Aloidendron dichotomum (Aloe dichotoma)


Aloidendron dichotomum (Aloe dichotoma). Quiver tree(e), Kokerboom(a) This distinctive tree aloe has smooth branches, which are covered with a thin layer of whitish powder that helps to reflect away the hot sun’s rays. The bark on the trunk forms beautiful golden brown scales. The crown is often densely rounded as a result of the repeatedly forked branches. The blue-green leaves are borne on terminal rosettes. The bright yellow flowers are borne during the winter times. Sowing: Seeds germinate very well but may damp off if over-watered. 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: Citrusdal. Harvest: December 2023
