Please help me to identify this Aloe species. Unfortunately I have dropped the container and that's why the plant lost a few leaves and therefore, its symmetry.
I can't be sure from the picture, but does your plant grow its leaves in a circle/spiral or do they alternate opposite? If they alternate opposite (not in a circle or spiral), it's not Aloe vera/Aloe barbadensis.– Tim NevinsSep 14, 2018 at 19:56
I don't remember how the leaves were. Since then I gave it to somebody else and lost track of it. But thanks for the tip, it sure is useful for the next plants.– AlinaSep 15, 2018 at 14:47
Possibly Aloe vera var. chinensis. There's a photo here: http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/showimage/272091/#b
Thank you very much. I have used your answer to search more on the web and I found on wikipedia that Aloe vera var. chinensis looks somewhat similar to Aloe massawana, which is very interesting.– AlinaNov 27, 2016 at 17:59
I think that the Aloe vera var. Chinensis is smaller leaved, and has white spots on the top of the leaves, and Aloe massawana has wider, and darker leaves, without spots.
