|CHECK Dormancy Table to SEE WHAT'S GROWING & WHAT'S DORMANT
We remove some of the soil when we ship. There are usually no issues with a plant out of soil or kept dry for a week or more. When you receive your plants, put them into a pot with moist soil. Give the roots opportunity to reachdown for water. Please check to see if your plants should be watered at the time of year you purchase. Some don't get a lot of water in winter and some not a lot of water in summer. How often you water depends on how quickly your soil dries out. Most important, don't overwater. Water well and allow your plants to dry out. The photos on our website represent what plants look like when growing. We are not selling the plant in the photo. Whether your plant has flowers depends on whether it is flowering at that time. A pot may be one large plant or more than one plant. Plants grow at a different pace and different sizes so if you order 2 plants coming out of the same size pot, they may not be the same size.
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.
