Care and Propagation Information

General Care for Aristaloe aristata “Lace Aloe”

Aristaloe aristata “Lace Aloe” is the perfect addition to a miniature garden. It grows quickly, with rosettes forming clumps. Watch for pink blossoms in the Summer. Its flowers can attract birds and bees to your garden.

Watering

Aristaloe aristata has typical watering needs for a succulent, but can be sensitive to over-watering. It's best to use the “soak and dry” method, and allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings.

Where to Plant

“Lace Aloe” is not cold hardy, so if you live in a zone that gets colder than 0° F (-17.7° C), it's best to plant this succulent in a container that can be brought indoors. It does well in partial sun to partial shade.

If planting indoors, place in a room that gets a lot of sunlight, such as near a southern-facing window (if you're in the Northern Hemisphere).

How to Propagate Aloe haworthioides “Haworthia-leaved Aloe”

Aristaloe aristata “Lace Aloe” is a prolific propagator, with many offsets sprouting up around the base of the plant. Simply pull these up and allow the offsets to dry for one to two days before replanting.
