Aloe Tiger Tooth (Aloe Juvenna) is a miniature succulent with a fascinating look. It carries the bright-green color that is associated with aloes but is embedded with peculiar white spots. Aloe Juvenna grows spiked leaves often described as small teeth that stack and form an interesting rosette. The spikes may look sharp and resemble a Tiger’s jaw but they will not prick when touched.
Collectively, the small rosettes give the plant a fuzzy appearance when viewed from a distance. When Aloe juvenna is given enough exposure to the sun in the summer months, the bright-green leaves assume a reddish-brown color. Tiger Tooth Aloe is the popular alias assigned to Aloe juvenna because of its spiky leaves. It can grow up to 12-inches (30.5cm) tall and 24-inches (61cm) wide which makes the succulent an ideal ground cover.
Aloe juvenna is a resilient succulent that can grow properly in both warm and dry climates. It is not a cold-hardy plant. If the temperature drop below 20° F (-6.7° C), it would be best to grow the plant indoors.
