For the first time in my garden, I had two Soap Aloes in my front yard blooming simultaneously.  But apparently, one of them couldn't take the pressure.

See - look at the backyard Soap Aloe's bloom; it's flower stalk still stands tall & straight.  This is its first time, but do you see it falling down on the job?

But not the front yard's first-time bloomer.  Tall & straight certainly no longer applies.

Looks like a personal problem to me.


  1. Is it reaching for a little more sun?

  2. Elephant: Don't think so; hard to tell in the picture, but it is actually making a U-turn back towards the ground; thinking maybe a wind gust caught it just right.
