How to Grow
Plant knifophia bareroots at the earliest opportunity following delivery. Grow red hot poker plants in a sunny or semi-shaded position, in any rich, fertile, well drained soil. Position the bareroot so that the crown of the plant is just a few cm below soil level. Water well to settle the soil around the roots.
