This member of the
Aizoaceae family was given this name by Martin Heinrich Gustav Schwantes in 1926. It is found in
Southern South Africa, growing in wintertime in grit with some water and
some sun. The tubes will get four centimetres thick, the hole plant
will only rice to ten centimetres. The flowers are pale pink with red
stripes. It can be reproduced both by seeds, leaves and cuttings.
The genera name means 'looking
like Aloe' - although I fail to see that! The genera name because
the leaves sits in a rosette.
This is a
winter-grower like the other Aloinopsis'.
