Now with a name like White Beauty, you would expect two things of this particular member of the aloe family, and you won't be disappointed on either count. The rosettes of leathery pointed, but non spiky, leaves are heavily suffused with white blotches, leaving little green visible, and yes, it is a thing of beauty indeed, especially when the tubular bright orange flowers appear on slender stems in spring or summer. Just the thing for the kitchen windowsill. Sunny or bright position. Well drained soil. 6 in. 12 cm pot.

If it's a low maintenance plant you're after, Aloe White Beauty should fit the bill. Water occasionally when the soil becomes dry and then only sparingly, as overwatering can cause the roots to rot. It's a succulent after all, and those flat but thick and rather leathery leaves hold water that can keep the plant going for quite some time. No need for a houseplant sitter if you go on holiday! As for feeding, you can do so with an all purpose plant fertiliser every six to eight weeks from spring to autumn, but it's not a greedy thing.
The natural habitats of the aloe are arid, pretty inhospitable places, so if you are repotting your White Beauty, make sure the compost you use is free draining with lots of grit or smilar material, which will make it feel at home. As new rosettes are formed, you can remove these at the base and pot them up to form new plants.Isn't Mother Nature wonderful?
