Item details

Bowiea is a bulbous genus of perennial, succulent plants which thrive in dry and desert regions of South Africa and America.
The plants have many overlapping scales, which form a tight, pale green, spherical bulb that grows to 8 in (20 cm) above the soil, sending up a twining fresh-green branched stem with few linear deciduous leaves.
Dormant in winter, when the outer scales and many of the scale tips dry to a paper-like state, the plants burst to growth in late spring or summer, producing one or more very fast-growing stems that needs to be supported by a trellis or stake.
The stems are covered with many leafless side-branches that may fall off.
The small greenish-white flowers appear in spring.
The genus is named after the nineteenth-century British plant collector at Kew, James Bowie.
This is one of the most interesting and easiest succulents to grow.

MISSING 2 SEEDS - you know what is sad, I got three seeds two of which sprouted fine, whatever, maybe it was your typo. It is not worth the trouble sending it back besides maybe the one that didn't sprout ate the other two that were missing from the package. I am happy of the two that are kinda growing. Can't wait to see what they will look like when they are more mature, if they survive that long.
