In my school corridor many ornamental plants are kept. One day me
and my friend was passing by the corridor. I saw a plant that looked
very different from others. It looked very watery and its leaves were
very thick with thorns at edges. In my curiosity I plucked a bit of the
leaf to test what was inside.
Uh hhhhh! A jelly like transparent liquid splashed on to my hand. I
looked inside the leaf, very different it was. Inside it was a jelly like
transparent liquid. The leaf pretended to be a glass filled with cold ice
in it. Of course the jelly had a cooling effect on my hand.
My friend informed me that it was “ ALOE VERA” ,a verity of cactus. She also told me that this plant is of great herbal
value. The jelly liquid inside it is used in most of the soaps and moisturizers. It was new information to me.
Now I am looking forward to get a one in my garden
