8 in stock

Aloe longibracteata. (Aloaceae) It is a large evergreen aloe that reaches a height of 1m. It forms groups of rosettes with bright green leaves that are spotted or striped with a white/cream color. During late winter tall, erect, branched inflorescence is borne with masses of dark pink to bright red tubular flowers that attract birds. 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: November 2023
