English name:Torch Aloe
Latin name:Aloe Aristata
I am an evergreen flowering perennial plant and i'm pretty hardy! I produce a tubular, orange flowers once a year if i flower.
Useful to know:
I am native to the mountain grasslands of southern Africa and Lesotho.
I can grow up to 30cm in height with a spread of around 40-60cm.
I live in full sun in the wild, so a window sill is perfect.
I am drought resistant so only water me when my soil feels dry to the touch.
I'm low maintenance and should be able to cope with most temperatures.
Feed me a balanced succulent fertiliser 2 or 3 times in the growing season.
No pruning or grooming required.
Repot me every year or two in a mix of well drained, gritty soil.
Don't eat me, this could cause severe discomfort!
I am a pretty tough pup and have been know to grow outside and even survive a harsh UK winter.
