HOW TO GROW ALOE VERA FROM SEED
It is important to use a medium that is half peat and half sand. This makes for an excellent, well-draining potting medium. Perlite, compost, and sand can also be used. It's important to provide loose, nonsoggy material when growing aloe from seeds. During the summer, you can grow the seeds outside if you are in a warm climate. The temperature of the medium should be 23 degrees Celsius in bright light and ideally moderately moist in either case.
CHOOSING THE PERFECT CONTAINER
Aloe Vera Barbadensis Miller Seed is a very easy-growing herb, so almost any container will do, but flats use less soil and provide a controlled environment for seedlings. After seedlings have been removed from heat mats, watering them from under prevents damping-off and provides the roots with just the right amount of moisture. Spread the seeds about an inch apart after lightly dampening the medium. Cover them with a light dusting of the sand. To maintain high humidity for germination, many growers cover flats or containers with plastic lids.
CARE DURING PROPAGATION
A few tips can help you grow Aloe Vera Seeds Herb successfully. Unfortunately, if you are using a non-sterile organic medium, this can lead to fungal issues that may kill your babies. As soon as you see sprouts, mist the soil to keep it moist. Dependent upon the environment, this process may take two to four weeks. In the early stage of seedling life, it is most important to protect seedlings from desiccation without drowning them. As soon as four or more leaves appear, pot each into a 2-inch pot.
