Care and Propagation Information

General Care for Aloe ‘Twilight Zone’

Aloe ‘Twilight Zone’ was hybridized by Kelly Griffin. Its parentage is Aloe haworthioides and Gasteria carinata, characteristics of which you can see in its leaves and shape. The white spots against the dark green of the leaves are reminiscent of the stars in the introduction of Rod Serling's popular television show, “The Twilight Zone,” for which it is named.

It grows well indoors, but can also make a great addition to a rock garden or small container.


Aloe ‘Twilight Zone’ 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

‘Twilight Zone’ 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.

How to Propagate Aloe ‘Twilight Zone'

Aloe ‘Twilight Zone' can be propagated from offsets. While you may think that you should be able to propagate ‘Twilight Zone' from leaves, this is not the case, and you may find your leaves rotting.
