Aloe Vera - The Plant: Often called the "Medicine Plant, "Miracle Plant" or the "Natural Healer", Aloe Vera is a plant of many surprises. It flourishes in warm and dry climates, and many people mistake it for a cactus, but in fact it is a member of the Lily family. It stays moist where other plants would wilt and die, closing its pores to prevent the loss of moisture.
There was one broken limb and two bent tips which bums me out because they never recover from that. I ordered several plants and the tips must have been pushed up against another one in the box. There are also a few brown spots which I hope does not mean my plant is unhealthy. The fact this is the only one I had an issue with is ok with me. It’s part of the reality of ordering plants online. Other than that, it’s healthy, and still beautiful in my opinion.

So the shop tried very hard to ship this aloe Vera plant with great care, but due to the fragility of the plant, one frond was completely broken off and another damaged to the point I had to cut it off. Again, this is not because of the nursery. They packaged it with great care with bubble wrap, packing peanuts, and even a warming pad (kinda like the ones you can put in your gloves) to make sure it didn’t get too cold. I have transplanted it to a bigger pot and it’s starting to perk back up. The 4 stars are merely for the plant being broken up a bit. I would give 5 stars to the shop itself and did so for the rose bush I bought from them at the same time.
