This hybrid aloe tree prefers full sun with water occasionally to infrequently. Can reach 25′. Hardiness reports can tolerate temperatures 23° F. Sometimes confused with but quite different from the yellow orange flowering form of Aloe barberae that comes from Mozambique and is often referred to as the Medusa form of Aloe barberae.  This naturally occurring plant from Mozambique has smaller narrower pale green leaves and much thinner stems. Another plant that is somewhat similar is the hybrid between Aloe barberae and Aloe vaombe called Aloe ‘Goliath’.
