vegetatively this variety looks very similar to the 'type' species, with the long, flat bright green leaves lined with green spines that do not have distinct coloration- look like they were cut from the leaf instead of being added on later like most Aloe leaves look. I have this plant in partial shade and so far it's a bit slower growing than the type variety, but could be its slightly different placement and soil.

This variety differs from the type by having bulbils rise off only the main flower peduncle and not the side branches, where they come off in the type species.
