I am a home improvement contractor in the Myrtle Beach, SC area and do a lot of work in this one retirement condo building. They have an area at the trash recycle area on the ground floor where people bring things they no longer want but someone else might.

I liked the looks of this one plant that I saw in this area and it was drying out due to lack of interest so I thought that I would give it a new home.

I have looked over the web and am wondering if it is a type of aloe but would like to know what it is?

Looks like possibly a snow flake aloe or something along those lines. I am pretty sure aloe the exact variety is hard to say for me. Hopefully someone with more knowledge will come along Smiling

Wow, nice save on that beautiful plant! I'm not real familiar with succulent plants but it sure reminds me of Aloe 'Minnie Belle'

One of our knowledgeable members like @Baja_Costero may be able to give an exact ID on your lovely plant.

Yes, it is something along those lines. "Minnie Belle" is a larger, wider hybrid of Aloe juvenna, which is a stronger possibility. Provide very strong light over the winter (the most light you possibly can if the plant will be indoors). More info on that species and the genus here:

My sincere "Thank You" to all who responded. I appreciate the tips also for I didn't really have a clue!

This was my first visit here but as you all are already aware of, there is a tremendous amount of valuable information here.
