    I have been trying to identify my aloe plant. I rescued it from a friend a couple of years ago (it was only 6") and it has gotten very tall. The stalk is strong and doesn't need support (yet). It doesn't look like any climbing aloe I have seen photos of as it has spots. Please help!

    @kabs115, I'm so sorry you haven't received any replies as yet, I will move this thread to the Cacti and Succulents forum to see if you get more response. If that is OK with you ?

    Hi, to me it does look like a climbing aloe (Aloiampelos ciliaris). Young aloes, especially grown indoors, are usually more spotted. Mature ones, or those growing in their natural environments (or close to it) will have less spotting if at all. I suggest to give it more light if possible as it does look a bit leggy .
