It has a perfect shape. The leaves are so uniform! Love it. There must be some fat roots underground ;)I grow my aloinopsis with the roots raised a little, but mostly because I grow them in small pots and there's no room... With some I'd rather bury it :)
A caudex is developing. As the plant is getting towards the edge of the pot I am approaching the point where I find out about the roots.I have never consciously raised the roots of a plant but I have some seedlings which are good candidates for this treatment.
