The soil was retrieved in lab room 104 of STC from an Aloe plant in the back by the window sill.
Moist and rich in black and brown color
Cool and Damp
Soil was initially covered with grass and needles from the Evergreen tree.
Naming NotesOnce I had adopted "Aloe" from Ganishah I noticed that there were three different plaque morphologies on the plate and I chose the plaque that seemed to be isolated by itself which so happened to be the third different plaque morphology, therefore Aloe III was discovered.
