Plant Origins

Endemic to South Africa

Plant Bio

There are many species of aloe, but Aloe humilis is grown for beauty rather than for medicine, like its cousin, Aloe vera. This blue-green aloe flowers once a year with show-stopping fire-red and yellow flowers on tall spikes. Like other aloes, they generate special protein-sugars and sugar-alcohols that take the place of water when the plant dries out, which prevents oxidative damage by stabilizing the plant's DNA and proteins. Although this plant could be used on the skin, it is neither juicy enough, nor grows as quickly as A. vera, so it's best to keep this plant as-is.

As cute as the real thing.
