Buy Gasteraloe 'Apollo' aloe: A speckled, succulent aloe

  • Position: bright but indirect light
  • Soil: specialist cacti compost
  • Rate of growth: slow
  • Hardiness: tender (indoors only)
  • Current height: approximately cm (+ or - 10% including the pot)
  • Pot cover: choose a 12cm pot cover to give a good fit over the pot

    ‘Apollo’ is an aloe-like succulent with long, rough-textured leaves characterised by white speckling. Being so low-maintenance, Gasteraloe are great house plants for beginners - or anyone with a hectic schedule. They will sometimes produce tubular flowers on extensions that can be up to 50cm long, and in time, they will multiply by creating spreading offshoots at the base of the mother plant.

    Please note that the pot in the photograph is not supplied with the plant (which is sent out in a nursery pot). They do however make excellent potted plants, and if you wish to pot yours up, we do have a wide range of pots on our website to choose from.

  • Home care: Place it in a bright spot and in spring and summer, water when the compost gets dry, but make sure it never sits in excess water for any length of time. In autumn and winter cut back on the watering but do not let it dry out completely. Avoid a humid atmosphere (no bathrooms or steamy kitchens) and in the warmer months, open a window or door occasionally so it can enjoy the fresh air. Repot every year or two into a slightly larger pot using cacti compost.
