How to distinguish Aloe Vera from other Aloe's ?

Post by Verc » Mon, 08 Jun 1998 04:00:00



I have a few plants of which I think are Aloe's but I don't know what
a real Aloe Vera should look like .
Since this seems to be  the Aloe with the best properties I'd like to
know.
Mine look like this: dark green thick leaves , a little ***ely on
the edges .about every two years I get a tall flowerspike with orange
'tubes' .I propagate it by means of the little plants that come out on
the bottom of the plant.

Any comments?
