They are great tweathers! I hope yours don't mine but I added a pic. I've been trying to ID. I thought it might be a aloe rauhii but the leaves seem too thin, so I started leaning towards aloe albiflora but I don't think It's that either. I don't surpose you would be able to ID it?

Definitely not albiflora. Albi means white and flora means flower, so it would need to have white flowers. I'm guessing 'Blimey Limey'.

Nice Aloe collection, tweathers! =)

Misselle, could be Aloe bakeri, or a hybrid with that & Aloe albiflora or Aloe bellatula. I don't think 'Blimey Limey' leaves grow that long. Would be great to see the blooms when they open. Not sure if any of these have the habit of growing a stem.

If you bought that at wal mart it's a aloe carmine hybrid it looks a lot like mine it has really thin leaves with red stripes down the teeth I'll put a pic of mine although mine is a lot bigger it still looks a lot like it

None of my plants have bloomed this year makes me sad but I did just get them this year so maybe that's why?

Here's my blimey limey for comparison.

Those leaves look long enough, Nil! =) Still, your plant's leaves look a darker green than Misselle's plant.

Definitely not 'Carmine', though.

Yeah but mine get blasted with LA sun. Yellow summer bloom is what I'm going on.

Thanks everyone! Nil, it does look a lot like your blimey limey. Yes the colouration is different, however i'm in Australia, so that could explain it :-) I got to the point yesterday where I threw my hands up and declaired it a hybrid lol. I think the flowers will be very telling, I have to admit I'm getting impatient though, they have been like that for weeks! Thanks again everyone, I'll be sure to post pics when the big day finally comes!
