I didn’t know Aloe’s would bloom until one popped up a couple of years ago. This year I have two coming out. The pictures show one in bloom and a different one putting up a stalk. I have just moved them out of the basement about two weeks after last average frost date. Last year they didn’t bloom because I had them in direct, hot, afternoon sun. They stayed brown the whole summer. I later found out that happens when they get too much sun. Who knew? I thought they were a desert plant. These are potted in a combo of whatever dirt I had and worm castings.
Does anyone know; Are they always orange? Or, can there be different colors?
