Sowing regia

8 posts in this topic

Hi guys! When is best time for sowing regia? Here in north-centre Italy we have 4-9 degrees in the night and 18-20 during the day, is still too cool? I must admit of being a little bit (read really :D) impatient, but i don't want make any mistake. Thank you all!

Now is a good time to sow a lot of the South African species as they like cool nights and warm days.

Also a good time to sow Roridula and Drosophyllum.

Don't be too impatient with D. regia, as it is a slow plant, remaining small for a couple of years before increasing its growth rate, seemingly once it starts catching more prey.

Ok! Just one more question, due to the fact that this plant hate to be repotted, for what i know, is bettere to share the seedes in a couple of (big) pots at least? 

Many thanks Nigel!!!

That's okay! I've never found them difficult to transplant or repot. I'd sow them together in a tray or pot, depending on how many seeds you have, and prick them out when they're large enough to handle.

These guys were all from seed. I've posted pictures of The Mamma under the 'Plants in Cultivation' tab.
