Aloe zebrina (transvaalensis, ammophila) Aloaceae. It is a small to med sized maculated/striped aloe that form small groups from offsets at the base of plants of varying size. It can grow up to up to 160 cm tall and 200 cm in diameter It looks a bit like many other striped to spotted aloes particularly to Aloe saponaria but with slender more elongated leaves. Due to its wide distribution it is a very variable species and differences exist between populations. Sowing : Seeds germinate very well but may damp off if over watered. 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.
