Lewisia cotyledon

10th June 2006

I do really badly with Lewisia. They grow so fat and lush that I always overestimate how much water they need, and they suffer as a consequence. One day I will get the hint, and make sure that they only ever stand with the succulents, with a big sign saying "Stay your hand, you big drip". I probably wouldn't get the hint even then, but it's a start.

A few years later and a few more dead Lewisia down the line. I'm having another go. I have a nice dry Agave house and some cheerful flowers in spring would be a good thing. I have no idea what the flowers on this one will be like. It didn't seem all that important at the time, I have to get there first!
