With a name that is British slang for an overly rambunctious child, this variety certainly demands attention! The short, rigid triangular leaves of Aloe ‘Oik’ sport a deep blue-green hue, with bright, multi-pointed magenta teeth along the margins and bumpy dashes along the upper surface of each leaf. Depending on the season and the related strength of the sun’s rays, the fleshy leaves themselves may “blush” nearly red from sun stress, before reverting to green during the less intensely sunny seasons.

Plenty of bright sunlight will not only enrich ‘Oik’s unique color, but will also give this slow-growing plant the best opportunity to reach a mature size of 12 inches tall and wide. Like all Aloe, care must be taken to avoid overwatering – the ‘soak and dry’ method will work well, and porous soil with excellent drainage will provide added protection against rot and other ills. While ‘Oik’ is an overall very hardy plant, take care to protect its leaves from frost during the cooler months, as it is not cold tolerant below Zone 10.

When established, this succulent will send up stalks of reddish-yellow, bell-shaped flowers, which are often visited by 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!

    I love to shop here and highly recommend this company. I’ve learned a lot about different succulents and cacti and my garden is beautiful.

    We received the packaged succulents and had a wonderful time going thru, finding what cool plants were hiding inside. We then transplanted them into two pots gave them a spritz of refreshing water and admired their beauty.

    I really like finding plants that aren’t typically found in my local greenhouses. The plants themselves come so loved, well packaged and ready to be placed.
