Family: Aloaceae

Up to 1m high with a short erect stem. Leaves have a characteristic striped appearance. Unbranched inflorescence up to 1,2 m high with yellow flowers.

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.
