var. verekeri leaves split if it is given too much water in spring and summer.

It seems to be more susceptable to this condition than any of the other forms of chabaudii that I have grown, although others have this issue to a lesser degree.

No other Aloe that I have grown exhibits the degree of leaf splitting as has been observed in A. chabaudii.
