A really lovely Achimenes with flowers that are pinkish-red. For continuous flowering we suggest planting at least 5 tubers in a 13 cm pot in good potting compost. Keep them moist in a light warm area, but not in direct sunlight. Best suited for growing indoors although in a very sheltered spot they could be grown outdoors but not recommended with the UK weather patterns. Plant in odd numbers and we suggest a minimum of 5 tubers per pot. Use an indoor potting compost with charcoal as this will preventing greening on the compost surface.
Plant tubers 1.5cms deep and 2.5cms apart in a well drained soil. Keep pots indoors in a warm bright spot.
Achimenes are best grown indoors and watered with tepid water.
Aspect: Indoors on a windowsill or similar.
Soil type: Good indoor soil compost.
