The Lace Aloe, Aloe aristata, is difficult to find for sale.  This small, unusual and attractive aloe is distinguished by its soft green lanceolate leaves.  It is decorated with white spots on the underside of the leaves.  Depending upon the environment in which your plant is grown, some leaves will develop a cream colored, mottled zigzag pattern.

Mature Size:  Height 6”;  Spread 6”

Light:  The plant thrives in bright light and struggles in low light conditions.

Flowers:  If placed in optimum lighting conditions orange-red flowers will appear in the fall.  This striking aloe variety is beautiful as a single potted plant or planted as the central focal point in an arrangement of small succulents.  

Care:  The Lace Aloe requires little ongoing maintenance other than appropriate watering.  

Soil:  A special blend for cactus and succulent soil available at most garden centers will work well.

Water:  As with most succulents, let the soil dry completely before watering.  Completely drench the soil by irrigating until the water drains out the hole in the bottom of the pot.  Wait until the soil has completely dried before watering again.
