Tiger Aloe

$10

Gonialoe variegata, aka Tiger Aloe or Partridge-Breasted Aloe, is a species of flowering plant in the family Asphodelaceae. The arrangement of the leaves provides an interesting tidbit of tiger aloe information, where they are generally produced in three sets of six to eight leaves around a central rosette. The slightly serrated edges and thick waxy coated foliage sport mottled white and green patterns.

They enjoy some direct sun, but they'll also do well in bright, indirect light. It is best to place this plant somewhere where it will receive some nice morning sun, or a couple hours of afternoon sun, and then indirect light the rest of the day.
They will do best in bright light. A nice bright place inside your home would be on the window sill or a stool that is right next to a window, either with or without blinds, depending on if the plant can handle sun. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.
They like the soil to be completely dry before the next watering. This can take up to 4 weeks in an average home environment but it will vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions. For them, it's always safer to underwater or water when you see signs of lack of water (i.e. wrinkly or soft leaves), and then water deeply. Water a little more often in the warmer months.
Their humidity requirement is low, so do not mist them or put them in a terrarium.
Aloes are drought-tolerant and prefer to be under-watered. Not sure when to water? Wrinkles on the aloe’s fleshy leaves are a telltale sign.

The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.
As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.
