Stunningly attractive aloe easily identified by the lack of spines on the inside surfaces of each leaf- to my knowledge this is the only spiny aloe completely free of them in this respect. Not the fastest growing aloe of course but a wonderful fully-formed treasure even while small.

Many sources recommend keeping this plant completely dry in winter, but my potted specimen looked tight and sad so Ive been watering about once a month. Dont go crazy and provide excellent drainage of course, but if you have a languishing plant, try regular irrigation. Otherwise I've not had any difficulty with it.
Cant wait for the amazing flower spike.

This is a very attractive small turquoise aloe (in sun) with strongly curved leaves covered with small, warty growths. It develops an almost comicly fat flower stalk in the late fall with a pinkish-red flower or two. As the temperatures drop, the colors of the leaves tend to pinken as is the case in many aloes and other succulents. If not watered for a long time, leaves tend to curl in on itself, making it look a bit like an anemone curling into a ball when protecting itself.
