Aloe virens (100 seeds)

Aloe virens (Aloaceae) This is not an accepted name. It is probably a hybrid of Aloe. humilis. Small, suckering, greenish, warty plant with bright red flowers making up conical racemes. Flowers bloom in summer, which is not a normal time for humilis. 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: November 2018.
