  1. I have a few of the Aloe striata plants and I didn’t know the name until I just found out today. Mine are turning quite yellow on the bottom leaves. I live in Fresno Ca. where they have been in direct sun in the spring and I water these plants about once a week to 10 days. I rarely watered all winter. They are small enough that they haven’t started to spiral yet so I’m concerned as to why they are so yellow. If you can give me any ideas and solutions I would really appreciate it.
