Aloe Maculata 'Giant Form'.
The Aloe Maculata 'Giant Form'is a very unique evergreen succulent plant. This large perennial is very short stemmed forming a dense rosette of narrow green lance shaped leaves which are thick and fleshy. They are heavily mottled with white linear spots. The gel inside each leaf is used for their medicinal properties by local people in their native country. Each leaf has small white teeth along their margins.
Mature plants can occasionally produce a tall flower spike with long lasting brightly coral coloured tubular shaped flowers, however this is quite rare if kept as a houseplant. Quite variable, it is a hybrid between Aloe Maculata x Aloe Striata.
Very easy to keep and great for growing in pots needing minimal maintenance. Very rare to find offered for sale.
