Hi there -
I have a bunch of "baby" Aloe plants that arose vegetatively from their
mother plants. For some reason, these baby plants have no roots - there are
nodes where roots can grow from, but no roots are present now. I noticed
this when I pulled a few from their pots. Does anyone know what
soil/fertilizer/etc. will promote root growth in both baby and older Aloe
Weeks ago, I potted a few adult Aloe plants that did not have any roots in
some Hyponex All-purpose potting soil. I just took them out and saw NO
roots. Is this kind of soil not very good? Should I have added fertilizer?
The plant is very much alive - it just doesn't have any roots. I have
watered it when necessary, but still no roots.
I am aware of auxin as a hormone that promotes rooting. Will this and/or
other chemicals/soil types help these Aloes?
