Plant Adaptations: Aloe Vera

  • Posted on April 30, 2012 at 1:09 am

Aloe Vera exhibits several of the adaptations we studied in class – cuticle, succulence, mycorrhiza. These adaptations help it to conserve and store its water as well as making it easier to obtain. Aloe has developed these adaptations to enable it to survive in the harsh environment where it originated – Africa. The plant in the movie is from my room, I tried cutting open one of leaves to show the gooey inside to show how it stores water, but it didn’t come out too well in the picture. Peter Litman
