Aloe vaombe or similar ?


RE: Need Help to ID Plant

two thoughts..

first.. why not find something that could take a little more renter abuse .... though i cant imagine what would take more abuse than an aloe... lol ..

that said ... you might want to change out the potting media.... if it failed to hold the requisite moisture.. like it used to ...

congrats on braving it out.. and making your first post ... but next time.. mention you are down under ...


RE: Need Help to ID Plant

I wouldn't plant anything in there if it's a rental unit. The chances of it ever getting watered are slim and there are no plants that can live with that sort of neglect.

I'd remove them....or empty them so that the renters can plant something should they choose to at their own expense.

The Cacti & Succulents forum might also have suggestions about the aloe variety:

It looks like a Hercules Aloe to me.
