I have loved all your aloe articles with their fabulous pictures. Thanks, Geoff! It just amazes me that these are not all there are out there--what an education! I have a question that came to me when you mentioned the nectar in one of them. Are there hummingbirds that feed on those open bloom ends?

Hummingbirds is one of the reasons people like to grow aloes- they attract them. As I am writing now there is a humminbird feeding on an aloe flower outside my window, and it's raining!

I figured those long tubes would be attractive to hummers! We need to rename you, Geoff. How does "Aloebob" sound, or "Palmaloebob"? LOL
