Ibicella lutea (Yellow Devil's Claw)

Ibicella lutea (Yellow Devil's Claw)

40cm, Yellow Devil's Claw (syn. Proboscidea lutea) is an annual species from the southern USA. It is considered a pre-carnivorous plant which passively catches small insects with sticky glue on stems and leaves. It has showy orange-yellow flowers, followed by fruits containing woody seed capsules with a recurved pointed tip. Sow in mid spring in pots and keep pots outside in a protected and sunny spot. Seeds of this species are slow in germination and may take several months. A sharp drop from daytime temperature (some 25°C) to nightime temperature (some 10°C) will significantly shorten the germination process. Transplant in early summer to the final spot.
