Plant Asclepia Kollektie in well-drained soil mixed with some dry gravel and in full sun and light shade. Plant the root vertically so that the eye is 3-5 cm / 2 " beneath the soil surface. Asclepia Kollektie need to be watered well after planting to stimulate growth and keep moist but water sparingly after that as Asclepia Kollektie are quite drought tolerant once established. Remove the faded flower heads as soon as they appear to promote growth. PLEASE NOTE: all parts of this plant is harmful if eaten.
Please soak the bare roots for 12-18 hours (do not exceed 24 hours). This allows them to take up the maximum amount of water without doing any injury to the plant.
