we've always had aloes growing outside and they could be years old but have never seen these. she said this one already flowered and then she found these things. could they be seed pods? in all the years we've had aloes i've never seen a seed pod. i thought they just sent out babies- that's how we always got more. any info???

Yes, those are seed pods. Most aloe are not self fertile, so you probably had 2 blooming at the same time. Anyway, when they get dark and dry they'll crack open and drop the seeds. Aloe are fairly easy to grow from seed, so good luck with them!

What kind of Aloe was it? I have seed pods just like that in my back yard and would love to see a pic of the plant they came from. Please! [Smile]

Wow - that's neat!! We have a HUGE ALOE plant that my husband nurtured back from certain death, we got a flower this year - 4 feet tall!! It was so cool!!! Good luck with the pods!
