Just wanted to share my try at growing Aloe from seeds
I purchased the seeds 8-9 months ago of eBay. The four varieties I chose were Sunset, Sunrise, Fang and Marmalade. I tried when I received them but it was winter and there must not have been enough sun/warmth as nothing sprouted.
I planted four seeds per section and am using a modified food container from a restaurant. I just drilled some holes in the clear lid to allow for some evaporation/circulation of air. The seeds were planted just over a month ago and I saw green sprouts braking the surface after about a week and a half. The soil is just normal Miracle grow potting soil, nothing special.
Here we are as of yesterday, I'm pretty hopeful/excited!
