Aloe marlothii, commonly known as mountain aloe, is a large tree-like succulent aloe plant in the Asphodelaceae family. Aloe marlothii is native to South Africa where it is found growing in mountain ranges. The main stem of the plant grows between 6 to 10 feet tall. Each leaf measures 1 to 4 feet long and about 10 inches wide with a grayish green epidermis and brown fleshy spines on their margin. Aloe marlothii has a rosette growth pattern and is usually singular. A. marlothii blooms in the winter with many small bright red, orange, and yellow flowers that congregate together in the shape of a cone. This species is commonly grown as an ornamental plant for its large leaf and flower size. Aloe marlothii grows best in well draining sandy soil, sitting in full sun to partial shade. Water the plant adequately during summer and sparingly during winter. Allow the soil to completely dry out in between waterings. USDA plant hardiness zones 9a to 11b.

Aloe marlothii seeds require consistent moisture and humidity to germinate, but the soil should not remain soaking wet. Cloning boxes, ziplock bags, and other containers that retain humidity are ideal to store sown pots. Use a well-draining sterilized soil mix. Seeds should be sown directly on top of the potting mixture and lightly covered with a thin layer of sand or potting mix, just enough to cover the seeds. Germinating pots should be kept indoors, out of extreme light and heat. Ideal germination temperatures range from 75°F to 85°F. Germination typically takes 2 to 5 weeks to occur. Even with optimal conditions, germination may be slow and sporadic.
