Aloe Vera (aka aka Aloe)

  • Location:

    I am from various parts of North Africa, although I have naturalised in many other areas of the world.
  • Looks:

    I am fleshy and chunky and often bright green in colour and sometimes flowering.
  • Height:

    I can grow to 30cm or more depending on how happy I am.
  • Environment:

    I prefer dry conditions, which means I need hardly any care.
  • Flowers:

    My flowers are quite surprising, like firecrackers on tall stems, often produced in the summer.
  • Grooming:

    If I'm too wet I can turn a little yellow. Simply reduce watering to keep me happy.
  • Life Span:

    I can last many years, but will fair better if you remove my offspring and repot me from time to time.
  • Feeding:

    I don't need much watering, but don't let me dry out completely.
  • Fact:

    I produce pups very easily so feel free to break these off and pot them up for a friend.
