Aloe wickensii Tweekleur-aalwyn

(This plant comes in a 3.5 inch pot. You will receive a very similar plant to the one in the picture. It may or may not be blooming at the time of your purchase. The plant is shipped in its pot to prevent any damage to the roots).

Aloe wickensii also goes by the name Tweekleur-Aalwyn. With its origin in South Africa, the plant belongs to the Asphodelaceae family and can grow up to a height of  2-3 inches. This tubular-shaped succulent offers a dormancy in winter. 

Growth Rate

This slow-growing plant takes about 3 to 4 years to reach its maximum height provided ideal aloe wickensii care is given. 


You will see the flowers blooming during the mid-winters, usually between July and August. These flowers will be reddish-yellow in color.

Watering and Feeding

If you want the plant to flower profusely, water frequently in the summer and do not water at all in winter. Find a fertilizer formulated for cacti and feed once or twice in the growing season. 


Since the plant is originally grown on rocky slopes with little or no grass, thin soil is ideal. Use loamy sand soil with chips at the bottom of the containers. 


Tweekleur-Aalwyn has a hardiness zone of 9b to 10. While it can stand light frost, it may be damaged in hard freezes. Keep in mind the aloe wickensii cold tolerance of -2° C


Full sun with ample bright light is a good idea. If you succeed in providing it with partial shade, you will enjoy a healthier-looking succulent. 


Use the offshoots that develop around the outside of the rosette for propagation. Let the cutting dry out for at least a week before you plant it in soil. Additionally, you can also use seeds for propagating.

Instead of only using Aloe wickensii as a home plant, you can also take advantage of the succulent as a source of dye. The roots of the plant dye wool red-brown to purplish-red.
