I love pachypodiums and have collected a couple over the years. I got some seeds last November from Sharon Hook at her house during our annual Aloe, cactus succulent society Christmas party. I then used the this link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jumuAytjMsI and followed the instructions on how to grow them. Instead of the plastic cover on each individual pot, I placed my pots in my mini greenhouse. IT WAS REALLY EASY!!!!! 6 months later, I have success, I got about 50 plants!!!! I have posted below the pachypodium plant (from google) for those who don't know it! (Absolutely stunning isnt it!!🥰🥰🥰. You can have it in your garden landscape or as a potted plant. I have also posted the flower, the pods and what the seeds look like. Lastly, my babies!!! I cant wait till they are older!

Thank you Andy de Wet from The ALOE FARM, for this recipe to eradicate white scale.

White scale on aloes will eventually kill them and spread to your other aloes. Malasol + Oleum + G49 is an Excellent cocktail for scale insects.

Hello, may someone please help me identify this Aloe. The garden I bought it from insisted it was Aloe Vera but judging from the pictures I have seen on Facebook of Aloe Vera I highly doubt this one is... thanks.
Hi is Aloe Press still functioning in Zimbabwe, it was a division of the Adult Literacy Organization of Zimbabwe (ALOZ). Some excellent kids books including on plants, etc. Ross Cooper.
Aloe ID. Can you help me identify this Aloe? I’m sure is not Aloe vera. Aloe arboscens doesn’t seem to be as Well. I thought in Aloe ferox...? Or other... (I don’t have photos of inflorescence)
Can anybody help identify this Aloe? In Nigeria but not indeginious I think. Is it the aloe Vera and can be used and not poisinous? Some aloes I hear can't be used for medicinal purposes!
Enjoy !
