I have a very large aloe vera. My husband knocked it over and broke off several very large leave. Of course I want to save the gel. But it is very tedious slitting each leaf open and scraping the inside. I was using a knife but that picked up too much green pulp so I switched to using a spoon upside down.
Does anyone have a better method? Some Suggested in Parking Lot that I freeze the whole leaves and then thaw and gel should come out much easier. Since I'm going to have to freeze it anyway so it won't spoil, I thought this might work. What do you think?

I daresay they are not reliably Ided regarding cacti. For example:
http://www.plantoftheweek.org/week374.shtml
Their Myrtillocactus geometrizans looks rather like a Stenocereus, maybe Steno griseus.
And their Carnegiea gigantea in http://www.plantoftheweek.org/week346.shtml looks rather like a Pachycereus pringlei to me.

Steven Hammer is one of my heroes. Not only a prolific hortist with fully developed skills in science and plant culture, but a quirky and talented writer who reaches out from the page and draws the reader in to share his passion for his lovely "vegetables" (his word... ha!). Besides his freely shared (and quite generous) "The New Mastering the Art of Growing Mesembs", I highly recommend his nursery storefront:
http://www.cactus-mall.com/rana/ and by request or inquiry on his private-distribution email list.

Besides his admired books already published, keep an eye out for the upcoming series of books on mesembs (adding depth and incorporating new discoveries among these specialty plants). Here's a link to the publisher, with tantalizing information about this planned series -- now in production, I believe:
http://www.littlesphaeroid.com/

I heard Steven speak at 28th Succulent Plant Symposium. He was the keynote and he was terrific.

'Mapping the Cacti of Mexico'


I just got hold of this new book. I think it is a must for all of us seriously interested in the cacti of Mexico.

This book of 128 pages (the first of a series) gives very short but important info about the habitat of about 35 genera (no Escobaria, Coryphantha, Mammillaria, Stenocactus etc yet) with their -according to David Hunt's taxonomy existing- species and their location (based on about 5700 herbarium items) which are marked on 50 geographical maps. So one can actually get an impression where and how the species of those genera are located to each other.
