Aloe plicatilis 4 Inch

Availability: In stock (12)

The Fan Aloe is such an intriguing succulent, the temptation to try to grow it outdoors year-round in the Pacific NW is strong, but alas, it is is hardy to only 20 degrees F, and would not do well in freezing, wet weather. A compromise is to grow this aloe in a container planter that can be moved indoors to a well-lit room during the cold months. In warmer climates, the Fan Aloe can grow from six to eight feet tall and about six feet wide, with its foot-long, strap leaves growing in fan-like clusters. In containers and as an indoor plant, expect this aloe to reach three to six feet in height. As with all succulents, the Fan Aloe needs well-draining soil and lots of light, indoors or out.
