This beautiful small aloe is very easy to keep and when it flowers ( mid winter in the southern hemisphere), it sends out multiple inflorescences with deep orange flowers. We struggled to find info on this aloe, starting with our copy of "The Aloes of Tropical Africa and Madagascar " G.W. Reynolds but it was'nt listed even under the subsp. of Aloe deltoideodonta which some internet sources claim. Thanks Palmbob and Dave's Garden for helping us with your great plantfiles!
