The genus Aloinopsis occurs mostly in the Eastern and Western Cape Provinces of South Africa, extending slightly into the southern part of the Northern Cape Province. One species is found in the northeastern corner of the Northern Cape Province. Rainfall is sparse throughout the range. Many species have rough-surfaced, spoon-shaped leaves that grow in small rosettes. The roots are thick and the flowers are often striped with red. Aloinopsis are sometimes confused with Titanopsis, but the genus Titanopsis lack striped flowers. Aloinopsis are popular among collectors. They are winter growers and need plenty of light. Unfortunately, they are prone to red spider mites, mealies, and root rot. The genus is in bad need of taxonomic clarification. Aloinopsis are propagated by seed.
