How easy is it care for?

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. All our potted plants come in compostable coir pots.

Caring for your plant

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.
