatures should be around 23 - 28 C, at night a little lower at 20 - 22 C. The microclimate created creates ideal germination conditions.
