Aloe cryptopoda

Aloe cryptopoda can be propagated by division or seed. If you are propagating by seed it is best to sow during spring or summer. Germination will take place within three weeks.
Aloe cryptopoda is best grown in small groups in areas like bushveld gardens where frost is not bad, and be sure to plant it in a sunny location for example a warm northern slope or rockery.
Be sure to sow in well-drained sandy soil and keep it moist. The seedlings can be pricked out as soon as they are big enough to be handled which should be in after a year. Always use fertile soil and make sure your aloe receives full sun. Compost and organic fertilizer will help to promote growth.
