Houseplant Thats a Cactus
A strong, emerald, striking succulent with tall(ish), pointed leaves that appear as thick spikes. This cactus resembling plant has light green specs thrown across the arms that give it the appearance of sprinkles. It also has actual spikes though, so be cautious when touching it. Aloe is generally cultivated in warmer places like Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California and does best in dry and warm climates. Be careful when watering this one, it doesn’t need much.
Truth Behind the Name
The namesake of ‘Aloe Vera’ is rooted with definition (pun intended). The word ‘aloe’ comes from the Arabic word ‘alloeh’ which in english means, “shining bitter substance”. ‘Vera’, which is Latin, means ‘veritas’ and translates to “truth”. This fits in with aloe in that the vera plant is a very bitter edible.
Pass It On
Propagating these is simple. Besides all the leaf gel’s helpful healing properties, if you care for your aloe plant the right way…you’ll be rewarded. Eventually little ‘pups’ or babies will begin to pop out by the bottom of the plant. This makes it the perfect soothing, yet practical gift for anyone. Once the propagations sprout, move them to another pot. They will most likely crowd the remaining Aloe Vera plants. Once the pups have grown enough, they’re easy to move on.
