Welcome to this week’s Teacher Tuesdays! During this week of quarantine and solitude, we have been enjoying our time playing in the dirt and taking inventory of the plants that we have. Some of our plants are doing amazing during this Spring Equinox! One of our thriving plants this March 2020 is ALOE. We have many different types of Aloe- see our galleries for more pictures!
I am excited to watch this pup grow. She is the biggest of the bunch we have.
Current inventory: 4 Golden Tooth Aloe (with pups)
Aloe nobilis (Golden Toothed Aloe) – An evergreen rosette-forming succulent that suckers profusely, creating a large grouping to 18 inches tall of fleshy green leaves that have a tint of rose color on the tips and yellow to white, sharp but flexible teeth running along the edges with a few in spots on the inside of the leaves.
Note to self: THE TEETH ARE ACTUALLY REALLY SHARP AND YOU WILL CUT YOURSELF ALL WILLY NILLY
Play with dirt and use safe practices! A few hours of organizing soil has uplifted our mood so much. What a great way to curb our anxiety and be creative with the plants that we already have.
