The plant is characterized by waxy deep green leaves and has a fast growth rate. Growing up to 5 inches in height, the star-shaped Aloe Haworthia is also known as Aloe black gem, Carrion plant, or Starfish flower plant. 

Growth Rate

The Aloe black gem is a low-maintenance plant with a fast growth rate.


The blooming month is July when delicate white flowers grow to make the succulent look even more beautiful.

Watering and Feeding

Aloe Haworthia pentagona needs watering once every fifteen days. Since the leaves store water, the plant should be watered infrequently.


A conventional succulent potting mix works the best for this cacti. The soil mix should be well-drained and aerated so drainage can be improved.


This interesting succulent has a hardiness zone of 9 to 11 and frost tolerance of -5° C (23° F). As the plant is frost-sensitive, it prefers warm temperatures and should be planted indoors in freezing temperatures.


Alworthia Black Gem requires partial shade to full sun exposure. When exposed to the sun for six hours, the leaves start to turn purple.


It is easy to propagate this variety of Aloe from offsets and leaf cuttings.

Aloe Haworthia pentagona grows in a low height clump with the foliage varying from green to purple colors. Looks amazing and is a great gifting item too!
