Neutral Porphyrostachys On Sep 8, 2010, Porphyrostachys from Portland, OR (Zone 8b) wrote:

Very attractive species from Madagascar much like a blue A. haworthioides, but with a flower similar to the A. compressa tribe. Another challenging dwarf that prefers the cool nights of more temperate places. If you want to grow it in the desert, you'll need a good shade house, a greenhouse with an evap. cooler or plan to keep it indoors in summer.

Positive palmbob On Nov 6, 2008, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

this is a gorgeous little aloe from Madagascar with pale blue spiny (soft) leaves. It looks like a smaller version of Aloe humilis (a South African species) but doesn't tend to sucker as rapidly if at all. Flowers are small and somewhat spherical in sillohuete, borne on a thin stem about 8"-1' long.
