Aloe striata Plants
Aloe striata , the Coral Aloe, is a spineless blue-grey-green succulent known for its striped (striated) wide leaves and coral flowers. Aloe striata leaves are not toothed, but have a smooth pink edges, which sometimes appear nearly transparent. It grows throughout southern parts of the Cape in South Africa, on rocky slopes in coastal or arid scrub areas. Though often sold as a solitary plant, Aloe striata will slowly produce new rosettes at the base to form a cluster.
In hot full sun (see habitat photo to the left) Aloe striata leaves turn more pink colored, while in relative shade, the leaves are more blue-green. This plant will produce fuller, more plump leaves with regular watering, and it is also very drought resistant.
The Coral Aloe can handle full sun or part shade, and likes very well-drained soil. It is cold-tolerant to 20 to 25 degrees F. You can us it in a group planting, or as a solitary specimen in the ground, and it also grows well in a large container.
Aloe striata flowers appear in late winter to early spring, with tall stems that produce coral-red colored flower clusters.

WHAT IS CAUDEX SIZE?
You’ll notice we list and price cycads by their caudex size (diameter in inches). The caudex is a cycad’s woody, bulblike trunk. Caudex diameter is a good measure of a cycad's age. The chart below can give you a rough idea of how this translates to pot size.
