This is where it begins...
From the "furry" Aloe Haworthioides.
I'm sure if it were outdoors there would be lots of attention paid to it by the critters. Then again if it were outdoors it would be dead (only hardy to 25F, which technically my garden hasn't seen - but I'm thinking 27 is close enough).
It was a gift from the Outlaw, here it is in August of 2012. It's a little smaller now, sadly that happens with some of my succulents.
The stats on this cute little guy...
- all the usual succulent needs...sun, good drainage, likes heat
- hardy to 25F/USDA Zone 9b
- native of Madagascar where "It grows in quartz in cracks in the rocks or in cushion of Fimbristylis (a small colonist plant growing after lichens and mosses that produce a black neutral or acidic humus carpet, this becomes completely desiccated in the dry season)." (source)
You know that I want to know about your favorites (in the house OR in the garden) but I'm also willing to wait until next Friday the 26th, when you'll hopefully tell us all about them in the "favorites" monthly wrap up.
