Aloe ‘California’

Closeup

Some good info on this variety – https://www.agaveville.org/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=789

I first bought this plant in an overcrowded clump back in 2016. It’s a pretty easy variety, though gets kinda fungus-y with the rain and humidity here. Likes full sun. Often misIDed as vera or ‘Blue Elf’. Here’s a few photos of my plants.

Thirsty and a little etiolated
The tall growth probably leads this to be misIDed as a “climbing aloe” pretty often, too. But Aloiampelos species don’t have spots and their teeth/growth habits are a bit different.
Kinda fungus-y…been a wet summer! The skinny plant in the pot with these is a different variety

I live in Houston, Texas and have been interested in and collecting Aloe plants since 2008, my first Aloe was the “chinensis” variety that I got from my mom in 2006. I am autistic and an English major. Aloes are my “special interest”.
