Aloe capitata var. quartziticola


Aloe capitata var. quartziticola

Family: Aloaceae

It is a species from Madagascar. A stemless aloe with a dense yet most often solitary rosette with many long gray-green fleshy leaves that can be blushed with bluish, pink or even dark red on the leaves and with red margins and small sharp brown teeth. In mid-winter appear the inflorescences topped with dense spherical capitate racemes of orange buds on reddish pedicles that open to display orange-yellow long narrow bell shaped flowers that open first from near the top.

Sowing instructions: 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. Harvest: October 2023
