Hi, Just repotted this sad aloe savaged from friend's long unattended garden area. Wonder what kind of aloe it is: could it be juvenna? aculeata? minnie belle? or even some X Gasteraloe (pearl aloe)?

I'd say it is an aloe gasteria hybrid.

Looks like Aloe aristata (Lace aloe) to me.

Haworthia rugosa. Above Aloe aristata is also correct. Too many hybrids and naming confusion. I beleive it is more a Haworthia (small) than Aloe. Just me.

Thanks, Tarev & Kate & Stush. I think Kate hit the jackpot; it looks exactly like a Lace aloe (i.e., if Kate's link id the aloe correctly, compare one copied pic below to mine in starting post).

Stush, I was wondering if it was considered a Haworthia at first....amazing how much variation there is in this group of plants! Glad we figured it out. It is a lovely little plant!

I have only room for small now but I do wish it did grow bigger. Nice form and all.
