Aloe aristata, also known as Torch Plant and Lace Aloe, is a species of aloe indigenous to South Africa and surrounding countries. It is stemless, sawtoothed and succulent. They can be propogated by suckers(small plants that grow under the original plant. As they become bigger they peek out from under the larger plant. Leaves are dotted with white textured areas (papillae) and have white marginal "teeth". Tubular reddish-orange flowers appear on tall spikes. Porous soil with adequate drainage. Bright, filtered light with ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Considered somewhat cold tolerant, but best to protect from frost to prevent scarring.
