I’ve been regrowing the roots on my #TigerToothAloe for a couple of months. When I was new to succulents, I thought just plain succulent soil with no amendments was sufficient and I ended up with root rot all over the place 🤦🏻‍♀️ Once I learned that lesson, I started this journey and they’ve been growing so fast lately! The last couple of weeks, they’ve probably doubled. So cool 🤗🌿💚 She’s almost ready to go back into her pot! Except this time, she’ll be in terracotta 🪴 #SucculentSquad #SucculentLove #Succulents #Aloe #RootPorn #NewGrowth #HappyPlants #PlantsMakePeopleHappy #PlantAddict #PlantTherapy #babevila

Tell me more! I just repotted a similar succulent but the roots aren’t very strong. Should I place her in water or how did achieve these results? Thank you :)
@BabeVila Shannon and the amendment is…. Drum roll… we are waiting lol… 😝
@HelpfulRustyfig if the roots aren’t strong, I definitely recommend water to grow/strengthen them as well as a product from We the Wild called Grow. It’s concentrated worm castings you can add to your water when you water your plants. It’s making all my plants explode with growth and I credit it with the faster growth of my aloe roots! No im not sponsored lol just telling everyone about it! As for the soil, I learned succulents/cacti soil mixed with grit and sand and lots of perlite and/or lava rocks is the ticket to happy plants. They like to dry out within 48 hours of watering so I do a ratio of 1 part succulent soil, 1 part perlite, and 2 parts tiny rocks (I get the bags of small rocks from the dollar tree, they work great). @CourtlyKingfern
