How do you tell what an aloe vera’s gender is? And where are the seeds?
I’m new to the world of plants, and I was just wondering if there was a way to find out the gender of an aloe vera? Do they even have gender? (I remember some plants have both gender, and I’m not sure if that’s the case with aloe or not).

Also, how do you find out where the seeds are at on an aloe vera plant? If it ever dies, I’d like to replant it.

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!

How do i know if my aloe veras are healthy or not?

How do i know if my aloe veras are healthy or not?
i plot some aloe veras in direct sunglight.
it didnt really matter before, but now as the plant gets older and grows out ALOT MORE, MOST of the aloe vera leaves turn RED.
i tried cutting them off, but they just heal and stay red.
does that mean its unhealthy?
i am told not to use red aloe veras externally because it might contain skin cancer cells; people who have skin cancer have red skin.
so i dont really know if i should just leave that pot of aloe veras to die or what.

i dont think plants contain cancer cells to humans.
sounds like your plants are just fine, i would use them.
people have red skin for lots of reasons, sunburn, maybe your plant should be moved to a less sunny spot, maybe it is getting too much sun, really..
