Aloe ID

toddinsoutherncal(zone 10)March 11, 2006

Hey all- I got this plant from a friend who moved away (along with some other nice ones) and would like a name for it. I'm not great naming aloes, so any help would be appreciated. It looks a little like A. Jucunda to me except this is in a 10" pot. Possibly a hybrid?

Thanks

Looks a lot like Aloe dorotheae - if not the species then at least a hybrid of dorotheae...

Todd and Peyton, you both have beautiful plants, and I love the waxy look and color shading in the older one.

Here's my Aloe dorothea. It's bright, shiney green while it's cold and wet. Once summer kicks in, it turns a bright, shiney coppery. Some of the stems of this plant are now over three feet long. I have another plant that looks superficially similar that is labelled Aloe congolense. It is a smaller plant and the leaves are shorter and wider in relation to the plant. Also, I don't think it has the spots.
