Aloe brevifolia is very similar to Aloe aristata, but it freezes at -6 ° C. Also, its succulent leaves grouped in rosettes have the limb entirely green, without any white marks.
Identify my short-leaved aloe
is a succulent with shallow roots, it never loses it leaves, and it grows in small groups or even colonies, because of it’s skill at putting out suckers. The stem is a short, woody base that holds alternating, distichous leaves, set into each other. This is most common for young plants, as they age into rosettes.
Plant my short-leaved aloe
Typically a mild climate plant, aloe vera adapts especially well to the interiors of our homes and apartments. It develops well between temperatures of 18-22°C (slightly cooler in winter, if possible), and it needs light. Be careful nonetheless. Avoid placing the plant directly behind a window with too much sun exposure! It is possible to keep your aloe vera outdoors, in partial shade, if the temperatures in your area don’t dip below -6°C. Otherwise, keep it inside!
