Datasheet

Cultivation: Because of the tap root they are very rot prone, so use highly gritty compost with much drainage and water regularly in summer, but do not overwater, it prefer a completely dry place during winter.  An unheated greenhouse would be perfect. It can survive low temperatures (appr. -7°C). Full sun to light shade.

Propagation:
Seed or  cuttings.
