Dietes (Fairy Iris)

Fairy Iris are rhizomatous subtropical perennials from South Africa, Australia and Lord Howe islands with iris-like leaves and most ornamental iris-like flowers. All species are easily grown in any rich, well drained soil in full sun to partial throughout the year at a minimum of some 10°C with watering reduced to a minimum in winter months.
Sow seeds in any rich, well drained substrate. Keep pots in a sunny spot 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. The germination process will take several months, seeds from Dietes robinsoniana may stay dormant for one entire year before they will start to germinate.
20 seeds per package, unless stated differently.
