Aloe branddraaiensis (Aloaceae) (price per 5 seeds) It is in the group of spotted aloes and is stemless. The leaves are marked with white flecks which form rather indistinct stripes and armed with sharp brown teeth. They can take on a reddish-brown color when growing out in full sun. The tips of the leaves tend to dry out and die back and can sometimes be twisted. The flower color is a deep red and the flowers appear in winter on several much-branched inflorescences. 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. Harvest: June 2023
