My friend just gave me this Aloe. Nice teeth like dog molars on sides of leaves. No ID on this. Looks similar to my Aloe 'Crosby's Prolific', A. nobilis X A. humilis var. echinatum.

I agree. Aloe humilis is a cool plant and its progeny are too! Here's a humilis offset about to flower for the first time, at the end of spring.

I am surprised to see a CP that big and juicy without tons of offsets around it. They tend to get extra super clumpy over time.

Baja, I love your A. humilis. Looks similar to one I see called 'Mini Bell'. I wonder it it's the same. Sold on Ebay and is expensive.

Stush, I'm guessing that Minibelle is related to a different aloe (A. juvenna)... also a very attractive plant. The leaves are concave on the upper surface, unlike the humilis I have growing here, which tends to have pretty fat leaves.

Thanks Baja, After looking it up on the internet, My A. juvenna that I had for several years is actually A. Minibelle.

Sounds right to me, though I have no personal experience with that hybrid. The juvenna rosettes tend to be narrower, taller, and more closed in comparison. I tip my hat to you.

I dug thru my receipts and found it, purchased at Wal-Mart's 2013 and was named A. 'Minne Belle'. Some how when I repotted it, I lost the I.D. which was on the original pot. At least I was also right in calling it A. juvenna. Looks so much alike that it is confused with Aloe squarrosa Baker 1883 (Syn: A. concinna, A. zanzibarica). Which is still confusing to me. On ebay, they show just a young start (close-up) thinking it was not a column growing type but a rosette form. I also purchase a Aloe descoingsii x haworthioides thinking it was nice looking and medium sized. Well surprised when it arrived. Very small and had about 10 heads on one small root system. I just separated them today. Took 6 off to give the head a chance to rebound.

That particular hybrid (same parentage as "Pepe") is extra clumpy and looks great in a wide mound with flowers. So now you have 7 of them! Big Grin
