The unique dashes along the bright green leaves of Aloe hemmingii 'Mosaic Aloe' are the source of its name, lending a remarkable appearance to its relatively flat, star-shaped rosettes. When provided with adequate sun exposure, the teeth and leaf margins will often flush a warm orange, adding to the depth of visual contrast. Reaching up to 10 inches wide, ‘Mosaic Aloe’ makes an excellent ‘filler’ component to any succulent arrangement, especially when planted alongside succulents with deeply hued, single-toned leaves.
An excellent variety for beginners, ‘Mosaic Aloe’ requires very little in order to thrive, and can even tolerate a fair amount of neglect! Bright sunlight is a must in order to retain its most vibrant coloration, as is a porous soil mix within a well-draining pot. Due to the immense quantity of water stored in its thick leaves, care should be taken not to overwater this succulent – a thorough drink only once the soil has completely dried through is an excellent starting point. During the winter months even more infrequent watering is appropriate, as damp and cold soil can predispose the plant to rot. Furthermore, be sure to protect the chubby leaves from frosty temperatures, to avoid permanent scarring to the leaves.
A contented ‘Mosaic Aloe’ will send up red flowers on tall spikes rising from the center of the plant’s rosettes, which are known to attract pollinators such as hummingbirds!

All plants are shipped bare-root with the exception of House Plants and Plant Club Subscription Boxes. House plants and succulents will ship from separate locations and may arrive at different times. Orders ship Monday-Friday each week. Please allow 1-3 business days for your order to be processed. We ship within the USA and its outlying territories ONLY. Read our full policy here.
Plant sizing is based on the diameter of the nursery pot (2", 2.5", 3", 4" etc), not the plant itself. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grow in depending on availability or time of year. While we do our best to ship plants as similar to those pictured as possible, please keep in mind that all plants are unique from one to the next, and display color, shape, and growth variation based on current environment, time of year, and other contributing factors. Please note that we ship our plants as dry as possible in the fall and winter months to prevent root rot or freezing. They will plump back up after planting!
