Hello everyone and happy Saturday!
I have acquired an aloe plant (I think)...along with a few other fun plants....and I would like to add it to my plant list, but I am not quite sure as to the exact name or species even on one. Could you plant guru's help a poor girl out? ;)

It is an aloe shaped plant but the leaves seem to be full of fluid/water. The leaves are also variegated. It kind of reminds me of watermelon rinds. What do you think?
Thumb of


Thank you in advance!

Brea, it looks like a haworthia but I am not sure what one it is.

Pretty! I wonder if it could be a Gasteria or Gasteraloe?

Hello Brea, that is a beautiful Haworthia, not an aloe, it looks like a Haworthia cuspidata that needs a bit more moisture to plump up some more.

This is my plant in early Nov 2015:

I grow it outdoors year round and actively grows during our winter to early Spring, while temps are still cool and gets some rains.

Ohhhh thank you Tarev! I was completely off by thinking it was an Aloe! Thank you for your help and knowledge! And thank you to everyone else who helped me as well!
I have to say that I just LOVE All Things Plants! I just wish I had more time to spend here! I just may have more time coming up soon, so you will be seeing more of me around.
