    I have 2 plants of this smaller variety of aloe. Both arrived about 4 years ago as 2" pups in a trade. One has stayed under 5" in a stemmed glass and the other has grown to 7" in a terracotta 8" pot in filtered sun on my SE exposure porch. I cover them with a washcloth when temps drop to 34 degrees and a frost is possible. If temps dip to 32, I bring them into my garage for a few days then back out on my porch where they are protected from north wind. Neither has sent out pups yet, but I hope they multiply.
