Kumara plicatilis (Aloe plicatilis)


Kumara plicatilis (Aloe plicatilis) (Aloaceae) The new name is now Kumara plicatilis. It is a very distinct shrub-sized fan aloe with an incredibly architectural form. Leaves are placed in a double row lying over each other and forming a flattened ‘fan’. 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: Elandskloof. Harvest: August 2023
