Aloe ortholopha


Aloe ortholopha. It is a rare stemless aloe with grey-green leaves with a pinkish tinge and orange/scarlet to blood-red flowers in winter. Its leaves are smooth, virtually spineless, very wide and silver-blue, with a glaucous sheen. Native to Zimbabwe. 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: April 2023
