What does a Socotra Aloes plant look like?

The Socotra Aloe is a creeping species that has large rosettes with long, often recurved leaves edged with triangular teeth. The leaves are a bright green colour with white specks. When in flower, these tubular red to orange flowers with a greenish tip are present on long thin stems.

How do you care for the Socotra Aloe plant?

Socotra 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.
