General Information

Blooming Time: In winter in the greenhouse, it blooms with very small, greenish-white flowers.
Culture: Ledebouria socialis need full sun to partial shade with a well-drained soil mix. We use a soil mix consisting of 1 part peat moss to 1 part loam to 2 parts sand or perlite. The plants are allowed to dry thoroughly in between waterings. Plants are fertilized on a monthly basis with a balanced fertilizer diluted to ½ the strength recommended on the label. They are very vigorous growers and should be repotted often.
Propagation: Ledebouria socialis are propagated by division at any time of the year.
