General Care for Aloe Juvenna “Tiger Tooth Aloe”

“Tiger Tooth Aloe” is a fun Aloe that does well in warm and dry climates. It’s very tough and adapts easily to new environments. The “teeth” are spines that form along the leaves’ edges, making the rosette look like a tiger’s jaws.

Watering

“Tiger Tooth 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

Aloe juvenna 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.
