General Care for Aloe ferox “Cape Aloe”
Aloe ferox “Cape Aloe” is a great addition to rock gardens or xeriscaped yards. Its flowers attract bees and hummingbirds. The leaves of young plants are fragile and tend to break off easily.
Aloe ferox “Cape Aloe” has typical watering needs for a succulent. It’s best to use the “soak and dry” method, and allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings.
Where to Plant
“Cape Aloe” is not cold hardy, so if you live in a zone that gets colder than 20° F (-6.7° 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).
