Single rosette of A. lolwensis looks like compact secundiflora, but lowensis is closer to the Ugandan A. mubendiensis.

relatively rare plant in cultivation.. .closely related to Aloe secundiflora (and looks a lot like it, too). got a moderately large seedling and already happy in full sun, turning from a muddy green to a nice maroon. Has plastic-like leaves with moderate teeth. From Kenya.
