Almost cactus like with it's little spikes this lovely variety of succulent is easy to look after. It will produce lots of little babies that you can separate from the main host plant and propagate and make lots of new baby plants. When in the right conditions this little aloe will produce gorgeous orange-red flowers on long stems. Read below for the best conditions for your new little friend.

Light

Bright light, avoiding regular direct sunlight that may burn the leaves, but will enjoy sunbathing every once in a while

Will adjust to less light-but expect slower growth and less flowers

Water

Likes to dry out almost completely in between waterings

Water regularly through the spring-summer growing season 

Water much less in the dormant winter season- once every month should be plenty

Growth

Like most succulents this Aristaloe aristata requires little fertilising. Just once every month or two in the summer with well diluted plant feed.

If the plant feed is too strong this will burn the roots.
