    What is this Aloe?



    I got it from my aunt so I have no idea what it is or where she got it.

    Looks like a sickly A. vera.

    Oh, that's it. Do they get big at least? I just figured out they were tropical, not desert, so that's why it looks bad.

    Yeah, believe me, they're not tropical. They do just fine without water for weeks.

    They are from Northern African and while that's north of the Tropic of Cancer don't let it freeze or anything.


    Just because something is tropical doesn't mean it has to moist all the time by the way

    Well, my room's normally at 65-80% humidity (65 at night, when door is open slightly, up to 85 during day when closed and warm outside) so it'll probably do pretty good now.

    We had a small plant that we grew in the kitchen window for years in Maryland. When we moved out to the Phoenix area we planted it outside. It’s now a clump that measures about 4’ x4’ and about 2’ high (the bloom spikes can go up to 4'). It’s growing in clay/caliche soil and gets full sun for about the first half of the day. We never water it so it gets about 10” of rain a year – mainly in the Summer and Winter, and our afternoon relative humidity is in the low teens in the Summer and up to the thirties in the Winter.
