Blumenbachia hieronymi

Blumenbachia hieronymi

Family loasaceae
Life cycle
Flowers white
From seed germinate at room temperature
detailed seed-starting info below

Hairy leaves, flowers with five white petals and a red/yellow central structure. Curiously twisted fruits. One of the common names for this plant appears to be "sting lily", but I haven't noticed a stinging quality yet to my seedlings – nothing like their cousins B. insignis, anyway. Seedlings grow fairly quickly – the ones in the photo at right are a couple weeks old.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
