Aloe Humilis also goes by the name Spider Aloe. This succulent belongs to the Asphodelaceae family and is native to South Africa. Offering a dormancy of summer, the plant can grow 5 inches in height. This dwarf aloe is triangular-shaped.

Growth Rate

This is a slow-growing plant. Do not attempt to fertilize the plant to increase growth. The fertiliser can stagnate growth.

Flowering

From late winter to spring, you will witness orange and yellow coloured Aloe Humilis flowers. These flowers are quite large and showy.

Watering and Feeding

The water requirements of Aloe Humilis depend on the climatic conditions of where you live. If the first bit of your finger goes into the soil easily, it means watering is required. Feed the fertilizer with half-strength fertilizer once a week during the growing season.

Soil

Apart from sandy and well-drained soil, ensure that the soil is never wet. Especially in winter, give good Aloe Humilis care as it cannot tolerate wet soil. If you grow the plant in a pot, place a layer of stones or broken parts to create a solid drainage system.

Hardiness

Aloe Humilis is known to need around 40% humidity since it has a hardiness zone of 9b to 11b. The succulent can withstand temperatures as low are -3.9°C.

Light

The spider aloe prefers full and direct sun. It can survive in partial shade too. Go for a South facing window if you plant the succulent indoors.

Propagation

Use leaf cuttings or offsets for propagation. Make sure that if you are using leaf cuttings, the least is at least 6 inches long.

Keep in mind that the most common reason for the death of this succulent is when it is overwatered. Make sure you do not make the Aloe Humilis suffer from overwatering.
