From my aloe barbadensis experiments,
the artificial way.

Hi everyone.

the first photo was taken after the addition of fermented rainwater.
the second after it had dried into plant matter.
the third a base example of how aloe barbadensis usually heals it's wounds.

Why and how exactly the red substance developed I am still working out, because when I attempted it again a few hours later--about the time the red substance had dried and the second photo taken--there was no red substance.

I am leaning towards time, light and heat as the major variables.
It might be a while before I try again, ha I don't want my plant full of holes.

Hi Kiorionis,

Thanks for sharing this interesting experiment!

Do you have any plans/ideas to take this work further? If yes, I'd be glad if you could elaborate.

Aloe is a powerful plant, and it pops up sometimes in very special spagyrical Elixirs...

Yes, I have thought out some possible steps to take.
One which interests me most is to isolate the tissue responsible and generate the red substance in a flask.
And after this to isolate the red substance and see if it will solidify or do anything else interesting.

Two is to introduce fermented rainwater into other plant-openings.

Three is to see how the red substance reacts to other vegetable species when introduced into openings.

But the first and third will depend on how well I come to understand the causative factors.

and thanks for the link!
