Aloe Vera ‘Piranha’ is one psychedelic looking plant! Part of the ‘Fish Series’ by Larry Wisel, it has lumps, bumps and spikes decorating each fleshy leaf. The leaves are mid to dark green with cream and pink bumps.
Aloe Vera ‘Piranha’ makes a great house, office or patio plant. It is so easy to care for in a pot. Just choose a good quality potting mix and the container of your choice. You will only need to water them in, then as the potting mix dries out.
You can also plant Aloe Vera ‘Piranha’ in the garden. Choose a part shade spot with well drained soil. It is frost sensitive so it is better in a pot in cool climates.
For hundreds of years, Aloe Vera has been used as a healing plant, the sap is used for treatment of skin conditions such as sun burn.
Aloe Vera plants come in a 7.5cm pot and are around 5cm across.
