General Care for Aloe ‘Christmas Carol'
Aloe ‘Christmas Carol' grows slowly compared to other succulents, and does not get very large, but is a great addition to your succulent garden!
Aloe ‘Christmas Carol' tends to need a bit less water than other succulents. It's best to use the “soak and dry” method, and allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings.
Where to Plant
‘Christmas Carol' is not cold hardy, so if you live in a zone that gets colder than 30° F (-1.1° C), it's best to plant this succulent in a container that can be brought indoors. It does well in full to partial sun.
Plant in an area of your garden that gets 6 hours of sunlight a day. 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 ‘Christmas Carol'
Aloe ‘Christmas Carol' can propagated by offsets. While you may think that you should be able to propagate ‘Christmas Carol' from leaves, this is not the case, and you may find your leaves rotting.
Aloe ‘Christmas Carol' will produce small 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.
