Gardeners' Notes:

Positive Porphyrostachys On Aug 30, 2009, Porphyrostachys from Portland, OR (Zone 8b) wrote:

Surprisingly tolerant of the desert conditions in and around Phoenix. For being a former Lomatophyllum (typically more coastal plants) it doesn't seem to mind the heat at all. No idea yet on the cold tolerance, but I would imagine it's a bit flimsy to cold. I keep this plant, so far, under shade cloth.

Neutral palmbob On Dec 17, 2008, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

Just ordered on of these... was once a Lomatophyllum, but all those have been included in Aloe now. From Madagascar. Grows supposedly into a stemmed plant.. initially it was a very fast grower quickly getting up to 2' or more in diameter... but has markedly slowed since. No sign of stem yet after 2 years. Snails love this plant!
