I am trying to ID this Aloe so that I can give some of it away in a swap.
I think it might be Aloe parallelifolia, but that is a guess based purely on a little googling.

Does anyone recognize it?

Hi Susan,

I do not think it looks right for that aloe. See a set of good pictures here:

You plant does not look like that at all. Too many spots, overall different leaf posture and a different way of how the leaves are attached to the stem.

It is hard to say what specific Aloe your plant is. Spotted Aloes are really hard to ID especially without seeing how their flowers look and even with flowers it is incredibly hard. Someone else may know though.

Thanks, Thijs.
I've never seen this Aloe bloom; it might not be getting enough light.
