It gets my standard treatment, watered about every two weeks in the summer and fed with Chempak 8 every other watering. It has responded really well to being in a han...

Hanging pot

Re: Problem with aloe stalk?

Hi Oleg, I have had something similar happen a few times. The flower stalk seems to get caught and double back, if I try to free the stalk it usually just breaks! Rather a nuisance.

Re: came home to bit of a nightmare
