aloe id help needed

Post by Oleg » Fri May 03, 2019 1:52 pm

Greetings to all aloe lovers,
Today I've purchased a small plant being unable to choose between a. marlotti and a. ferox as an identification try. Could anyone help with the name, please?

Most probably Aloe Aculeata.

Doesn't look right for aculeata, probably ferox or marlothii. Aculeata has white bases to the spines.
