Aloe perfoliata is variable in the shape of the leaves and in colour. If this aloe grows in full sun the colour will be blueish and have tightly arranged leaves. If it is planted in the shade it will have a green colour and will have more widely spaced leaves. If you are growing this succulent indoors be sure to place it in a window where it will receive plenty of bright and indirect light. When planting outdoors provide your succulent with light shade especially during the hottest part of the day. Plant your aloe in a well-drained soil that is formulated for succulents. Even though this aloe is tolerant of drought conditions it is only for short periods of time so be sure to water your plant regularly. You can cut back on the watering during the months of winter.
