Aloe aristata - lace aloe - succulent
Only 133 left
This petite polkadot succulent is so special it's got a brand new family all to itself : it's now an Aristaloe! Each triangular leaf is edged in tiny fearsome-looking teeth like a shark; but it's a pussycat to look after, needing almost no care except an occasional water and an annual feed. In the wild it grows in dry, sandy deserts, high grassland plains, cold mountain slopes, and shady forest clearings - so try it in various places in your home and garden and see where it's happiest. (Probably everywhere!)
