Wintergrowing africans

Recommended Posts

I have D. cistiflora, and i wanted to know what is the best enviroment to make it flower. I Live in belgium, so in the greenhouse in winter is only 8 hours of light. i can put a lamp on them in the greenhouse, where it is never below 10°C. Can also put them inside the house under T5 lights where it is 20-25 °C. What is the best.number of light hours and temperature?

Hi David,

 

I suggest the cool conditions in the green house. My plants get about 10 h photoperiod.

 

Best regards

Dieter

D. cistiflora grows best with night temps between 1 and 8°C (day may be betwen 15-25°C). If you have no direct sun you'll need artificial light, however, 10 hours light should be sufficient.
