This, like many variegated Aloes has wide variety of variations in striation patterns based on where the offset growth center came off its the main plant. Some of these have an almost pure yellow leaf, while others are evenly striated.

Without chlorophyl a plant is likely to perish prematurely or be very very slow in its maturity. When given a choice, I would slect an evenly variegated plant over a bright, high percentage yellow variegate.

These will multiply fairly quickly. and eventually the evenly variegated plant will produce high percentage yellow offsets.
