Description

Aloe pirottae is a stemless or very short stemmed maculate aloe. Aggressively suckering it forms small groups with shiny, brittle, long, narrowish leaves of pale green and very heavily spotted. The leaves form a rosette. The many branched inflorescences are covered with upright, bright yellow flowers near the end of branches. It is a very attractive species, but rare in cultivation.

Blade dark green with many white elongated dots and dashes, 45 to 90 cm long and 6.5-13 cm wide. The leaf surface is smooth.

Environment

Aloe pirottae is one of the most ornamental aloes that is a fast-growing species that can reach full size in 5 or 6 years (if given proper growing conditions), this plant is a water-wise plant.
It should be given a well-drained soil with a high lime content. The plant grows well in a pot too, and can be moved indoors for the winter
Outside, if the climate is cool it enjoys full sun. In warmer country, keep it cool by filtering the afternoon sun, and also avoid using a dark-coloured container.

Landscape Uses

Makes an attractive landscape plant and or container patio plant where some height is needed, being an attractive accent plant. This columnar tall cactus is suitable for large landscape and can grow outdoors in those areas where there is light frost in winter and the rainfall is not too high.

Most succulents need to be watered twice a week during summers and only once in monsoon & winters. Varieties like Haworthias, Crassulas and Gasterias are well suited for low-light indoors and window-sills. If the leaves get too bulky, it is a sign of overwatering & if the leaves look shrivelled it is a sign of less watering.

As a general rule of thumb, all the ones with colourful leaves like Echeverias, Sedeveria and Graptopetalum like bright sunlight and semi shade in extreme summers. They cannot be kept indoors or in full shade. All succulents love morning sun.

You can fertilise your succulent once a month.

Watering tips : Make sure NOT to water on the plant itself. Water directly in the soil. You can use a cup or a glass to make sure the water does not spray on leaves. When watering, make sure water comes out of the drainage hole.
