Statice Suworowii

Sale price$9.00
LIMONIUM SUWOROWII

Very unique upright pink spired statice! Dries impeccably well!

Suworowii absolutely hate wet feet, they are very sensitive to overwatering when germinating so never leave them in standing water, and take care to leave them to dry (but not dry out, fully dry type 'dry') before waterings. Plant in very free draining soil. Suworowii also don't particularly like lingering in seed trays and always seem to look very sad, but don't despair, so long as you plant them out and don't let them fully dry out, they will bounce back like true magic!

Also known as Pink Pokers + Rat Tail Statice.

APPROX 80 SEEDS

Please note, we have a minimum plant order of 5 plants (you can mix & match any plants to meet the minimum).

A Note on Hardening Off

All our plants are grown as we would grow & plant ourselves, which means we typically do not harden off (acclimatise) any of our smaller plants before planting.

Instead, after planting, we always cover all our plants with some sort of frost/mikroclima type cloth over wire low hoops. We leave this cover on till the plants are too big for the cover (usually a couple months later). We have found this extra layer of prolonged cover does away with any need to faff around hardening off plants, and the difference between any plants under these low hoops and those with zero transitionary cover is astonishing!

Prior to planting we also always give our plants a very good soak in water with a swig of seaweed solution and innoculate our plants with beneficial microorganisms. This helps alleviate stress, and start all our plants off with the best possible beginnings.

If however you don't / can't plant under some similar sort of cover, then we do definitely recommend you give your plants 5–14 days to slowly acclimatise to your less protected environment before planting out. We are reasonably mild compared to more southern growers, so easing the plants into colder climates is definitely advised.

Cloth: Polynet / Redpath
Hoops: 4mm Fencing Wire (which we cut up to fit our beds, with bolt cutters as fencing pliers are waaay too hard on our hands!)
