New rosettes of Aristaloe aristata form around a well-growing parent via suckers or root offshoots. Such growth occurs either via stem stolons above-ground or from root suckers as in this species.
Separating these rosettes furnishes vegetatively propagated new plants with identical genetic attributes as the parent plant, unlike seed plants. Or they may be left unmolested in the hands of nature to keep shaping these attractive assemblies (Van Wyk and Smith, 2003).
