Oxfordshire, United Kingdom
I have an Aloe plant, not an Aloe Vera but was expecting to be able to get the gel out of it. It has grown quite big now and some of the leaves are nice and fat and it has lots of 'babies' growing round the base too. The lady in the garden centre said to cut the tip of the leaf off and squeeze the gel out but there does not seem to be any inside. Then I saw on the TV someone took a leaf off and cut in lengthwise. I am not sure of the difference between Aloe and Aloe Vera - help!!
