It is flowering, may we get a positive ID? And what happened to those brown leaf tips?
Thanks a lot.
It's an Aloe of some kind. I don't know abt the damage, could be sunburn or mechanical? Just guessing.
Congratulations on the bloom, good for you! Did you manage that indoors? If so, I'm jealous.
I say it's a Gasteraloe, but I don't know which one.
Yes, indoor only. It sits on a southern windowsill. Not mechanical damage as I have it for almost one year now.
Chlorine, chloramine or fluoride in city water can do that.
Yes city water can be horrible for plants, i spoil my plants way to much and buy only purified water
Yes, xGasteraloe (cross between Gasteria & Aloe aristata). Maybe one named 'Cosmo'.
I have an Aloe 'Flow' that looks very similar to that... but I agree. It's some sort of Aloe/gasteraloe hybrd of some sort.
I have one of these and it is refered to as a Zebra Plant (Haworthia fasciata variegata) It's a winter grower and is dormmant in summer. I have one but it is much smaller and had not bloomed yet.
thanks all. by compare the pictures on the net and this link. I got it from home depot too. I think it is xGasteraloe 'Cosmo'. Thanks
Here is a link that might be useful: same plant
Sorry Kristy, that's not a Haworthia (of which I grow several). It's Aloe or GasterAloe, the bloom is wrong for Haworthias.
