I have this ID'd as Gasteria "Ed Hummels".................

Reno, NV(Zone 6b)

I don't think its a Gasteria

Portage, WI(Zone 5a)

I agree, not a Gasteria.

Uh, Oh, I'll have to keep an eye on this thread.....................!!

Could it be a Gasteraloe?

Acton, CA(Zone 8b)

Those sure look like Aloe grandidentata… very slow-growing, suckering (offsetting) species that I personally have never gotten to flower. Not a Gasteria or even has any Gasteria in them.

I agree with palmbob that those do look like Aloe grandidentata. I bought one from the Desert Botanical Garden sale and it looks very similar to yours.

So it is going to grow up and get three dimensional and have spots, not stripes?

Portage, WI(Zone 5a)

Gee, I thought it was 3D already.

the few mature plants I have seen (though not convinced they were correctly identified) in botanical gardens did have larger spots and in a somewhat striped pattern…
