    I used to have one of these growing in a large pot in my house. I had to reluctantly dispose of it because it was causing too many injuries (mostly to myself).

    Very powerful plant with miraculous healing properties. I distribute products for haircare, skin care, bath care, and physical health care from this plant. Twenty two times more potent than Aloe Vera, and is known as the grandfather of all Aloes.

    I live in Hennops River, slightly SW of Pretoria, which is well-known for all our aloes. I have noticed in the last couple of years that I have lost at least 12 aloes in my garden. The heads seem to rot at the heart and fall off, leaving the ‘stalk’ sadly standing on it own. Please tell me why this is happening and will they survive through this? Is is due to all the rain we have had in the last couple of years? Is there anything I can do to preserve the last of the aloes that I have?

    Quintessentially South African. A plant with a unique character and an air of mystery and charm surrounding it. I think it’s so absolutely cool and to think it’s so weirdly wonderfull…. freaky! Does anybody know of some Khoisan myths about this plant?
