Aloe Vera Seed Pods
by Sue Garner
I have an Aloe Vera plant, not sure what kind ?
Last summer and currently my Aloe has a green
pod at the top where the flowers were.What is it
and what do I need to do with it ?Thank you for
your help and advice.
Sue, you are seeing something I have not seen yet. Aloe vera seed pods! Checking it out, I find that the flowers CAN bear pods - especially when pollinated (usually by hummingbirds in Africa).
So it would seem your aloe vera flowers got pollinated, and you now have pods - which should have seeds in them. You could try planting them. Maybe in a flower pot so you can watch the new plant carefully.
At least, I would if I were in your shoes! If you do, will you let me know how it turns out?
(Have you got a photo of these aloe vera seed pods?)
I'm posting this so that if anyone else knows more about this, they can add comments and help us all out.
