Aloe hybrids – ‘Key Lime’

Key Lime is a newer Kelly Griffin/Altman Plants hybrid sold under the “Star Aloe” label. I feel like I say “it’s a nice little plant” a lot, but…it’s true lol 🤷‍♀️ All the hybrids are nice little plants, and I really enjoy figuring out all the details that make them different from one another, and trying different growing conditions to see how they change. Here are some photos showing examples of that.

My plant when I first got it.

A little thirsty
Oops, cooked too much…very thirsty.
But it bounced back easy, now it’s nice and plump again. Waiting for some cooler weather to bring out more color.
Colorful pup
Bloomstalk and back of leaves, different plant. I have a couple newer ones like this that so far have more upright leaves. The teeth are a bit different too, I think I’ll keep one to see how it changes.

Buds…these are really vibrant, so much brighter than a lot of my other hybrid flowers.
Kinda out of focus, but still shows the nice color.

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”.
