The Short Leaved Aloe is a succulent perennial forming a mat of rosettes. The Leaves are short and quite fat with soft, harmless, white teeth. The plant has a distinctive colour as this is a grey-blue. Tubular shaped red flowers 4cm long are carried in long stems.
Short Leaved Aloes need bright lighting and a well-drained soil which prevents the roots rotting. Their leaves are designed to store water and so they are tolerant of occasional drying out, but this should be avoided if possible. They prefer to be watered as the soil dries out, but before they are completely dry. Unless the terrarium is set up with a deep, bio-active substrate then plants is a dry terrarium are best kept in their pot, which is then disguised with substrate and decor. This allows the plants to be watered as necessary without making the whole substrate too damp.
