If you are looking for a green sculptural masterpiece that is waterwise and indigenous, then the Fan Aloe might just be it.

These beauties grow in a relatively small area, from Franschoek to Grabouw, in the Western Cape. As a mature plant, they form graceful 3-5meter trees with forked stems that end in curious fan-line foliage arrangements.

They'll be happy as a potted house plant if you give it a sunny yet well aerated (breezy) spot. Make sure the soil is well draining, and that the plant doesn't sit in water.

Place your beauty as an accent plant as a table centerpiece or on a windowsill.
