It's an old pic and the plant is long gone. Like most aloes, this species looks like something you were glad you didn't step on. It's stringier than your typical household sooth-the-burn aloe and far less pretty. A quick Google image search will show you all.

Yup. But I haven't been active for a long time. There are CPs crammed into every corner of the growing space...

They may survive. Had some make it through one or two Michigan winters ... and then there were all the babies ....lots and lots of babies ......

I sometimes get seeds but most often propagate this one from adventitious shoots from the rambling rhizomes.
Want one?
