Haworthia Pentagona also known as or Alworthia or Aloe Black Gem
It has waxy, dark green leaves that can darken to purple with increased sun exposure. They grow smaller than other aloes, and so are ideal for container gardening.
It is also known as Alworthia Black Gem. This evergreen, perennial succulent generates many tight offsets, creating a large low clump. The foliage varies from green through to dark reddish-bronze purple with the thick, triangular-conical, succulent leaves becoming darker and redder the more sun it gets.
Aloe is a very forgiving plant, and a well-grown plant can be quite beautiful. As with all succulents, it's essential that Aloe is never allowed to sit in stagnant water. Prefers warmer temperatures of 70ºF/21ºC to 80ºF/27ºC but will survive down to 40ºF/4.5ºC. A well-drained potting mix is essential. Suspend feeding in the winter as the plant goes dormant.
