Haemanthus: Identification, plant Growth and reproduction

Learn about the plant

Haemanthus is a genus of 21 species of bulbous perennials, many of them evergreen, from grassy, steep hillsides in South Africa. A stout stalk bears the giant blossom-go higher than the few sizeable foliages with the foundation. The light is planted with all the suggestions above the compost. Haemanthus katharinae is the most preferred time tested. The red flowers happen in summer – offsets usually are not produced. The floral-go of H. albiflos is white-colored, and much small – offsets are created.

Plant growth conditions

Medium heat – lowest 50 F in winter. Well-lit up but away from sunlight.

Keep garden compost damp always from springtime to the autumn months – normal water moderately in the winter months. Sponge leaves from time to time.


Plant reproduction

Remove offsets from mature plant life in the spring season or summer time. Sow seed at 61-64 F (16-18 C) when ripe.
