Greeting All,

A few months ago I purchased some spiloxene capensis and decided to hold
them over for winter planting. Well, they've starting to sprout and it turns
out...I haven't the slightest idea on how to grow them. I currently have a
few different pots of cyrtanthus that are starting to spike and was
wondering if they would grow in the same medium. The cyrtanthus are growing
in a gritty but rich mix of Pro-Mix potting soil 50%, granite grit 20%,
compost 10%, sand 10% and fine fir bark 10%. They seem pretty happy and was
wondering if the spiloxene would enjoy the same mix. Any advice from the
expert South African geophyte growers would be greatly appreciated.

Warm Regards,
