Aloe can be propagated in different ways. Often the plant forms foothills at the base, which sometimes even form their own roots. Shoots on a stem higher in the plant also occur. These suckers can be cut loose with a sharp knife. The best time for this is July or August. The cuttings are then allowed to dry for a few days. It is also possible to take cuttings from the leaves. After the leaf to be cut on the thickest part has been cut, the top to be cut must dry for several weeks. As soon as the cut is sealed with wound tissue after a few weeks, the cutting can be potted.
When potting, choose a generous pot immediately, and as soil a mixture of 1/3 potting soil, 1/3 sand and some fine gravel for good permeability. Then do not water for the first few days and finally proceed to very sparing pouring. If the shoots do not yet have their own roots, then the first time is even better not to pour at all, but only to be cut. As soon as the cuttings show growth, careful pouring can be started.
The period after the cuttings have been removed is also a good time to repot the mother plant, in order to guarantee good regrowth. After cutting off the cuttings, the main stem also shows cuts. These wounds must first dry for a few days before watering for the first time, even if the mother plant is not repotted.
The third method of propagation is from seed. After flowering, the plant forms seed pods. These must ripen at the plant, after which the seed can be harvested. It can be sown in a mixture of cutting soil, and covered with a thin layer of compost. Soil temperature 21 degrees Celsius.
