DESCRIPTION

Aloe dichotoma - The Kokerboom or Quiver Tree

You are bidding for a pack of 5 seeds.

This is one of the giants of the Aloe world, growing up to 9 metres or more tall with a similar spread. Individual plants have been reliably dated to over 300 years old. The Kokerboom is so named because the this is the San word for quiver and the indigenous tribes used the hollowed out stems of this 'tree' to make quivers for their arrows. The English common name, Quiver tree, obviously has the same origin.

Although called a tree it is in reality one of the largest monocotyledon's and is more closely related to Lilies (it was once classified in the same family) than any type of true tree. The Latin name dichotoma means branching and it easy to see this in the adult plants .

The plant may flower in 20 years from seed in it's natural state, but in the far better conditions it will find in cultivation, this is likely to happen much more quickly. The flowers look like those of red hot pokers (unsurprising as they are from the same family), they are either yellow or orange-red, depending on the locality.

Growing Instructions

I always sell seeds that I have experience of growing so the instructions provided represent 1st hand experience. These instructions may change over the course of time (as I find out more about the plants and seeds) but the details that you will be provided with, at purchase, represent the latest version. If you have any questions concerning the culture requirements of this or any other item I am selling please contact me:

I will be happy to provide extra details you require.

Bidding on more than 1 item?

I will always combine shipping wherever this is possible and all auctions finishing within a SEVEN day period will qualify.  If I have not sent an invoice, please e-mail me for a combined invoice when you have finished bidding/buying, doing this will almost certainly save you money. 

Due to the varying weights of the seeds it is not possible to apply a standard discount without overcharging for the majority of cases.  Additionally I cannot apply a postal discount unless PayPal payments are combined.

Postage & Handling

International customers - streamlined postage for all seed orders

I will now only be charging two rates for postage for all orders of seeds REGARDLESS of the number of packs bought.

  1. European Rate
  2. Rest of World Rate

Once these rates roll out across my listings, I will once more 'trust' the automated check out process, to make things simpler

These new rates reflects the fact that I use PayPal postage for all my orders and these are the rates I need to charge to use this service

This should allow me to dispatch your orders more rapidly than before as I will not need to visit the Post Office for the majority of the orders, normally inside 24 hours - although at busy times this may take a little longer
