Inside aloe

One of the pre-winter tasks that I did get done is bringing the potted succulents indoors. Because of some furniture rearrangement since last winter, there's not the room for these upstairs that there was before.


This means that some of the plants are in strange, temporary places right now. A little of a hassle to walk around, but it gives me a chance to see some of them in a new light -- literally.

Take for instance this aloe. Does anybody happen to know what it is?


Although it's rather gentle, it does have some rough edges to its leaves:


Which is one reason that it still has loads of leaves and webs on it even though it's been indoors for a week or two already.



The leaves are not too bad, but the ash seeds...


...are so difficult to grasp and get out!

Still, the sunlight highlights this plant so well, I thought I should give it my best effort.

Before:


After:


Now I can just enjoy this beauty as I try to avoid it when going to my desk.

I need to find a better spot for it, that's for sure!

There are so many hybrid dwarf aloes, it's all but impossible to ID them. I have an aloe called 'White Stag' that looks similar to yours but I don't think they're the same.

Almost seems like a maculata grown in a cold-winter climate. The small spotted ones are extremely difficult to ID.

Thanks for trying. I'll just enjoy this one as the pot is crammed full and pretty happy looking. I think I'll remove some of the pups this winter too...
