Tiger aloe has the same requirements as other succulent aloes. The plant is suited for warmer zones and may be taken outside in summer in cooler areas. Don’t forget to bring it in when cold temperatures are approaching, as the plant is only hardy in USDA zones 9 to 11. The majority of gardeners will find it easier to grow the plant inside alone in a container or as part of a succulent display. Water deeply but rarely and let the soil dry out between watering. The plant grows slowly but should be repotted every three years in a good mix of potting soil and sand or cactus mix. The biggest problem that occurs with aloe plants is overwatering, which can cause the plant to rot.
