Depending on where it is grown, “Mitre Aloe” can have many different appearances. When it is stressed in full sun, the leaves can turn red.
“Mitre 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.
