This is a clustering, cliff dwelling Aloe described in 1995 and is only known from a sheer cliff face around 800m high in Oman where A. whitcombei is also found. Flowers are a bright orange red.

new to my collection as well... just received a small seedling mail order.. has pale green leaves, tiny spots (could be a juvenile characteristic) and very tiny marginal teeth. Will update this as I learn more. From Oman.

Never made it - rotted and ravaged by snails. Maybe will try it again some day.
