My Ancient Aloe Vera

IMG_1323I can’t remember how old this Aloe Vera plant is.  We bought it from our old house in 1999. It could be 20 years old and is stunning in its age.

I do nothing to it. It is in a pot in a shaded area and I might from time to time throw some water on it (though it never appears in need of it).

I might also, very occasionally, top up the potting mix in the pot and every now and then it throws a really tall flower.  The flower lasts for weeks and weeks.

Bonus: When I burn myself in the kitchen I can break off a chunky leaf and cover my pain with soothing aloe vera.
