Aloë Vera varieties for sale

We would like to tell you a bit more about the most popular Aloë plants. The first, of course, is the Aloë Vera (Aloe Barbadensis). This is a popular houseplant and also grows well outdoors in tropical climates. The plant has beautiful thick green fatty leaves that have healing properties for your skin. So she is good company, not only because she is beautiful to look at but also her inner self is special. Her inner self can even cool down your (sunburnt) skin. Yes, this is really true! The Aloë Vera contains a gel and juice that’s been used to treat various health conditions for thousands of years. It’s relatively simple to harvest an Aloë plant for gel and juice. You’ll need a mature plant that’s at least a few years old.

Secondly, the Lace Aloë (Aloë Aristata) is a small type of Aloë plant that has short soft succulent leaves and white speckles. Native to Southern Africa, this Aloë variety is also called the Torch plant or guinea-fowl aloe. The name for this type of Aloë comes from the ‘lacy’ white edges on the leaves. The surface of the greenish leaves is covered in small white raised dots. Unlike varieties of Aloë Vera plants that can have long spindly leaves, Lace Aloë plant leaves grow in small clumps resembling a rosette shape.

Finally, similar to the Lace Aloë is the shortleaf Aloë (Aloë Brevifolia), this Aloë has white jagged edges to its blue-grey leaves. This is a small Aloë plant that grows only about 10 cm high. The short, thick, clumping leaves form a rosette pattern. When this Aloë species gets enough sun, the leaves can become light red.
