Positive palmbob On Jul 23, 2004, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

smallest of all the suckering aloes, this one is from Madagascar. It has stiff, short, thick spotted leaves in rosettes up to 2" in diameter. Great for pots. Have several growing around the garden- definitely not a great aloe for full, hot blazing sun in low water situations. I have a couple in that situation, and though still alive, look very unhappy. However, in shadier situations, this is a great outdoor plant in southern California (just sort of dinky for the average landscape). I planted mine at the base of larger, caudiciform succulents, so I could always find them. The flower reliably and grow very slowly... but no problems.
