Aloe Arborescens, commonly known as ‘Krantz Aloe’, can reach up to the height of 6.6–9.8 feet. It is an eye-catching plant because of its sheer size, sword-shaped and sprawling habit, which is unusual for a flowering succulent. The summer-dormant plant is drought-tolerant, making it ideal for xeriscape landscaping. Krantz Aloe has its origin in Africa and belongs to the Asphodelaceae family.

Growth Rate

Aloe arborescens has a slow growth rate.

Flowering

This plant blooms in March-May and produces beautiful Yellow or scarlet flowers.

Watering and Feeding

Allow the soil to dry out between watering when irrigating during the growing season. If there is no precipitation in the winter, water is only enough to keep the soil moist. If there is no rain in the spring, gradually resume watering. Krantz aloe plants do not need much fertilizer.

Soil

Excellent drainage is essential, which can only be provided by light, sandy, or medium loamy soil. Aloe arborescens plant can grow in nutritionally deficient rocky soil, just as it does in its natural habitat.

Hardiness

This variety of Aloe can tolerate moderate frost. It has a frost tolerance of -4° C (25° F) and belongs to the hardiness zone of 9 to 11.

Light

Krantz aloe plants are best suited to locations with partial shade sun exposure. The color of the leaves varies according to the amount of sunlight received by the plant, ranging from dull green to yellow-green or bluish-green.

Propagation

Rather than growing this succulent from seeds, which is time-consuming and difficult, the easiest and most successful propagation methods are suckers or shoots called pups, or stem or branch cuttings.

Aloe Arborescens is a low-maintenance plant. Because Krantz aloe has spines or sharp edges, make sure to wear sturdy, long leather gloves while taking care of it.
