This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.

Aloe karasbergensis (Aloaceae)  It is now sunken into striata and the new name is Aloe striata ssp. Karasbergensis. It is a low-growing, single to branched, stemmed plant, which tends to lie horizontally on the ground as the plant gets older. Stems may reach a height of 300 mm, with old leaves that persist around the stem. The leaf color varies from a pale green-grey to bronze and brown with a pinkish tinge, under sun-stressed conditions. The flowers are tubular in shape with a slight basal swelling, and are a dull red color. 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: May 2023
