It maybe a etiolated tiger tooth aloe? Not sure on id, what does the tag say? And do you plan on changing the soil, it looks way to peaty for the aloe.

Hey Teen,
I too love Aloes, but can't help with an ID.

You found a beauty. Love its color.

Grant might be right about your Aloe being 'tooth,' except yours Aloe could pass for Gold Tooth. I could be wrong.

Whichever Tooth, it's a handsome Aloe. Toni

Thank you for the comments. It is in full sun so it is not etiolated. Also, tiger aloe looks different from mines. The tag says succulent, Like I dont know that. And yes, the soil is very peaty and needs to be changed soon. Why do they use such poor soil choices

Hi, Teen

Saw your request on this ID from the cacti and succulent forum.

I got the same plant from Lowes (at least it looks the same) and it was labeled Aloe zanzibarica. Google and see if this looks like a match.

Oh Whait, I did more reaserch and the correct botanical term is Aloe juvenna Crenda. Many nurseries mistaketly call it Aloe zanzibarica
