So earlier this morning I mentioned it’s the time of year to take your final cactus cuts. And I thought I should also mention that it’s OK to take some succulent cuts all the way into winter.
For instance, Aeoniums. And Aloes, too!
Fun fact: Did you know that the stoma of the aloe leaf are often sunken, and surrounded by well-developed lobes?
1. Stoma 5. Vascular Bundle
2. Cuticle 6. Water Storage Tissue
3. Upper Epidermis 7. Palisade Tissue
4. Palisade Tissue 8. Lower Epidermis
And from Aloes: The Genus Aloe By Tom Reynolds
