Description:

Aloe dichotoma (also known as “quiver tree”) is a very peculiar plant that can live over 80 years, it takes its name from the Bushmen people, who use the branches and leaves to build quivers to stock their arrows. This species can grow up to 7 m, the trunk and branches are whitish due to a dust produced by the plant to protect itself from the sun. On the contrary, the leaves can be green or tending to navy blue and are narrow and pointed with sharp ends. The buds of yellow flowers that usually bloom during the summer can be compared to asparagus, both in shape and flavor, and are a source of nutrition for different types of birds.

Plant care:

It requires a lot of light all year round, however avoiding direct sunlight especially during the hottest hours of the day.

It is preferable to keep it at mild temperatures, but never below 8 °C, for this reason it is recommended to shelter it during the winter period.

Water moderately only when the soil is completely dry. It is enough to water the plant once every two weeks in spring and summer, once every two months in autumn and completely suspend watering in winter.

A well-draining and at the same time nourishing soil is an optimal solution. A mix of 60% of peat and 40% of inert materials is a perfect combination.

They do not need frequent fertilization, it is sufficient to dilute the fertilizer with watering once a year.
