19 in stock

Aloe ukambensis (price per 10 seeds)  It is a stemless species from Kenya. The leaves are wide and have numerous closely-spaced stripes running lengthwise. It turns an attractive dark-red color if given a bright sunny position. The plants may remain single, but often they will form a clump of several heads. The flower stalk bears several branches, with a tuft of red flowers at the end of each. 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: December 2023
