Aloe antandroi - a second look

Post Number:#1  Postby Stone Jaguar » Tue Jan 02, 2018 12:44 pm

A nice-looking (if spidery), short-statured Malagasy aloe that seems to thrive as a pot plant in the SF Bay Area climate. Quite fast-growing. Geoff’s experience with this species, based on his comments and photos in the Gallery, suggest he doesn’t much care for it. The leaves do break off with the lightest pressure...I’ve accidentally knocked a number of them off the largest stem on this plant. Seems to require very bright conditions to stay upright and compact.

Plant flowering today at 12”/30 cm tall.

A wispy thing. Maybe might stand out as a trailing/hanging plant? I wonder Jay,if you tried growing like a Huperzia..that is, upside down?
