Neutral palmbob On Nov 27, 2006, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

medium sized stemless aloe from Kenya. Has pale green spotted leaves with small whitish teeth. Leaves and shape of plant somewhat similar to Aloe ver but sparsely spotted and greener. Flowers are very cold sensitive and my plant usually aborts its flower just before it matures if temps get below 30F.
