Does anyone know of plants that have unique abilities?
I sort of want to grow plants or flowers that can do cool stuff. Like The Venus Flytrap can catch bugs, The Aloe plant can help cure sunburn and bug bites, or the Resurrection Fern that can play dead in hot heat then turn itself normal with water.

I have long heard about the benefits of aloe vera and I was wondering if this is a plant that people commonly grow or find in the Phoenix area or even Arizona in general? For example, are there fields/gardens where you can go see or buy them? Thanks.

If it has a cigar in its mouth it is at least 18.

It would depend on how it was tended to. If it was in the best soil, a Mediterranean environment and so on.

Answer by Charlie F
Call a few Mom&Pop type shops and ask. If they don’t have the plant on hand they will order it for you and give your instructions. It’s sad that Low’s, and Home Depot have driven so many shops like this out of business.

What are the different edible indoor Aloe Vera plants?
I am So Into Aloe Vera, it’s terrific…
I recently bought 2 Aloe Vera plants for in doors.
I’ve done a lot of reading about this amazing Creation..
But, I’m a ‘little’ confused.
One place I bought my first little plant buddy was pretty much clueless.
Thanks..
PS. I have already used a couple of leaves from my first baby Aloe Vera plant and Love it.
No issues at all, in fact I have seen incredible improvements with my digestion.
The King Aloe plant leaves I bought in a produce market, I use all the time, same thing .
I want to grow my own..
Is there a difference in Aloe Vera, and King Aloe Vera, besides the obvious in size ?
Organic, or just simply grown like all plants that someone intends to eat ?
Please educated me better..
I am not completely new to the medical external benefits of Aloe Vera, it really is one of Gods’ miracle/ medicine plants.
I want to know all there is to know.
Thanks.
PS. I do live in Florida so it grows well here, this I do know..
For those who live here, I live in Orlando, point out a really wonderful Aloe Vera farm, market, what not, to buy these babies..
