Cactus - Item 001 - Aloe ferox Plant
Retail Value: $20
This is one of the best known South african plants with a long history of medicinal use. The bitter aloe will reach 2-3 metres in height with the leaves arranged in a rosette. The old leaves remain after they have dried, forming a "petticoat" on the stem. The spines along the leaf edge are reddish in colour. Spines may also be present on upper and lower surfaces of the leaves as well.
