Aloe Ferox Bloomed Out


Hi Hap,

Please find below photos of my Ferox we discussed yesterday. 2-3 leaves on the back side are covered with black/grayish stains. Are these something to be worried about?

Thanks for taking the time to respond.

Faraz,

It looks more like sunburn damage… than freeze damage. Is it on the side facing the house?

Hap

Hi Hap,

Actually, that Ferox was recently planted; the markings were on it when I bought it. I just positioned the plant so the bad leaves would not be visible from the front.

Best,
Faraz

Faraz,

It is likely abrasion or sunburn from being turned after shipment, which can happen when the north side leaves get turned to face south, they just do not have much resistance to UV.
