Aloe inermis and Aloe eremophila are a drought resistance species habituating plateaus and high mountains. These two plants can survive outside their natural habitation and they can be irrigated under basin or drip irrigation systems. The plant sap can be collected locally at noon by cutting leaves from the bases beyond 2.5 cm of the stem. The mean dry sap production is ranged between 0.37 – 0.47 gm/Leaf for the species Aloe inermis and Aloe eremophila respectively. Statistical analysis of the dry sap production revealed a significant difference between means of the two species at 5% of level which the best one is Aloe eremophila. There is no significant difference between leaf sap means the production of cutting in April , June and December. Interaction between species Aloe inermis and cutting in December showed significant difference of leaf sap mean production with June and April while no significant difference between the two means of April and June at 5% of level at the revised least significant difference. April and June are the best months for sap exudation from Aloe inermis. However, there is no interaction between Aloe eremophila and cutting in April, June and December at the same level.
