Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral palmbob On Aug 20, 2011, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

this plant has proven fairly difficult for me to grow.. as its stem gets longer, the rosettes get smaller and now it down to a sinlge leaf after 4 years of growing in probably far too much sun (though in half day sun here in inland southern California). Seems to like it much shadier. Also seems to like more water than I normally give it. Flowers are white, but mine has never flowered. Leaves are thick, stiff and have very small, closely space white teeth along the edges (almost invisible). Grows on high mist shrouded cliffs (we have very little 'mist' here in so Cal except along the coast... not where I live though).

Cliff dwelling species from Oman discovered with Aloe collenetteae. Plants are a blue green color with small, scattered white spots and tend to sucker. White flowers rise in fall. Still quite uncommon in cultivation.
