Aloe cameronii

Aloe cameronii, also known as the red aloe, is a succulent plant that produces orange-red flowers. The seeds can be sown year-round, but the best time is in the spring or summer. Soak the seeds in water for 24 hours before planting. Prepare a well-draining soil mix, such as a mixture of sand and peat moss, and sow the seeds on the surface of the soil. Cover the container with plastic to create a humid environment, and place it in a warm, bright location. Keep the soil moist but not waterlogged, and germination usually occurs within 2 to 4 weeks.

Some of plants may have very have specific germination requirements that may not be covered in these general instructions. 

Many seeds require pre-treatment before sowing which we try to list here when we can, but this information may not be present here.  Germination times and germination temperatures are to be a guide only.  Many factors can DRASTICALLY affect this.


It's always a good idea to research the specific germination requirements from multiple sources for each plant before attempting to grow them from seed.
