Aristaloe aristata "Cosmo Green Pearl", also known as Lace Aloe or Serelei, is a small, compact rosette-forming succulent with attractive dark green leaves marked with rows of white knobbly dots.  The leaf has a sharp, spiny tip and the leaf edges are armed with small saw-tooth spines.
 
In the right conditions, long stems (up to 35cm) will grow to carry many tubular reddish-orange flowers, which are attractive to bees and wasps.

Habitat Conditions

A typical succulent, with a wide range of habitats in its native South Africa - from exposed dry sandy conditions to upland grassland and even forest margins. It is remarkably hardy and can grow outside in milder parts of UK (it is frost hardy to -7C, but needs to be protected from wet conditions, and plants bought as houseplants would need to be gradually hardened off for use outdoors). It is an ideal plant for a sunny windowsill or conservatory. Like most succulents, it requires a period of darkness every day.

Plant Care

Light

Medium-high. Will tolerate direct sunlight. Must have a period of darkness every day.

Watering

Keep the soil on the dry side and water infrequently - however, when you do water, be quite generous.

Pruning

Dead leaves and spent blooms should be cut off with a sharp knife or secateurs. Otherwise, no pruning is necessary

Feeding

A weak solution of fertilizer can be added to the water at each watering.

Pest & Diseases

Generally pest free, but the occasional mealybug might be seen, which can be removed by cleaning the plant with a soft brush (e.g. a paint brush) - don't try and wipe the leaves as the spines can be sharp and may cut your hands and shred your cleaning cloth.
