Cyrtanthus epiphyticus



25th April 2015


A summer growing bulb that needs plenty of water when in growth but will tolerate drought when it is dormant. The specific epithet is slightly misleading. The original collection was found growing in moss lodged in a tree but it is typically a plant of rocky slopes.

My small plant has grown well enough to flower in a greenhouse that reaches quite high temperatures when the sun hits it which suggests that I need a warmer place for some of the other species.
