Aloe vacillans (100 seeds)


Out of stock

Aloe vacillans (Aloaceae) Indigenous to Yemen and Saudi Arabia. The leaves are a glaucous-green color, with a grayish waxy bloom that becomes tinged with violet in bright sun. Under drier conditions the leaves are held more erectly and bunched together, while under lusher conditions they are more spreading. They are wide at the base and taper to a point, with small brown teeth along the edges. 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: October 2022
