I have nearly killed this aloe 3-4 times, but it is resilient. @plants

@autumn @plants Years ago, I had an aloe plant on my desk at work. It was many years old and had served me well.

In 2011, I was off work for a couple of months after a motorcycle accident and when I returned, my manage broke the news to me that my aloe plant had become stinky and they were forced to dispose of it. This was sad, but I thought perhaps the plant had missed me.

It turns out my manage had read somewhere that plants liked lemonade, so she’d been giving my aloe that for 8 weeks 😮
