Aloe cameronii Mt. Zembe Family: Xanthorrhoeaceae. A beautiful rarely seen form of this species. Originally collected by a friend of mine (legally!) this variety is from Mt. Zembe, Mozambique and differs from the normal A. cameronii in having much darker and redder leaves (when in full sun) and more spacing between the leaves. This spacing shows off the most interesting part of the plant, the petioles or leaf sheathes of the plant which are a beautiful mix of red and white. Like the regular A. cameronii this plant has stiff long toothed leaves and clumps readily. Leaves can be a foot long or more. Easy to grow. In frost free regions it makes a great landscape plant. But it makes an equally good larger potted plant.
Plant has best color in high light. Will turn greenish in lower light. If your plant is greenish on arrival then give it good light and it will become deep red. Takes regular succulent care. Protect from frost.
Please note: This plant will is a challenge to ship due to the long stiff leaves. I will do my best to pack it carefully but it is possible some leaves may break.
You will receive the plant shown in the first three images. The last two images show what it will look like fully colored up. Plant shown in a 6" pot and is approximately 12" tall x 18" wide with several pups forming at the base.
Important Shipping Information

- Immediate Payment (eBay only) Sorry! I can no longer offer a delayed purchase option as the multichannel inventory management system I have started using requires this setting.

I used to have a way to delay shipping but can no longer do this for the same reason as #2 above. Feel free to message me before buying to see if we can figure something out here, no promises though.
