Aloe Plicatilis and Ferox Flowering

15 September 2009 No Comment

Early spring sees both aloe ferox and picatilis flower each year. The look magnificent when flowering and structural masterpieces all year round.

As promised here is a photo of one of the local Wattle Birds feating on the Aloe Ferox flower.

I’ve had both plants for around 18-20 years, since they were small pot size. They’ve been in their current spots for fours years now, you can┬átransplant them very late in life. I don’t fertilizer either aloe, but they get a lot of Wattle Bird pooh as a spring fertilizer!

Here’s a picture of a wonderful multi-branched specimen. Thius plant looks like it has flowered four times and I’d guess it’s around forty years old.
