Torch Plant, Lace Aloe
Synonym: Aloe ellenbergeri, Aloe aristata var. parvifolia, Aloe longiaristata, Aloe aristata var. leiophylla
This small aloe is often cultivated as a house plant. It produces offsets regularly that can be carefully detached and replanted. If the offset has only a few roots, it is better to wait a few days to make sure that all the cuts are dry before replanting it. There is anecdotal evidence that plants kept in smaller pots produce more offsets.
