Aloe Juvenna, or Tiger Tooth Aloe, is a small succulent native to Kenya that grows upright stem up to 12 inches (30 cm) tall and starts branching from the base of the stem. The plant sports bright green leaves which turn red or brown when received plenty of sunlight. These leaves have toothy margins (hence the name 'Tiger Tooth Aloe') and creamy white spots all over. As the plant grows, the leaves are stacked on top of each other creating a unique structure. It produces salmon pink or orange red flowers with green tips from an inflorescence of up to 10 inches (25 cm).
Sun exposure: Full sun to Light shade
Soil: Porous and well-drained potting mix
Water: Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch, then let drain completely. Reduce watering to a minimum in winter.
Temperatures: Aloe Juvenna prefers warm temperatures from 70 to 80 °F (21 to 27 °C), but can survive temperatures as low as 40 °F (4.5 °C). Protect from frost.
Fertilizer: Feed with a cactus fertilizer in the summer only.
Hardiness: USDA Hardiness Zone 9a to 11b: from 20 °F (−6.7 °C) to 50 °F (10 °C).

Here is our blog about the shipping process and packaging
We do not ship outside of the continental United States.
We only ship out beautiful, healthy plants! Please track your package and open it immediately upon arrival. If you receive your package and are not satisfied, please message us immediately. Fragile plants such as bearpaw, baby toe, etc. may break or loose a few of their leaves during transport. Please contact us for replacements if your plants are severely damaged. We'll try our best to accommodate you.
Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year. Sedums such as Cherry Tart and Lime Zinger are dormant in the winter, i.e. they wilt, start dropping leaves, and look dead. It's simply a survival mechanism that help succulents stay alive over the cold winter and gear up for warmer days ahead.
Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Bright, filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Never let your succulents sit in water. Do NOT water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour off any excess water after a few minutes.
The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.
