HOW TO GROW FROM SEED
To successfully grow the seeds you need a half and half mixture of peat and horticultural sand that makes an excellent, well-draining medium. You can also use a combination of sand, compost, and perlite. The idea when growing aloe from seed is to provide loose material that won’t get soggy. If you are in a warm climate, you can grow the seeds outdoors. Keep the medium moderately moist either way in bright light and where temperatures are ideally 23 Degree Celsius.
CHOOSING THE PERFECT CONTAINER
Keep in mind that Aloe Vera is a very easy growing herb so any container is good but flats use less soil and create a controlled environment for seedlings. Watering from under the seedlings in an open flat prevents damping-off and gives the roots just enough moisture after they have been removed from heat mats. Lightly dampen the medium and spread the seed about an inch apart. Cover them with a light dusting of the sand. Many growers put a plastic lid on flats or containers in plastic bags to keep humidity high for germination.
CARE DURING PROPAGATION
It is not hard to grow Aloe Vera, you just have to keep in mind some tips. Unfortunately, if you are using a non-sterile organic medium, this can lead to fungal issues that may kill your babies. Mist the surface of the soil to keep it moist until you see sprouts. This may take 2 to 4 weeks depending upon the environment. The most important thing when seedlings are still at the two-leaf stage is to prevent desiccation while not drowning the poor things. Once four or more leaves are observed, pot each into 2-inch pots.
