This is the end of my second year of growing this Somalian aloe in southern California- all mine have started as small seedlings, which have been grown along side other Aloe species seedlings in several instances... this one is a slug in comparison... SLOW!. Slow growing usually means more likely to rot... and that has certainly been the case... but some are gradually getting larger.
