Haemathus deformis is an amazing and unusual Amaryllis relative from Southern Africa. One of the easiest and most unusual Haemanthus species to care for, the bulb grows pairs of fleshy, hairy leaves that lay flat against the growing medium. The leaves form to whatever they encounter, covering the shapes of the rocks and twigs lying around them. When Haemanthus deformis blooms, a cluster of whitish flowers with bright yellow anthers grow from the center of the plant.
• Light: Bright, indirect light. Some direct light okay, but this plant is not suitable for full sun.
• Water: This plant likes even moisture, with less water in the winter months.
• Considerations: Use a well-draining cactus/succulent soil, and select a planter with drainage. Plants like to be pot bound and repotted infrequently. Older leaves slowly die over a period of months and are replaced with new leaves as the plant grows and matures.
