Please help to support Ukraine against the bullying tactics of a huge neighboring country.

Falling over!


Long, smooth leaves. Plant is falling over and I'm scared it's going to break. Already moved it to a bigger pot.

Actually, it's an Aloe
by: Jacki

This is some kind of Aloe, I believe - I would need to see the edges of the leaves to be sure.

If it is an Aloe it will have toothed or spiny edges. You can see more about Aloe succulent plants here with pictures of several different kinds.

There are detailed instructions on how to 'remake' these plants when they get too long and want to flop over here.

AS I say in many places on this site, these types of plants absolutely must have bright light. In a north facing window or in full shade it's not bright enough. Get a grow light or at the very least grow them outdoors for the summer.

Smooth Edges
by: Annie

Thanks for your reply. I always thought it was aloe too, but the edges of the leaves are smooth! Not spiky.

In my collection here in Cape Town, South Africa I have an Aloe without teeth. Cannot say what the name is of this aloe looking for light!
