    Nice plants though your Crassula definitely wants more light and it looks like the Aloe would benefit from more as well.

    I got it at a little nursery on the side of the road. I had stopped for gas and decided to go in.

    Getting nostalgic, these remind me of my grandmother's "mother-in-law's tongue" as she called it, a plant that resembled a more grounded version of your aloe ciliaris
    Come to me flies and crawling bugs. This plant wants to give you great big hugs
    Aren't I pretty, don't I smell good? I'd come to you if I could
    But I can't so you must come to me, I'm sure we will get along splendidly

    Aloe ciliaris is one of the fastest growing aloes around, and it makes pups fairly easily. I didn't have any idea how fast it would shoot up when I got it. You can top them, and plant the top, but if you let them keep growing, you eventually have to stake it. I've done that now, and it grows straighter, but I'm considering pruning out the top.

    This is what my grandma always called mother-in-law's tongue - sansevieria trifasciata. I've also heard it called snake plant.

    This is a variegated one.
