It is commonly known by the name of Torch, Torch plant or Torches.

They are small succulent plants with a covering habit that do not exceed 20-30 cm in height. The leaves are dark green in colour, grow in a rosette and measure up to 15 cm in length; they have thorns, white tubercles and bristles at the apex.

It usually produces tubular, orange flowers that attract bees with their nectar. They flower in early summer.

Aloe aristata can be used in rock gardens, as a ground cover in dry areas of the garden, in greenhouses or as a house plant in shallow pots.

This plant prefers full sun or very light shade if the climate is very hot. Indoors it should be placed near a window, as it will not grow well if it does not receive adequate light. They are not resistant to frost and it is advisable for them to have a winter rest period of between 7 and 10 ºC.

They like dry, sandy soil as it is ideal for these plants as they need good drainage. Pot transplanting is usually done every year at the beginning of spring.

It is advisable to water moderately, waiting for the soil to dry out between waterings. In winter, watering should be reduced to a minimum or even eliminated if the plants are grown near the sea.

During spring and summer it is advisable to fertilise fortnightly with a mineral fertiliser for cacti.

Their worst enemy is overwatering, which causes root rot and yellowing of the leaves. Prolonged drought will cause the leaves to wilt.

They are propagated quite easily from the offshoots that the plant produces at the base; they are put to root in pots with well-drained and somewhat humid soil in a well-lit location but without direct sunlight.
