Aloinopsis malherbei

(This plant comes in a 3.5" 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).

Aloinopsis malherbei is a cryptic perennial-succulent with flat, bluish-gray, fan-like, spatulate leaves similar in shape and texture to Aloinopsis spathulata and Titanopsis calcarea. All these species have blunt tips to their leaves, which are densely covered with prominent white tubercles. Clumps of these plants thus resemble the limestone outcrops amongst which they grow. In the wild, these plants are often overblown by fine soil, only the leaf margins visible.

Blooming season: The flowers are produced from mid-winter until early spring.

Mini plant in a 4" pot

Disappointed in the size of this plant. It was a 2" pot plant in a 4" pot. Beware, bigger size does not mean you will get bigger size.
