Careful with that one...

I know you've read up on its culture, it's a winter grower so nows not the best time...

I wanted one for years...I rarely ever order plants, low and behold after 10 or 12 yes I find one at lowes, $20, a big one too, a foot tall and startin to trunk a bit!

A week later I go back to get it...it was 1/2 off!

Anyway, kept er goin for almost 2 years but last summer she got wet while shuffling plants around...the heart was black in 2 weeks...there was never any sign of trouble.

Point being, not only are not the typical carefree aloe...but they are not the least bit forgiving if their treatments off during summer dormancy...

Looks good tho!
I'll try again...if I ever see one again
Please tree mail me for trades, I'm ALWAYS actively looking for more new plants, and love to trade!
