Aloe aculeata (Aloaceae). Fairly hardy, stemless Aloe with a rosette of broad succulent leaves with thorns on both surfaces that are sometimes white. The leaves curve inwards giving this Aloe a rounded ball like shape that can grow to a 1m dia. The tall narrow flower spikes are borne in winter and carried on a single stem in young specimens but will become branched as the plant ages. It's flowers are either yellow or orange or bicoloured yellow and orange. Grows very well in rocky areas and makes a great addition to a grassland garden. Size up to 1m. 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 : Ohrigstad. Date of harvest : Oct 2018
