Similarly, you may ask, how do you propagate spiral aloe?
Use a sharp knife to cut an outer leaf off a mature aloe polyphylla plant. Aloe plants will sometimes produce offsets, or baby plants, at the base, and these can also be used to propagate an aloe polyphylla plant. To grow an offset, simply slip your fingers around the offset and pull it free from the mother plant.
Furthermore, is aloe vera a bryophyte? Succulent plants, such as this aloe, store water in their enlarged fleshy leaves, stems, or roots, as shown in this split aloe leaf. This allows them to survive in arid environments.
Secondly, what do spiral aloe seeds look like?
They are tiny, grayish brown to black and flat. Seeds that are light-colored or white are not ready to harvest and will not germinate. Seeds are found in dried pods on the plant and need to be extracted by splitting the pod.
How do you care for a spiral aloe plant?
Water moderately when in growth from spring to early autumn and very sparingly when dormant. Apply a balanced liquid fertilizer 2 or 3 times in the growing season. Spiral Aloe is great for beds and borders, rock gardens, slopes, succulent gardens or Mediterranean gardens. It is great in decorative containers too.
