Aloe micracantha is the only gras Aloe that occurs naturally amongst fynbos vegetation. The distribution is in the Eastern Cape Province where the plants are found between Uniondale in the west and Grahamstown in the east.
The species name "micracantha" refers to the minute teeth on the margins of the leaves, although some other Aloes even have smaller teeth.
Aloe micracantha flowers from November to February and the flower colour is red, salmon-pink or orange.
The plants do not transplant well and should be grown from seed. Aloe micracantha prefers a well drained sandy soil.
