How do these plants avoid self-pollination?

How do these plants avoid self-pollination?
In my botany class we watched a movie about pollination. I was wondering how two specific plants avoid self-pollinating themselves.
So, how does the geranium and aloe plant avoid self pollination?

Answer by Dean M.
Most plants with perfect flowers avoid this by having the “male” and “female” parts of their flowers maturing at different times so self-pollination is physically impossible. Some species, like the rosebay willow-herb described near the bottom of this website http://www-saps.plantsci.cam.ac.uk/articles/broad_pollen.htm also change the structure of the flowers so self-pollination is even less likely.

And there actually several instances where geraniums (both Geranium and Pelargonium genera) have exhibited self-pollination. Just google “geranium self pollination” and the first few entries are from scientific studies.

What should I do with all these Aloe Veras and Aloe Vera babies?

What should I do with all these Aloe Veras and Aloe Vera babies?
I have lots of Aloe Vera that keep producing offsprings, I then repot the offsprings… and have quite a collection now. Any suggestions what I should do with them? I will still keep some. A few ideas in mind are: give them to friends or sell them. I’d be interested to hear from you what you think I should do with them.
Thanks for the advise so far. I do know the medicinal and beauty values of Aloe Vera, that’s why I grew them in the first place.

Give them to friends and family and/or sell them – but another great way to get rid of them…. FREECYCLE.

Go to http://groups.yahoo.com and do a search for freecycle and whatever town, or area you live in, and then join the freecycle groups in your area. You can then post that you have these available, and you’d like to give them away free to anyone who will come pick them up. You can give away all to one person, or to different people. The point is to keep things out of the trash, but also that one persons trash, is another persons treasure.

Have fun!
