A closer look at Aloe

With its large, fleshy, spiny leaves and silvery blue-green colour, this Aloe Vera plant has a contemporary, architectural feel. The real thing has medicinal and edible qualities, so of all our life-like succulents, this one naturally feels most at home in a kitchen.

Why life-like?

Touches of greenery dotted around a room give it more life and can even make it feel more relaxed. But we don’t always have time to water and look after plants. Instead, these life-like succulents give you all the stress-reducing benefits of the real thing, without the commitment.

From real-life to life-like

Aloe vera can grow up to a metre tall, with long, spike-like leaves. We’ve made ours as real as possible – from the matte texture to the various shades of a green and the small (not sharp) teeth along the edges. The difference is that it won’t outgrow its pot.

The pot

Each of these succulents comes in a pot, so you can put it straight out in your home. Made from papier mâché, its textured finish and pale grey colour give it the appearance of whitewashed stone. It’s even filled with realistically lumpy and mossy ‘soil’.

  • Diameter :12cm
  • Height :20cm
  • Weight :0.39kg
  • Real feel petals :No

Just so you know

The wire in the stem is tough so you can’t accidentally snap it. But you’ll need something powerful if you want to trim it down. We’ve found long-handled loppers (the ones for pruning shrubs and trees) or wire cutters do the trick.

The wire inside also means you can’t put your stem in water for long or it’ll rust. So if you’re arranging it with real flowers, bend the life-like stem up out of the water.

When it comes to smaller items, we don't hang around.

From our own, white-glove service for delivering larger pieces in the UK and Ireland, to our courier and international partners, rest assured that we’ve done everything we can to make sure your order gets to you on time and in one, perfect piece.

Delivery’s also entirely free if you’re in the UK and spend over £50 (or €100 in Ireland).
