Tree Aloe Info: Learn About Growing A Tree Aloe
About Tree Aloe Info:
The name “Tree” means that it grows from one root. But it does not mean that it is a tree only because its roots are very small, but rather because its leaves are like branches or leaves. Its scientific name is Aralipe japonica .
It belongs to the family of trees called cacti (Cactus). There are many varieties of the same species. Some of them have white flowers, some with red, others with yellow, and so on. However all these varieties share the common feature that they grow from a single root system. They do not branch out into separate plants; instead they form a network of interconnected roots which are connected to each other and to their parent plant through long tendrils called stolons.
