I bought this yesterday in a charity shop.When I got it home found it was rotting at the base due to being over-watered.have cut off the affected part and letting it dry off before re-potting.

Is it a Sansevieria of some sort?

Piece I have is about 3" long.

    Looks like it Madpenguin, is it of the Yucca family too.

    Hope you get it to root, look forward to more pics.

    Looks like an Aloe of some kind

    Looks like an aloe to me too.

    Could be Aloe variegata! Thanks everyone.

    Grow it in your kitchen, and have instant treatment there for minor burns and such like.

    It's not the same as Aloe Vera, doesn't treat burns
