I bought this as an Aloe Vera around 5 years ago, and repotted it recently. Since then it has grown enormously and I would like to know more about how to care for it. Unfortunately I don't know the specific name of it to find out any more information.
I have trawled through so many plant identification pages and have yet to find anything that looks exactly like it.

Please, if you know what it is, could you let me know. I would be so very appreciative.

Many thanks, Olive

It looks somewhat like an intergeneric hybrid to me, as in x Gasteraloe 'Cosmo'

Hi! Thank you both for getting back to me. I think tofitropic was correct having looked at lots (and lots!) of pictures. Thank you so much.
