Prince Albert Vygie - 20 seeds
Bijlia dilatata (Bijlia cana), commonly known as the Prince Albert vygie, is a dwarf mesemb, a leaf succulent growing only a few branches at ground level. Sparse rosettes are formed by the leaf pairs that are decussate, i.e. growing opposite each other, succeeding the previous pair in perpendicular position.
HOW TO GROW?
Bijlia is easy to grow. These plants grow on winter rain and were heading for summer dormancy. Requires little water otherwise its epidermis breaks (resulting in unsightly scars). Water minimally in summer, only when the plant starts shrivelling but will generally grow even in summer if given water. Requires good drainage. Keep cool and shaded in summer, need full sun or light shade. Hardy to -2°C
