ADROMISCHUS SPHENOPHYLLUS C.A. Smith
Section: 4 Incisilobati

DISTRIBUTION
Common in the Eastern Cape.

CHARACTERS
A large species, with plain, elongated, light green leaves with a horny margin to the base, sometimes with a reddish edge, but never spotted. Sometimes with auriculate (ear-like) projections on leaf bases, like A. maculatus.

CULTIVATION
Easy and unexciting - cut back if your plants get leggy.

COMMENTS
Merges westwards into A. maculatus and is probably not distinct.

The flower spike can be quite dense and attractive in Section 4.
