I purchased Aloe seeds on Ebay and said they were Hybrid Aloe from US supplier. That was four years ago. Got about 20 different very small growing plants. Purchased Aloe Polyphylla Spiral Aloe 100 Seeds on ebay from China. Got all sorts of Aloes but no Aloe poly. 100 seeds for $24. That was two years ago and they passed up my first batch of Aloe seedlings. The next batch I purchased also on Ebay was suppose to be Aloe Polyphylla Rotation Plant seeds. 100 for only $8.90 from China shipped to my house. Who can beat that. Problem was it was grass seed. No aloe what so ever. Big waist.
Below is the pictures of my plants. Please help me ID them. Thanks.
These guys have similar looking spines. Two pictures.

Yay what fun! Hurray!

#7-8 = hybrids of striata and maculata, or some mixed parentage with striata. looks almost like (striata x maculata) crossed with something else.
#27-29 = vaombe-ish (could be large)
#32,34,37-39 = hybrids of striata with a maculate aloe

The resemblance of several plants to Aloe striata is not accidental (pretty common and tough plant). There are 3 things which tip you off that they are not pure striata: (1) spots, (2) marginal teeth, (3) suckering behavior (which you will probably observe down the road with most of those plants). We have a lot of those types of hybrids growing around here and they tend to be really attractive plants with nice flowers, so I'm not at all down on the mixed parentage. Some of your plants look like only part hybrid, i.e. much more striata than maculata. The more striata-ish, the better the flowers in my experience.

Plants #3-4 are the ones that look most promising to me (or maybe I just like big chunky blue aloes).

Thanks Jean, Deebie, and Baja.
Those Striata X Maculate are the ones I first purchased. They were very slow growing and just now starting to get some size. Seem to be hardy to some extend is so much that they been hit with temps as low as 35 degrees F. and lots of rain all month of May. So far April was better than May. I need to know how big some might get?

The striata hybrids will vary up to about 2 feet wide, but they may start offsetting before they get that big.

I have a problem. 2 feet is too big for my wintering over come fall. So I may wish to trade or give away maybe next year when they start to increase in size.
