Aloe ‘Ice Cap’

A very small aloe hybrid that will do best in a small container. The off-white flower buds open into pure white flowers – a unique feature. The plant has light green leaves with regular and prominent pinkish spines on the edges. Plants start flowering from an early age, and by the time it is mature – about 20 cm in diameter – it can produce 4 consecutive inflorescences that will adorn the little plant from early summer to midwinter or even longer.

The larger inflorescences can be branched, providing an even better flowering display. It is well worth cultivating and is easy to grow. Better flower displays can be achieved by regularly proving the plant with a fresh, humus rich soil, every 2 years or so. (see Aloe Care)
