Hi Randall,
The 10 little guys arrived today and are planted and happy. Thanks for sending them so quickly--the enthusiasm level stays up in kids that way. Have a great season!
Best wishes, Cece
 
Hi! Thanks for the quick delivery of the Aloe Plants I received them on Monday.  They are all planted and looking great.  The Groom is very happy that you came thru for him.
Sandra

Hi
Just wanted to let you know that I got the plant in the mail today!
It looks great. We potted it in a tera cota pot with potting soil and watered it. So we don't have to water it again for the next week or so, right?
Thanks! My boyfriend is really going to enjoy this gift!

Thanks! They should do well here in Texas. They grow
wild out in fields west of here about 20 miles but my
hubby was not in to going out to just snag one in a
field somewhere.
Susan

Sorry it took so long to get back to you. I received the plant in excellent condition. As I am not really a plant person,( I killed a cactus once ) I turned its care and feeding over to my oldest son. He planted it and has been taking very good care of it and it has been named Raffle, as I won it in the raffle. It now sits looking mighty pretty on my dining room table. But I am not allowed to touch it. oh well believe me it is for the plants own good. Thanks again and have a very Merry Christmas. Marge Tarrant
 
Hi, I contacted you some time ago about a flooded Aloe plant.
Well as you said, the leaves dropped off in pools of liquid one at a time which was terrible. Although there are two main stems left, I am sure they will drop eventually. I just wanted to let you know, I took all the little babies from the base and although most died, I have managed to keep 6 to date and they seem to be coming on nicely. So, thankyou for giving me the advice. They really are amazing little things, as I bearly planted them, I only really lay them on the surface and they have taken. A good outcome to a tragedy.

Hi Jan, Thanks for visiting. usually overwatering is fatal. the damage occours from the roots up. when it becomes evident it is irreversable. you have taken the right actions. if the pups aren't too bad maybe they will survive. Randall

THANK YOU FOR THE PLANTS. I APOLOGIZE FOR NOT RESPONDING SOONER (MY HUSBAND
HAD HIP REPLACEMENT SURGERY ON THE 8TH OF JUNE) I RECEIVED TWO PLANTS AND
PLANTED THEM IN CACTUS SOIL MIX. WHEN THEY ARRIVED ONE HAD A ROOT SYSTEM
ATTACHED AND THE OTHER DID NOT. I FOUND ROOTS IN THE PACKING MATERIAL. IT
MUST HAVE COME OFF IN SHIPMENT. I PLANTED THEM BOTH ANYWAY. THEY APPEAR TO
BE HANGING IN THERE. DO ALOE'S TO THROUGH SHOCK OR A PERIOD OF DORMANCY
AFTER SHIPMENT AND REPLANTING?
I HAVE THEM ON MY FRONT PORCH - IT IS COVERED SO THEY GET ALOT OF LIGHT, BUT
NO DIRECT SUNLIGHT. IT HAS BEEN VERY HOT AND HUMID HERE (CHEROKEE
COUNTY-NORTH OF ATLANTA). I THOUGHT THE HUMIDITY WOULD BE BETTER FOR THEM
THAN TO BE IN A VERY COLD AIR-CONDITIONED HOUSE. I AM HOPING THEY DO WELL
AND PRODUCE MORE. IT IS MY INTENTION TO INCORPORATE THE GEL IN TO MY DAILY
PROTEIN SHAKE. THANK YOU FOR SENDING THEM TO ME.

SHERYLL FORREST

Hi Randall,

Please to meet your acquaintance also. I am 1/2 Mexican on my Father side (he is full mexican) and my Mother side was Germany and Irish, what a blend, huh?

Anyway, I use to be a member at Adlanpro and I believe I remember you when I was there and remembers that you sold Aloe Plants. I live in Salina, Ks. at the moment and I can't seem to be able to find any Aloe Plants here.

I have a skin problem which is hard to seem to get it cleared up and I do NOT want scaring. I heard that Aloe Plants have a lot of healing properties. I can attest to that because my Brother years ago had a Coleman Stove blow up in his face and really burnt him badly and they said that he would be scared for the rest of his life.

However, they (him and his wife) had gotten some Aloe Plants and she applied it daily to the side of his face that was badly burnt and WOW when it healed he had ABSOLUTELY NO SCARING and it doesmn't even look as if he were burnt.

So I was wondering IF you could fix me up as my good friend Jeffrey had written to you. Whatever you can do would be greatly appreciated as this skin problem is all over my body and need a lot of HELP!

Regards,

Donna Lira

Hello I planted 4 aloes outside in a southwest facing garden about 6 weeks ago.  They have taken hold and 2 have now sent forth 'flowers',one has bloomed and I am seeing hummingbirds around it now!  I am concerned about how to take care of them in the winter though.  We are in a norhtern suburb of Atlanta - 7b zone - I believe and we get a few frosty mornings.  what should we do to help them make it through the winter?  They are very unique to our neighbourhood and I do not want to lose them to the cold. Your website is very good. Susan
Take them inside at the first hint of frost. Mine come inside by early November.
 
Got the plants today...Potted them all.  They are great.  Thanks again.  Will be ordering again in the future. Michele
 
Just a note to say that the aloe plant arrived, has been potted, and seems to be fine. Thank you.  Stef
 
Thank you, my little pups love New Mexico. Linda
 
Hi. I just ordered an 8 to 10 inch plant. Thanks for a chance to grow one of these on my own!  I went to the internet hoping to find a place to buy, and I was blown away by your generous offer. I have had cellulitis, and due to some medical errors, I actually almost died in September due to septic shock.  I have some pretty rough skin and scarring on my legs, but I have noticed that products with aloe in them have been helping keep them smoother and more moisturized.  I thank you for your generosity, and hope that the actual plant will be more effective than the additives in creams. Thanks!! Lori Jewell

Greetings! I received the Aloe plant today...It was in my mailbox for several hours at 30 degree temperatures. I warmed it up and planted it. It looks OK! Thanks! Regards; Mark Hattie
The bubble wrap and foam packaging insulates against weather extremes! Randall

Thank you Randall! I'll buy the gel for a couple of years and nurse these plants lovingly!
Lisa

The aloe plant arrived in the mail today in great condition. I appreciate the potting and care instructions as it has been many, many years since I had a couple of cactus and aloe plants. The historical info was good also.
Thanks,
Mike Williams

I appreciate and absolutely love the aloes I have recieved from you. The aloes are really easy to take care of. I thought I was doomed to ever have a plant cause of many misfortunes of trying to take care of other plants.
Thanks so much for your time!

Sincerely,
Melissa

Hi Randall,
I recieved my aloe plants and they are fabulous!!!
Thanks so much,
Jen :)

Hi, Just wanted to let you know that the cactus arrived in yesterday's mail, it was cold but not frozen. I put it near our woodburner stove to warm it up a bit. I left you positive feedback, thanks for your's. I asked you a question about the aloe plant and I was thinking of getting another of the tall cactus also, thanks again you deserve your 100 per cent. I've got terra cotta pots and the cactus will be planted in one today.

Greetings!

Dear Randall.
I've just discovered your website (quite by accident!) and, I must say, how wonderful! I have meant to pick up an aloe plant for years and finally thought to get one last week. I have 3 children and I always seem to be trying different products to relieve their little skin issues: bug bits, minor rashes, scrapes, the usual. So I know it's going to come in handy. Not to mention the fact that they are such beautiful plants. As an avid gardener myself with perennial and vegetable gardens I am always looking for new and interesting plants to adorn my home. I had Googled aloe plants to find out how best to transplant them as the one I bought could use a larger home and I have a container I was hoping would be perfect. That is how I discovered your site. I wanted to learn as much as I could. What a wonderful thing you do! I would be curious to know how you happened to start doing this and are you having success? I would also like to ask if you are at all interested in having other people in other parts of the country growing aloe to help with your cause. I think it's a wonderful thing to do and would love to participate. That is, if you would like to have help. If not, of course, I understand, but I wanted to make the offer. I live in Hartford County in Connecticut. Again, thank you for what you do (if I know of anyone that needs an aloe plant I will let them know about your site!) and I look forward to hearing from you.
Sincerely, Suzanne C

Thank you for the information. This will be a good thing as my wife and I have about 3 plants and sometimes the lengths get to long and break-off. Thank you again for the info and have a wonderful day. You have been most helpful. Randy
 
Thank you for answering my queation about seperating my aloe. Now I have another question for you. Will the juice straight from the plant leave harm my dog if she licked it? My reason for asking is, my min pin has Demodex and the vet said to use a mild baby shampoo on her with a moisturizer. But in between baths her skin dries out because of these little mites. If the juice from the aloe plant can help with keeping her skin from drying out between baths, and not harm her. I use it. But I need to know first. hank you for your time, Heather
Hi Heather, It won't hurt her in small quantities. It might actually be good for her!
 
I live in Statesboro, Ga. and my Sister lives in Loudiwici, Ga. near Savannah. She called me a little while ago and asked me to come on the computer and look up aloe plants. She has a beautiful one and this year it has "bloomed" for the first time ever. She is so excited but every one that sees it says they do not bloom. : ) Hers has an orange type bud bloom on it and from the way she describes it...to me it sounds like a cactus type bloom I saw once. SANDRA
My mature aloe plants bloom with a yellow flower. Randall 

Thanks Randall. I'll keep you posted on any milestones. It's a
beautiful plant, about a foot out of the soil, so it should be settling in pretty
soon and raising a family. haha. And thanks for the next order.

Hi Randall, just a quick message to thank you for yr love of aloes & strangers. My sick aloe is making a comeback. I took yr advice, put it in compost in a semi-clay loam in a mostly sunny area. Looks green, the leaves are thickening, mine is doing fine. Candy Reed

 
I read on your site that the plant be 2 or 3 years old to be used, would a younger plant just not be effective yet...please explain. How long are the leaves on a 2 to 3 year old plant? Thanks for your help, Anita Woelke
As the aloe plant ages it produces and concetrates minerals. Leaves under 2 years have very little stored. The leaf must live on the plant for 3 years for maximum qualities to be accumulated. A 3 year old plant will form leaves up to 15" I have larger leaves 24".

How nice! My 16 year old son has been asking me for an Aloe Plant to be his friend and companion for a while now, and I have been unable to find one, until I finally decided to check online. I was amazed to find you. How nifty!! It's also great that my video game addicted son has decided to take up a new avocation, so I want you to know that you are contributing to a worthy cause, possibly preventing a youth on the precipice of life in choosing the right path through the opportunity of nurturing offered by this little plant. Sue Cassista

Say Randall, you were right too about our aloe plant is doing so much better now that we are watering it only once every 3 weeks! You sure know your plants! We sure enjoy your Aloe Plants and encourage others to get some too! Thanks again, respectfully, your friends here in Idaho, Gary and Janice Hawkins.

Randall, Thanks for the swift reply.  I will forward this to my son.  If he has satisfied all the necessities, it is only by accident.  He loves plants but is a neglectful gardener at best.  I will certainly compliment him though since I never was able to produce a bloom or a plant that size.  He told me he's afraid that one night when he's sleeping the thing will get him. It's not that big yet but it is getting there. Thanks again for the information. Elaine

Thanks for your reply, I have hope.  I removed some of the leaves and on the trunk which is usually completely white, there are rings of hard, calloused yellow, like the yellow aloe blood that accumulates when you cut a leaf.  I can only suspect that I choked the base layers of some leaves, and hope that it doesn't go too deep. Sara
As long as your leaves are firm, not mushy and still green, not black, then in time it will recover. When it is stressed aloe will go dormant and mar take several weeks to recover. As always only water when the soil is completely dry.

My Aloe Vera plant blooming in the house.. in oct till DEC.
Well here in Iceland you do not grow Aloe Vera plants outside. They can bee grown in greenhouses but not outside. I have 5 plants which have all been blooming and the oldest one started to do that 10 and 7 year old but now some of their baby´s have done that also just after 2 and 3 year. I m sending you some pic´s of my plants..well they take all the space in the windows :-)...Hope you can see them properly..not easy to move them around as big they are..
Best to you all from Inga in ICELAND.
Thanks Inga for the greato photos

Hi!
Thanks for the quick delivery of the Aleo Plants I received them on Monday. They are all planted and looking great. The Groom is very happy that you came thru for him.

Aloe Man,
I would like to give Aloe plants at my wedding as a gift. I ordered one of your free ones for $3.00 and that is the perfect size. I was wondering if you have around 30 -35 plants that I could buy from you.
I would need them around May 15 so I could plant them and have them established be for the wedding June 17. What would the cost be?

Please advise.

Sandra Radomski

I have bulk pricing and discounts for larger quantities.
Thanks so much for your interest. I also have coupons and for orders like yours and for children's projects I am happy to lower the total cost even more!!

Mr. Parks, Thanks for responding to me.  I will be mailing a check to you early next week.  Please tell me the best place to purchase the plants to start going them myself. I appreciate your help. Rose
Hello Ms. Brown, Thanks for visiting my website. I have whole aloe leaves availible in bulk. Each leaf is aprox. 15 inches long, 3 inches wide at the base, and 1 inch thick. They are at least 3 years old, so have high concentrations of the beneficial qualities. Price for a leaf is 10 dollars, I pay shipping. Shipping time is within 4 days, US only. I accept paymet through paypal, this address- freealoeplant@yahoo.com. If you don't have a paypal account you can get one free using this link- https://www.paypal.com/us/mrb/pal=X8TFT3ZWSKUGS The whole leaf aloe is a great natural healing agent. The juice products are processed and the manufacturers have thier own recipes, which I am not privy to. Aloes make excellent houseplants, very easy to care for. They produce offshoots which can be transplanted. You could grow your own plants and within 2-3 years produce enough leaves to supply your enough for your needs. I hope that this answers all your questions. My best regards, Randall Parks
How can I get the Aloe Plant, the large leaves I cut these and take the meat, put it in my blender and drink some every morning with a little orange juice. I don't want to necessarily grow the plants.  Is there a way I can order the big leaves (20 or more inches)?  This stuff is great.  It heals the inside of the body as well as the outside. Can I order these from you?  Please let me know.  Also, I saw on the website that they have this juice already bottled.  What's mixed in your juice.  Maybe I could buy it that way also.  It's just that I've gotten used to the plant and I wanted to stick with that. Looking to hear from you. Rose Brown

Randall,

Thanks for the quick response! I didn't think cross-border plant importing/exporting was allowed, but it was worth a try! I, myself, have a few different types of aloes & a couple of each type! You would know about propagating aloes, so can you take a leaf off, dip it in root grow powder, & just stick it in the soil to grow another plant? I did this as an experiment a couple weeks ago & am wondering if I am wasting a good leaf. All my aloes are indoor plants & are thriving well.

My mother, whom I was going to get the aloe sent to if it could have been done, just lost her aloe of something like 28 years this Christmas. My parents were visiting us over Christmas & when my cousin went to water my mom's multitude of plants, the cat had it knocked over & broken off @ the stalk. My cousin tried to save it by replanting the stalk, but to no avail. The aloe, only ever an indoor house plant, had grown to over three feet high & was about three & a half feet wide. It was massive! It was in the biggest pot my mom could find! I am hoping the leaf I have planted will form another plant, as it was my mom who gave me my first aloe. I just wish to return the favour to her!

Well, thank you for distributing aloes wherever you can! I know from personal experience that they DO work on burns & cuts. They are really a miracle plant & the best thing to have in a home, particulary with preschool children! I grew up in a household with them & appreciate the natural medicinal option they provide. Keep up the great work & pass the aloes on!

Crystal
