Tyler Brooks tweeted a picture of a gift that he bought his girlfriend of four yeras, Kai Hawkins. It wasn't your average gift. There weren't any chocolates, flowers or stuffed animals.
He bought her a single aloe vera leaf.
Brooks told BuzzFeed News that he bought the aloe because Kai is really into her skin and hair care. She always wanted to grow an aloe plant, so he made it happen.
His viral tweet has also become a thread for how to grow and take care of aloe plants.

No..it's Aloe Vera. You can use that plant for basically anything for your body, acne remover, healing cuts, etc..— . (@wowissabree) September 4, 2017
You can also plant just that leaf and make more aloe— grace (@grace_sheckler) September 4, 2017
This bad boy started from just a leaf! pic.twitter.com/U4l6Xb3Hqv— grace (@grace_sheckler) September 4, 2017
It's best with a leaf that is taken from the base of the plant and as in tact as possible, but place in sandy soil and water infrequently— grace (@grace_sheckler) September 4, 2017
