Hi all!

I am trying to figure out what kind of Aloe this is? I got it from IKEA and it came in the same pot with a Haworthia Royal Highness, I think?
It is growing a lot of babies right now and I want to repot some of them to give the mother plant some spance, what do you think?

Thanks a lot, R. (Netherlands)

It looks like a lace aloe (Aloe aristata). Very pretty. I agree with you on repotting the babies. They'll all do better if they have some room.

I don't think the plant next to the Haworthia is an aloe plant.  It looks like one I have had though I can't remember the name.

Have you tried looking at other succulents to see if you can ID it? It might be a different variety of Haworthia.

The Haworthia that I had looked like the plant on the right.

The Aloe aristata looks alot like the Haworthia Royal Highness.

So my assumption was that the OP is questioning the plant on the Left which might be one of these:

Haworthia Obtusa

Haworthia planifolia

Or this plant could be something of a different variety.

Haworthia is not an aloe, correct? Which, if you're right Anne, (and I assume you are), then neither of the OP's plants are aloes.

The more I dig into this the more I get confused. I googled Haworthia Royal Highness.

So It looks like the 2nd picture that I posted, the "Source" says it is a cross and not a Haworthia at all:

Gasteraloe 'Royal Highness': A rare intergeneric hybrid of Gasteria x Aloe. It is ornately decorated with a dense smattering of raised white dots. Moderate stress from bright light and drought can induce flushing of orange and red tones. This slow growing, loose rosette makes an excellent indoor plant as it can thrive even in low light."



So I looked up the website that I used for succulents which has 8 pages of different Haworthia, this page has the ones that look like the OP's plant on the right:

https://worldofsucculents.com/page/7/?genera=haworthia

Leigh, so all I can say is maybe if the OP will reply and tell us which plants is the one in question then we might be able to figure this out.
