Aloe turkanensis (Aloeaceae) Indigenous to Uganda and Kenya. The stem is ascending, becoming decumbent, growing up to 70cm long and branching from the base to form large clumps 2 metres or more across. Each stem is topped by a dense rosette of 14 - 18 spear-shaped leaves that can be up to 70cm long and 9cm wide at the base. Sowing : Seeds germinate very well but may damp off if overwatered. Use a mixture of river sand, compost and soil to sow seeds in. Sprinkle the seeds evenly on the surface and cover with a layer of small pebbles. The pebbles help the seedlings to stay upright and prevent damping off. Keep seed tray in a dry warm corner and do not allow to dry out. Transplant the seedlings after one year. Locality : Ex Hort. Date of harvest : October 2017
