Aloe plicatilis

Cultivation and Propagation: Kumara plicatilis (Aloe plicatilis) is an attractive and interesting accent plant to have in a sunny garden. It easy to grow and suited for any well drained soil in full sun. It is a winter grower, sometimes a tricky grower and prone to rot.

Growing rate: It grows slowly, but not agonisingly so - being able to increase its height by 10-20 cm per year under favourable conditions. It is a long-lived plant and once established, it will be content in its position and with its soil for years. It is often in danger of being overgrown, smothered and killed by faster growing plants in its vicinity.
Exposure: It can tolerate moderate shade, and a plant that has been growing in shade should be slowly hardened off before placing it in full sun as the plant will be severely scorched if moved too suddenly from shade into sun.
Watering: It tolerates weekly watering in the summer, once a month, or not at all in the colder months of winter. Can withstand long periods of drought, but they will thrive and flower more profusely if watered in the correct season.
Hardiness: It can take a few degrees of frost in winter as well, but prefers hot summers. It grows much better outdoors in spring and summer.
