Well, was planted in as a 15cm seedling with no branches around October 2009 and right now it's near 60cm tall and had 3 30 something cm branches and 2 10cm secondary branches.
If you look at the above photos it's put on about around 5 cm of growth in alittle over a month, just counting overall height now and not how much the branches themselves has grown.
Here's the earliest photo I have of it, taken June last year...so 7 months or so ago.
So 7 months ago the branch I just cut was just a 5cm nub, now it was 30 odd cm and with a diameter of a beer bottle at it's thickest.
The aloe is nowdays transplanted out into a big pot as it grew like wildfire and the 2 "flapjacks" will likely go next as they are branching like crazy and threathening to take over the whole space.
Wonder if it could be something about the spot and soil in that corner as everything we plant there just takes off like crazy, gets direct sunlight from just about sunrise to around 3pm and the flowerbed sits right ontop of a sewer pipe. Acctually have an access hatch to the sewer in that very flowerbed, just hidden underneath the pebbles.
