Conanthera (Widow Lily)

Widow Lilies is a small genus within the Tecophilacea family and consists of some three to four species of bulbous plants native of Chile (South America). They have showy blue, purple or white and purple flowers on graceful stems above grass like leaves. All are easily grown in any rich, well drained soil in a sunny spot 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 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 slightly moist from beneath. A temperature drop at night down to some 10°C to 15°C will significantly enhance germination in several species.
20 seeds per package.
