There's something... exotic and clean about Aloes.

They're looking good (tu)

I absolutely love aloes, my favourite succulent genus along with Euphorbia. Your plants are beautiful, keep sharing!

Great display Mike.

Nice to see you use pots other then the conventional terracotta/plastic for your Aloes. I think they enhance the display
for these type of succulents.

Lovely plants Mike. I especially love A. parvula, for its blue/purple flushed leaves, and have a couple I grew form seed, but I find it a bit "iffy"! Have you had any problems with it?

Cracking specimens you have there, a credit to you (tu)

I especially like parvula and dorothea, and if you either have spare offsets of them i would love to buy or if you know who sells them please let me know if you would, it would be great to have these in my collection :)
