Aloe Ferox Seeds

Aloe ferox is a medicinal succulent that is native to South Africa. It’s known to have more medicinal value than aloe vera. Aloe ferox is a cousin to aloe vera, and the gel in the leaves has virtually all the same uses and health benefits as aloe vera. Although both aloes contain 7 out of the 8 essential amino acids, the amount found in aloe ferox is nearly double that of aloe vera. Ferox adapts well to home or greenhouse environment.

In the wild it can grow up to 10 feet (3.0 m) in height – if grown indoors it will grow to a size similar to aloe vera. The flowers are orange or red, and stand between 2 and 4 feet (0.61 m and 1.2 m) above the leaves.

Succulents are very susceptible to root rot, so you must use well draining soil. They tend to thrive on neglect – just water them when the top inch of soil is dried out.

    My seeds have been planted for only a week and they are sprouting! I’m using a grow light that is on 24/7 as required by some of my other seeds.
    Looking forward to growing these.

    I ordered a pack of seed in 2015 and never got around to planting till may 2017. The seeds took over a month to sprout but they seemed to germinate consistently . I planted them in a bin in the greenhouse in may and just watered the bin whenever I watered my other stuff. I didn’t use anything fancy for soil either. So all negligence considered they seemed to do quite well. I had a problem mid summer with all the seedlings turning pure red on me but I gave them a bit of shade and they turned green again. right now they are a healthy green shade sitting in pots inside the house with no light other than the house lights LED light bulbs. Im pretty sure transplanting them out of the bin was hard on them but most of them pulled through. If you’re gonna try growing I suggest starting them in jiffy pots or right in the final growing container and for best results you should probably plant them the year you buy the seed haha.
