Jim, In these here parts Aloe dichotoma gows and blooms during the winter, thus the need for a frostless environment, and then shuts down for the summer, during which time extreme heat and humidity can be fatal. It's a cool season grower like many bulbs. If you're going to put it outside during an Indiana summer, how humid is it? My in-laws say August is beastly out there.

When should I transplant/repot these? Bulbs transplant best, usually, when they are just about ready to come out of dormancy. These Aloe plants will be grown dry over winter in the greenhouse, so should I wait until spring before disturbing them?
