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.
