This plant grows well in full sun in Southern California. It is easily rooted in potting soil with warmth.

Does fine in our salty air. Flower spike lasts for a couple of months - Don't cut it off - or it may not re-bloom for a couple of years. Can be seen in bloom almost anytime of year, here in Corpus. Takes full sun (or shade) all day, with no problem.

Neutral palmbob On Mar 26, 2004, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

dwarf aloe with thin, brownish speckled leaves and insignificant teeth along leaf margins. Clumper but very slow grower. Grows well outdoors in Pasadena where it gets some frost and no problems. Temps into the mid 20s in southern California did no damage to this plant, despite same temps wiping out several other species of aloe. Madagascan native.
