Aloe suprafoliata

1st March 2015

A tough species from North-eastern South Africa and Swaziland. As a young plant the leaves grow stacked on eachother in two ranks but as the plant matures it develops a more typical rounded rosette. Mine seems to have bypassed the juvenile distichous perfection in favour of a more rounded approach, which raises a questioin about its identity that I will overlook for the moment.
Mine was a small seedling two years ago in a two inch pot, and now it fills a fifteen litre bucket so there is something about the Agave house that it likes.
