Aloe "Mountain Flower" is a lovely variety of aloe that grows in an unsual stacked pattern that circles the stem, bringing a rough spot to a room that can contrast well with softer tones.
While small, this plant retains a spinier growth style on its large flat leaves that dissuades animals from grazing on it. As it matures, it will grow a trunk and begin to flower in the winter with a number of flat yellow flowers that grow up and then horizontally from the center.
Propagate easily by removing one of the pups from its base when the pup is large enough to have true leaves and re-plant.
Lighting: Bright direct.
Water: Allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings, and make sure water drains all the way through the soil as standing water will harm the roots.
Soil/Potting: Plant in a rich, organic soil in a container with a drainage hole and made of slightly porous material like ceramic. Repot annually or when plant exhibits discoloration without the presence of any mis-watering habits.
Fertilize: Monthly with bacterial inoculant recomended for steady growth and to promote flowering
Temperature: Does best in hot or warm climates.
Toxicity: Unsafe for consumption by humans or pets.
