Aloe officinalis


Aloe officinalis. Clumping Arabian medicinal aloe with shiny (non-pruinose) yellowish green leaves and yellow or orange-red flowers. Vigorously offsetting via rhizomes, growing a short stem with age. Juvenile leaves are heavily spotted; adults may retain some spots, especially near the base of the leaves. 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: January 2023
