@lbohlin I do love my babies I found out over time soil is the key to healthy plants. I read up on any plant that comes home with me..each plant has different environments which requires different soil types be it gritty or a little moist etc...so reading for me is what I do and apply it..check out universities website..for holturculture on soil it's free inf step by steps guidelines...thanks for asking take good care of your babies.

It looks exactly like my lace aloe 😀 only a slightly darker shade of green, probably just from different lighting... I'm not sure what causes the brown tips 😕 but once they get completely dried out, I just snip the ends off (without cutting into the part that is still alive & green)

Thanks @aes239 I'll give that a try, it'll make temperature look better.
