The Ophthalmophyllum friedrichiae species has been famous since ancient times, and the bright coppery red eye was noticeable. The bulging roof has large windows. It is necessary to keep the breeding environment ventilated in the middle of summer.
Ophthalmophyllum Friedrichiae was mainly found in the Dagaqualand region of Namibia.
Ophthalmophyllum Friedrichiae should be put in cool, dry and sunny environments, drought resistant, water wet and sultry high temperatures. ophthalmophyllum friedrichiae is suitable for loose air permeability, good drainage and not too much fertilizer in the soil growth. The cultivated soil can be mixed with 2 parts of leaf rot, 2 parts of coarse sand, 1 part of frogstone or perlite and 0.5 part of slag. And plant them in deeper pots. Planting ophthalmophyllum Friedrichiae should be in the bottom of the basin, put some gravel, tile and other things, with drainage, and then put on the wall to raise soil. Planting should not be too deep. The surface of the basin soil can put small pebbles, in order to improve the ornamental value. May ~ August is the dormant period of the Ophthalmophyllum Friedrichiae, and the plant can be put in a ventilated and cool place for maintenance, appropriate shading, to prevent the scorching sun exposure. Strictly control watering, or even completely cut off water, but not the rain. After the weather turns cool in September, water appropriately. Keep the basin soil half dry. In Winter, the temperature requires to be more than 12℃, making Ophthalmophyllum friedrichiae grow normally. If we controlled watering, Ophthalmophyllum friedrichiae entered into dormanence and was able to tolerate 5°C low temperature. Gradually reduced watering in late March. Give plenty of light in all seasons except summer. Cultivation generally does not require additional fertilization. The "window" at the top of the Ophthalmophyllum friedrichiae was thin, so we tried not to hurt it, or it would cause scarring and affect the watching. Generally 2-3 years to turn the pot.
The propagation of Ophthalmophyllum friedrichiae can be sown, the seeds can be picked and sown at the same time, and seedling cultivation should be careful. For many years of growth of the colony of plants can also be divided into plant propagation. The newly planted seeds should be put out to dry for a few days before planting or rubbed the ashes on the wounds to prevent them from rotting. The newly planted seeds could easily survive without pouring too much water and keeping a little moisture.
The Ophthalmophyllum friedrichiae plants are small and exquisite, and the flowers are pure and elegant, which are the treasures of small succulent plants, but it is difficult to grow them. Botanic garden or succulent enthusiasts may collect as a variety to show their level of cultivation and the variety richness of the collection.
