Plant Experimentation: Aloe Saponaria Pups, Day 5.

The four aloe saponaria pups are doing fine. They are in pots, inside, in cactus potting mix. Since some already had roots, I don’t expect much trouble from them.

In fact, I think – THINK – that the two pups in pot 1 may already be making some positive changes. It appears that there may be a complete leaf coming up through the middle of one of them. Since these had been run over by the lawn mower on multiple occasions, any sign of growth is a positive thing.

Here is the plant in pot 1:

It is the plant on the bottom that has the leaf in the middle. It does also seem that both are sitting higher in the pots than they originally were. I am not sure if this is due to the soil settling or perhaps growth under the soil.

Here is pot 2:

Since it’s been a few days since I had potted them, I took both pots out to the front porch today and watered. I let them sit out there in the sun until the pot had finished draining, and then brought them both back inside.
