Bacterial Vaginosis has symptoms such as;
Staggering Statistics for BV
If you recognize your symptoms, don't feel dirty or shamed and worthless. There are many others going through the same thing. You just don't have to stay on the same useless medical treadmill most of them are on. (If only they had the courage to seek help).
Recently I found some books with excellent answers and advice. MORE about them on this page.
Propagation of Aloe Vera Plants
Let's talk Propagation of aloe vera plants. Here is my own simple propagation method for starting new aloe vera plants fully described, including soil preparation, whether to fertilize, and how to prop up a leaning plant.
Aloe vera plants are not hard to grow. Many have them as house plants, or if they live in a warm climate they may even grow them outside in their flowerbeds. In Texas and Puerto Rico, for example, they are grown in fields, with the leaves growing about 3 to 4 feet long - and even longer! These are harvested to make into commercial products for juices and creams.
Can't get yours to grow? Or can't propagate and grow enough for your health needs?
If you give up you can always start buying the products. (I'll be happy to tell you which ones I like best).
An aloe vera plant will sprout little baby plants from it's roots. At least, I've called them babies. I believe the proper name is offsets. Later I discovered that many others refer to these little plants as pups. In any case, propagation from your first plant is quite easy.
When the babies or offsets are about 3 to 4 inches long, just gently pull away these new little plants, trying to keep as much of the white rootlet with it as possible, including any little hair roots, and place it in a depression in another pot of soil. Press the soil close around the root and your baby aloe vera is ready to grow on it's own.
That sounds almost too easy? Then lets discuss propagation in more detail. You can also see my steps in photos if you click the link at the bottom of that page.
In doing some research on this, I discover that others have more complicated ways of doing propagation.
Some folks talk of laying the new little "offset" or baby aside for a few days so its root dries a callus over it. Well, that won't hurt. I recall once pulling a bunch of these baby plants from the larger pots as I was watering them, just in an effort to tidy them up. I didn't have new pots with soil ready, so I laid them on the table. They were about 3 to 5 inches long, and each had about 3 to 5 nice green leaves. I didn't have the heart to throw them out, and I wasn't sure what to do with them when I had so many pots full (like 69 or 75!) already.
