I just couldn’t leave it there with a long root reaching desperately out from the bottom of the pot.
That would be like ignoring a drowning person’s hand reaching out of the water.
I did not know that its name, Rooikappie, meant ‘Red Ridinghood’ in Afrikaans until I looked it up on-line.
I brought the aloe home and did some trimming before repotting it.
These little pieces will be left to harden off for a few days and then rooted. (Free plants.)
Little Rooikappie looks happier all ready.
My what big teeth she has!
