IMPORTANT INFORMATION:
CHECK Dormancy Table to SEE WHAT'S GROWING & WHAT'S DORMANT

We remove some of the soil when we ship. There are usually no issues with a plants
out of soil or kept dry for a week or more. When you receive your plants, put them
into a pot with moist soil. Give
the roots opportunity to reachdown for water.
Please check to see if your plants should be watered at
the time of year you purchase. Some don't get a lot of water in winter and some not a lot of water in summer.
How often you water depends on how quickly your soil dries out. Most important, don't overwater.

The photos on our website represent what plants look like when growing.
We are not selling the plant in the photo.
Whether your plant has flowers depends on whether it is flowering at that time.
A pot may be one large plant or more than one plant. Plants grow at a different pace and different sizes
so if you order 2 plants coming out of the same size pot, they may not be the same size.

Sale plants may require additional freight payment

Aloe striata

Aloe striata is a stemless aloe with blue green leaves. The leaves are spineless having a smooth reddish margin without any teeth. Without the sun the margins remain green in color. Attractive coral red flowers are borne during the winter months on tall flat-topped inflorescences. It grows in stony soils on rocky hillsides in arid areas near the coast and the drier inland karoo areas. As with most aloes, Aloe striata provide nectar during winter which is an important source of food for the attractive sunbirds and many other nectivorous birds during the cooler period of the year when food is not readily available. They are fairly easy to cultivate and tolerate a wide variety of climatic conditions if it is planted in a well-drained soil in full sun and given adequate water but not over-watered. Propagation is from seed which grow fast, reaching flowering size in three to four years. The plant lower left had just been watered.
