    I've had this little mini aloe for around 2 years, and it hasn't done much cept grow a little bit. But, today, somehow only today, I noticed a really tall flowerstalk admist my plants. I thought, "Utricularia?", but quickly realized that I had no Utrics on my windowsill. It turns out it was my mini aloe.



    Can anyone identify it as it is? Or would you need a flower pic?

    Thanks. I don't know much about Aloes, but is it rare for them to flower?

    I have a different type of aloe that I grow. I can confirm they are grown for their folliage and not their flowers which on mine were sorta banana shaped and colored about the same shade of yellow.

    I used to have one of those. When it flowered, the flowers were always somehow pointing directly at my bed. It was really creepy - I even rearranged my whole room once to see if it was just tracking the light coming from my window, and the next day it was facing my bed again. I got rid of that plant.

    Lol, to tell ya the truth, its doing the same thing. I could have sworn its flower stalk was straight last night, but now I think it's starting to point towards my bed. I should make several photos of it to see how it moves in a day.
