While it may be common, its identity is a mystery to me. No flowers yet. Any help appreciated. Yale

RE: Identity?

Aloinopsis schooneesii. Enough vowels for you?

Not all that common, a bit of a specialist plant. Should flower at the end of winter if it gets enough light, yellow to orange flowers, quite large compared to the tiny leaves. Full sun, it will grow in the cooler parts of the year and probably be dormant in summer so don't water much in summer and don't be surprised if it doesn't grow at that time. It is highly succulent and has a large taproot so it is very resistant to drought. Always allow to dry out before you water.
