Aloe longistyla (100 seeds)


Out of stock

Aloe longistyla (Aloaceae)  It is a dwarf aloe, characterized by its exceptionally small rosettes. Plants are stem-less, usually solitary, but may well have 2 or 3 rosettes. The densely crowded, greyish-green leaves have a conspicuous waxy layer on their surfaces. Up to 50 pale salmon-pink to coral-red flowers are borne on these plants in the winter. 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: Calitzdorp. Harvest: December 2023
