This doses not happen too often.. It's only the second time I've seen the Aloe Plant bloom. Might have something to do with all the rain we have had over the past month?
I bought a tiny potted Aloe 5 years ago because I actually use it for burns and cuts. I also rubbed the soothing gel that comes from the leaves on a surgical scar that was rather large and sore. Today this scar, that is on my lower back is smooth and not too bad to look at and I really think the Aloe helped it heal. The original plant outgrew the pot so I put it way out back near the creek and it grew to the size of a garbage can lid. It may be funny but once in a while you will see me go down there with the scissors to cut a piece for some cut or abrasion. The babies that grew beside it were always pulled and I'd give them to friends and neighbors.
The flowers are rather like hanging bells and have a waxy feel about them.
