HI. Here is my aloe that a girlfriend of mine gave to me when she moved across the country. It was in a little 10" pot when she gave it to me a year ago. It's since gone crazy, growing. She even produced a baby.

Anyone know what type of aloe this is??



Thanks guys!!!!

The baby come from the big plant. So, usually that means they are the "same kind"?

You've got the same Aloe vera chinensis that's commonly sold as Aloe vera (which has yellow flowers and its rosette is more compact). A. v. c. has orange flowers as is a flopper if not grown in direct light (like mine isn't) - it tightens up in more sun / less water but you want to acclimate it to full sun.
