Germination of

Aloe Compressa Var. Purple

Purple Aloe Plant -RARE: Purple aloe vera, Aloe vera "Black Gem"

Aloe Compressa Var. Purple

To germinate Aloe Compressa Var. Purple seeds, start by filling a pot with well-draining soil mix. Scatter the seeds on the surface of the soil and cover with a thin layer of sand or grit. Water the soil lightly and place the pot in a warm, bright location with a temperature of around 70-85�F. Keep the soil slightly moist and germination should occur in approximately 2-3 weeks. Once the seedlings have emerged, provide bright sunlight and reduce watering frequency to encourage root development.

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.
