This plant was purchased about a month ago at a bazaar. It has thick leaves with pale green spot-like patterns on both sides. Its height is only about 7 to 8 centimeters (or 3 inches).

I live in Singapore which has a tropical weather: hot, humid with occasional showers all year round. I put the plant out for the morning sun everyday and feed it a small amount of water once a week.

This is an Aloe variegata from Namibia and South Africa. This plant can be difficult to grow in a tropical climate. Robyn

Aloe variegata
by: Ronaele

Aloe variegata. I have been growing several of these lovely Aloes outdoors for the past 5 years, planted in the ground in my Victoria, B.C. garden in a well draining, raised rockery. They are in a sheltered spot, facing east but are not artificially protected from the weather. Aloe aristata (aka century plant) is also hardy in my garden and blooms beautifully every spring.

I think that is a gasteria.

Yay! Finally an ID for my plant
by: Janeen

I bought one just like it a week ago and the sticker on the pot said Haworthia. I’m new to succulents so I bought it because that’s what I was shopping for. Well, well none of the pictures of haworthias looked like it so I went on a search quest. Thank you for a definite ID. I can stop racking my brain now 🙂
