Aloe hereroensis (100 seeds)


6 in stock

Aloe hereroensis (Aloaceae) It usually grows a single rosette, but may branch into clumps of up to three similar ones. The lower leaf surface is characteristically spotted, especially in young plants, whilst the upper one is clear of such spots, distinguishing the species from the maculate aloes. The inflorescence is usually repeatedly branched, resulting in an elaborate panicle of short, capitate racemes. Flower colour may be red, yellow or orange. 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 : Upington. Harvest : October 2023
