|CHECK Dormancy Table to SEE WHAT'S GROWING & WHAT'S DORMANT
We remove some of the soil when we ship. There are usually no issues with a plant out of soil or kept dry for a week or more. When you receive your plants, put them into a pot with moist soil. Give the roots opportunity to reachdown for water. Please check to see if your plants should be watered at the time of year you purchase. Some don't get a lot of water in winter and some not a lot of water in summer. How often you water depends on how quickly your soil dries out. Most important, don't overwater. Water well and allow your plants to dry out. The photos on our website represent what plants look like when growing. We are not selling the plant in the photo. Whether your plant has flowers depends on whether it is flowering at that time. A pot may be one large plant or more than one plant. Plants grow at a different pace and different sizes so if you order 2 plants coming out of the same size pot, they may not be the same size.
|The Calibanus hookeri can tolerate light shade to full sun. Itís origin is North central Mexico. Calibanus leaves can grow up to 3 feet long. Water moderately when growing but little water the rest of the time once it is established. Propagate by seeds. The Calibanus hookeri has a caudex that can reach over 3 feet in diameter. The long, bluish leaves grow on the caudex. The genus is named for Shakespeare's monster, Caliban. It contains only this species but is closely related to the genus Nolina. As many names with an 'ri' termination, the species epithet is also spelled 'hookerii'.|
