    Aloe Suzannae - Any Growers?

    Hi Everyone,

    Picked up this seed grown Aloe Suzannae just last week.

    Has anyone been successful in growing this Aloe? I understand they are slow to get settled, so looking for any tips anyone may be willing to share.

    Right now it's growing in a very basic mix of peat, sand, compost, and lava rock. It's sitting in a location which gets approximately 6 hours of sun in the morning till about 2pm.

    Thanks!

    Jeff

    Hi! Yes, I've been growing this plant for about 1 year now & it takes off a after settling in. I acquired it from one of my clients as a gift as well as aloe elelgans. There were about 4 little ones packed in a big yogurt cup potted in miracle grow so I repotted them in the same soil mixed with perlite & peat to keep them happy. They've gotten much bigger & are really tough. I gave them to granny a few months ago & they continue doing great outside. They are given partial sun because they seem to grow more slowly in full sun & also mine turned a dull brownish red. They're not planted in the ground b/c they seem to hate long periods of rain & go soft.
