Aloe Vera Plants
Q.

Is my plant Aloe Vera?

Hannahdearnley added on March 28, 2015 | Answered

I had been looking for an aloe vera plant for ages when a friend said her plant had had 'babies' and gave me one. I am concerned it isn't actually an aloe vera plant and I'm worried it's poisonous. If it isn't, I have just cut off parts and opened them for the gel inside but I would like clarification of the plant before I use the gel. I have attached pictures for reference.

Thank you.

It looks like aloe vera but the only thing that is throwing me off is that aloe vera leaves grow in a spiral from the inside of the plant - or did those leaves die or get cut way back?
