Alex the Aloe Plant
Alex the Aloe Plant is the best roommate ever! He gets along with everyone, never complains, and always finds a solution to every problem you may have.
All About Alex
Place of Birth: Arabian Peninsula (and now our lush greenhouse)
Origin: Alex is part of the Affodil family, which dates back to the 1600’s! Since then, his family has spread out to the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, Indonesia and Mexico.
Favorite Place to Hang: usually just on the couch after a long day of work or anywhere he can catch some rays! After working in a lab 9-5 everyday, he desperately needs his daily dose of Vitamin D.**
(**Real Talk: Alex is a high light plant. This entails a sun-facing window with bright light all day long. He will do best close to a south or east facing window. Plants with this light requirement need a minimum of 5-6 hours of light a day. If you are unsure what way your windows face, take your phone and use the compass app! Point it at the area you would like to place Alex. Please note, obstructions like trees or buildings outside, can cause a considerable decrease in the available light.)
Favorite Drink: Whiskey (likes things on the drier side)
Favorite Food: Avocados
Best Friends: Succulents
Fun Fact: Alex is a friend for life. As soon as he is part of your family, he will always be there for you no matter what.
Care Tip: He likes change! He doesn’t mind traveling every 2-3 years to a new home or even just a new bed!
