I too have a bunch of Aloe, many which I am having a hard time identifying. Having cruised through many of the local Los Angeles arboretums, it is becoming obvious that even the experts aren't sure what many species are called- many are simply called 'sp.', and many have a variety of names.. and many are obviously incorrectly named. Though I will probably be no help, does this plant have a stalk, as it appears in the photo, and has it had any suckers. If not, it sure is more likely to be a 'tree aloe' making the list of possibilities a lot smaller.

Hi BotanyBob;
It is getting a stalk as it gets older, and yes it had suckes But these were coming from all over the pots.

Aloe saponaria (actually correct name is now Aloe maculata) has unique flowers so if this plant ever flowers, we will know for sure.

I also vote for Aloe saponaria. I have a big clump in my garden, mine has lots of orange-red flowers early summer. Will send a picture when I find out how to upload!

A. saponaria has shorter stiffer leaves with sharper points. Could be a hybrid; say Aloe arborescens X vera? Flowers would help.

no. Aloe ellenbeckii has finer spotting, inky, dinky teeth and leaves are stiff (no drooping in that species unless it's in the process of rotting)... and does not get quite that large

Sorry I get in as I am not an expert on plant names. This aloe looks exactly like the one I bought which is Aloe Vera. I juice pieces of it and use on the scratches and cuts. It multiplies like crazy, have it for years.

Wildplants7 Aloe Vera is a common name for a group of plants that do that, some small, some giants, can look up the word Agave for all kinds of Aloes...

Looks like Aloe grandidentata or a hybrid thereof, grown in weak light...
It is a very common pass-along plant in the deep south...

It's frowned upon to ask for a new ID in someone else's thread. If you start a new thread with your photos, I'll answer with the species.
