Aloe microstigma
Aloe microstigma

Just like aloe melancantha this succulent is also best grown from fresh seeds and should be sown in summer or autumn. Use a coarse sand medium and cover it lightly with sand, keep the seeds moist but not wet and within 2 weeks the seeds will have germinated. You must grow this aloe in sunny slightly sheltered well-drained areas. If your succulents must be fed using an organic-based fertilizer in a liquid solution, alternatively you can use bone meal, mixing it in the soil. This is especially good when transplanting or planting aloes.
