Lucky Aloe

We keep a few Aloe Vera plants at home that used to belong to my parents. After the latest move, I felt the plants really suffered and I was afraid they weren’t going to make it (they were turning slightly orange and brown)!

In a desperate attempt to save them, we bought new planting soil and replanted them, hoping the new soil would revive them.  As the weather got cooler in Miami over December and January, the plants started looking a little happier.

Last week after arriving from NY, I noticed one of them had flowered! It made me so happy, I just had to share!  It’s also a plus that flowering Aloe Vera is believed to be a sign of good luck and overall positive energy.
