Each oblong leaf is +-5cm broad at the base and +- 30cm long.
The scientific name 'dichotoma' refers to the forked branches ('dichotomous' means 'forked')
May reach an age of over 80 years and a height of approximately 7 metres.
An A. dichotoma with few branches may resemble A. pillansii in general appearance, but is easily distinguished by A. pillansii's much smaller rosettes and erect leaves. May also resemble A. ramosissima - the difference being the absence of a main trunk/stem.
