R30.00

9 in stock

Aloe spicata. It is single- or multi-stemmed and grows up to 2m tall, with about 30 leaves in a dense rosette. The leaves are 600–800 mm long, spreading to slightly recurved, channeled, with small firm teeth along margins, and are bright green, often flushed with reddish green color. The flowers are stalkless, small and yellow, with long, prominent stamens and they produce abundant amounts of nectar, which attracts large numbers of birds and insects. 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 2024
