Out of stock

Aloe elgonica (price per 20 seeds) It is an evergreen, succulent shrub with erect or decumbent stems that can be 1 metre or more long; the stems branch from the base, often forming large, dense clumps. Each stem is topped by a rosette of leaves. In late spring through mid-summer appear the bright red flowers in upright spikes on the a simple or branching inflorescence. 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. Harvest: January 2020
