Crossyne

There are 2 species of Crossyne, popular among growers for their broad leaves fringed with brown hair-like bristles. They are winter growing species with flowers similar to that of Boophone with many flowers forming a ball shape. They prefer full sun and do best in large pots with a well-drained sandy medium. They need occasional heavy drenching (once every 10 days) during their winter growing cycle and keep dry in the summer dormant period.
