Aloe

I have a couple of Aloe vera plants. These are quite popular among non-cactus and succulent plant collectors. One particularly large Aloe bloomed once. The flower stalk is not very showy but it was nice all the same. I just keep them because they do not need maintenance except for weeding.

The next plant is either an Aloe or a Haworthia. It was grown in aquaculture for a while so it is quite tall. The roots of the plant is fleshy, and a lot of roots rotted. However, the plant also produces new roots readily, so there is an equilibrium.

This plant grew awfully well in aquaculture. Staking the plant out is a bit of a hassle, but the specimen is very clean and free of damage.
