Wondering if you can grow aloe roots in an aquarium. . .

IzabelB

Ive been doing some research on common house plants that are able to grow in an aquarium, so far I plan to propagate pothos and basil in my tank. I’m also starting an experiment to see if moss can grow whilst completely submerged in water. So I’ve looked at some sources and the general answer to “can you grow aloe in water” is “no” but i found a few people on youtube who have successfully grown healthy aloe in water. Just wondering if anyone has tried this or know if it would work, I don‘t have a green thumb and only have one aloe plant in the house. I don’t want to try it just to kill it. Thanks beforehand for any replies!

Definitely not submerged, and probably not if it's roots-only. Aloe is a succulent, a desert plant that's adapted for dry conditions. An aquarium is about as far as you can get from "dry," and an over-watered succulent tends to rot.
