Beautiful thick stacks of elaborately jewel-like work "inlaid" leaves. The silver of the dark striated thick leaf centers are quite ornately dotted platinum, each thick gray green leaf is also mottled beneath--indicative of its Aloe parent; the whorled hard surfaced upreaching habit suggests the Astroloba bloodline. Very beautiful unique addition to your rare succulent collection, tolerating low humidity situations.
|Cultural Code||TGH HP|
Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.
If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.×
