Could anyone ID this Aloe please. It doesn't have fleshy leaves and isn't particularly fast growing, maybe as it doesn't get a lot of water. Thank you.

I think I had looked at this and then discounted it as World of Succulents first describes it as fast growing and on the same page as not particularly fast growing, which mine isn't. Also the leaves on mine seem shorter and lie flatter. Happy to go with the ID if nothing else comes along to say it is something else. Yes you can use the picture.

I have the plant. It has what you call a really irregular growth pattern. It...kinda stagnates at a certain point...or it picks up speed afterwards.
It may clump instead. Leaf shortness is affected by sun-broader and shorter leaves the more sun its exposed to. Also watering conditions. I recognize it by the flower.
Like i said, this plant is somewhat variable, both by genotype and conditions...
But nothing surprising on account of its hybrid nature..
Some of those variations are from what ive observed very similar to one of its parents: aloiampelos ciliaris..
