Grow Your Aloe Vera Plant Collection With This Easy Propagation Trick

In order to pull this trick off, you first need to spot a pup. Look at the dirt in your planter and see if you can see a mini leaf sprouting through the dirt. It will be close to the base of the plant, so if you have a rather large mother plant, don’t be afraid to poke around the rosette-shaped base to see if there is one hiding nearby. Ensure that it is at least 3 inches tall, which means it will be developed enough to survive the removal and replanting. To remove it, first give your plant a thorough watering, which will help you remove the roots from the soil easier. Once soaked, dig out the offshoot by using either your fingers or a small shovel. Just make sure to leave its roots intact so it can successfully root in the new planter.

Leave the pup on a paper towel for a few days, allowing it to callous over. This ensures the leaf won’t be planted soggy, which can cause rot. Once it’s ready, plant it into a small planter. Aim for the pot to be about 2 inches deep so it doesn’t shock the plant with too much space. Make sure the pot is filled with well-draining soil, water it, and place it in front of a window that receives a good amount of indirect sunlight.
