My Aloe doran black is about ready to burst into flower. This is only the second time it has flowered.

Impressive. Be sure to upload a photo when it's blooming.

I'm pretty sure your plant is Aloe variegata, not A. 'Doran Black'. Still a nice plant though.

Thank you John and Ralph for correcting my mis-identification - new label required :oops:

I will of course post a photo of the plant in full bloom Rod.
