Training Aloe Vera

16 years ago

I saw a large species of Aloe on my last trip back to New Zealand. This was an exotic plant which is not easy to find. It was called the "Tree Aloe." It was probably 25-30 feet tall. The trunk had a 2 1/2 foot diameter. About ten feet up it sent out many branches giving it the appearance of an almost regualar big tree.

Now I can't really get ahold of one of those at the moment, but I have the idea of making a smaller scale tree with my Aloe Vera. Will Aloe Vera produce a vertical woody trunk if I keep the pups trimmed back?(that is part 1 of my plan)
