Not an Aloe...
by: Jacki

The reason you haven't had any success identifying it is because it's not an Aloe. It's a closely related plant called Haworthia.

Although they don't need as much light as Aloe species, this one is not getting enough - I can tell by the pale center of the plant. Give it a bit more light, such as from a grow light, but don't put it in full sunlight as it will burn.

Hope that helps with your search.

Perhaps Sempervivum
by: Jacky Grundling

I may be wrong but it looks more like a Sempervivum to me?

There is no way this is a Sempervivum. I stand by my original identification, in fact this is the closest that I've found, but it could be something else very similar.

It is an Aloe
by: Stef

Looks to me like an Aloe aristata lacking sunlight.

Return to Haworthia.
