Aloinopsis luckhoffii
Aloinopsis luckhoffii
Aloinopsis luckhoffii

Origin and habitat: South Africa, Cape Province

Flowers: Daisy-like, silky, pale yellow, golden yellow, yellowish bronze or salmon pink, and quite large (2.5-3 cm in diameter) compared to the tiny leaves.

Blooming season: Should usually bloom at the end of winter if it gets enough light. If it is too cloudy the flowers fail to open entirely.

Cultivation and propagation: They are easy and rewarding plants than can be grown in pots or in the rock-garden. They will grow in the cooler parts of the year, and flower in winter if they gets good light (direct sunlight is essential to bloom well).

Soil: Can be cultivated in the ground (in warm climate) or in a container. The soil should preferably be a very porous potting mix to increase drainage.

Pots: They need small but deep pots to accommodate their tap roots and provide a very good drainage. They can be kept for years in a 7x7 cm pot, and should be repotted only every 2-3 years.

Watering: They come from winter rainfall areas but in cultivation, they can be watered year-round. It is probably dormant in summer, so it is usually recommended not to water much in summer and also reduce watering frequency in winter, but it is a very adaptable species that can grows opportunistically whenever the water availability and growing condition are favourable. Water it less than average if in bigger pots.

Frost tolerance: In cultivation they likes warmth (recommended minimum winter temperature 5° C) however plants kept perfectly dry are quite frost hardy (it is reported to be hardy to at least -12° C if very dry). Outdoors they grow best where there are cold winters, but for safe cultivation it is best to avoid freezing temperatures.

Use: This is a good pot plant suited for a non heated green house. It can be also cultivated outdoors in raised beds, terraces if sheltered from winter rain.

Propagation: Cuttings or seeds. Like most others in this family, this small clump- forming plant is easy to grow from seed.
