Aloinopsis rubrolineata is best known for its attractive appearance. The winter-dormant plant has fleshy green leaves and grows to a height of 12.5 cm. It has its origin in South Africa and belongs to the Aizoaceae family.
Aloinopsis rubrolineata is a one-of-a-kind succulent that blooms in the mid-summer. You will enjoy Golden with red flowers when it blooms.
Watering and Feeding
Remember not to overwater this succulent in the summer when they're resting. During the winter, only water when the soil is completely dried out.
To improve drainage, Aloinopsis rubrolineata plants prefer a porous potting mix.
Aloinopsis will survive mild frost if kept dry. It prefers frost tolerance of – 4°C (24.8° F) and belongs to the hardiness zone of 11.
A sunny location brings out the most vibrant colors. This variety of succulents prefers full sun to partial shade sun exposure and should be protected from overexposure in the summer season.
They reproduce through seed or division. Aloinopsis rubrolineata is vulnerable to red spider mites and root rot.
Aloinopsis rubrolineata will be a lovely addition to your plant collection, especially if it is displayed in a nice pot.

I can't wait for him to grow up to see his shape
Very healthy. Very cute
Will have fun training Aloinopsis rubrolineata as a bonsai by letting the tuberous root fatten up and gradually exposing more of it. Fully grown it will be only 12.5 cm / 5" high so it will be a miniature, shohin bonsai.
It seems to be doing just fine. It arrived very healthy-looking and way larger than I expected.
