Aloe graminicola (Aloe lateritia var. graminicola) (20 seeds)


Out of stock

Aloe graminicola (Aloe lateritia var. graminicola)(price per 20 seeds) It grows as a slow-growing, stemless to short-stemmed rosette of leaves up to fifty or sixty centimetres tall. It’s green-maroon-burgundy in colour and its leaves are wonderfully dappled with different shades, giving it a highly distinct appearance. Bizarrely tubular, variable blooms appear in late winter to early spring, coloured apricot-orange-mauve-rose. 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: Kenya. Harvest: January 2021
