I have a new plant from O'tooles Nursery in the cactus area.
I have tried to add to database but cannot seem to get it to go Confused

There is a lot of chatter on the web, but cannot find a scientific. It is a tiny plant about 1-1 1/2 Inches and is marked Aloe Helen Haage. Looks like some grow to huge size. But am in the wrong zone for outdoor growth Shrug! .

I found something that said Gasteraloe 'Helen Haage' Looks like 'Katherine McDonald' but leaves are more densely tubercled. Looks like a hybrid of A. juvenna and G. batesiana. Grows a stem covered with leaves that are a green gold colour, covered with golden pearly tubercles. I'm all ears!

Family Aloaceae, Genus: Gasterealoe, Synonym:X Gastrolea
Synonym:Aloe gastrolea , Category:Cactus and Succulents


Thanks for all your help I tip my hat to you. I still need to add it to the database.
Marilyn

Any help is appreciated!!!!! I'm all ears!

No, maybe no one else had this one.

I am just going with gasteraloe Helen Haage for now.

I have two pages of notes on it with lots of technical jargon I do not understand, but noting specific to this plant.

I will wait until it matures a bit and hopefully try again. Sad

Give this a try. Just copy and paste what you have in your first post, and start a new thread over in the Forum.
There are a bunch of really good plant sleuths in the Plant ID Forum http://garden.org/forums/view/plantid/
