Galaxia

Galaxia are bulbous plants native of South Africa. Most species make short and broad iris like leaves with prominent veines and showy bright colored flowes in shades of yellow on rose-lilac. All species are easily grown in any rich, well drained soil in full sun throughout the year. During dormancy keep plants rather dry and in winter at a minimum of some 10°C with watering reduced to a minimum. Excellent in a frostfree greenhouse or wintergarden, for their small to medium tall size they can be grown in rather small pots on window sills as well.
Sow the small seeds on top of any well drained substrate and cover them slightly with sand. Keep pots in full sun at some 20°C throughout the year and soil always slighly moist from beneath. A temperature drop at night down to some 10°C to 15°C will siginificantly enhance germination in several species.
