Not much known about this southern Madagascan aloe... lives in the park there by the same name. Just got a seedling mail order and way too soon to tell you much more about it. Is spotted and looks an awful lot like so many south African spotted aloes that I am not sure what one would use, other than flower shape, to tell these apart.

After looking at the scant information on this species on the internet, I am not sure what I have is the real thing.... there are thee completely different plants that recurr in web searchs and only one of those is probably the correct plant. At least one Identified as this is really A capitata.... but the other two look very dissimilar... and none of the three look like the plant I have been sent as this species... who knows!?
