Midnight Aloe Gastrolea Plant (aloe fragilis) – Funky rough textured super dark green leaves form small succulent rosettes of about 1 foot wide by 10-12 inches tall. The texture of these leaves is roughly that of a starfish. Allowed time in the sun leaves will slowly fade more towards a reddish purple coloration. The plant grows well in bright indirect light. Water the plant when the soil is dry.
