How do I separate aloe at the root?
I have an aloe plant and it’s starting to get out of hand. I need to separate them so that I can re-pot them. How do I separate them at the roots?

Answer by the truth
Literally cut the plant in half and transplant the other half into another pot.
Line the bottom of each pot with a few inches of stone for drainage and back-fill with your chosen potting mix and that’s it.
Some of the plant will die but both of your new plants will live on to get out of hand once again.

Put the stem into a pot of pure perlite, place it somewhere warm and bright (not baking hot sun) and do not water until the new leaves start growing again.

Then repot into a new soil mix after a month or so of new root growth. Whatever you use, add 50% perlite. Place the Aloe somewhere warm and sunny with fresh air. Outside is perfect for the summer.

Repot every 2 years with new soil and a larger pot. During the winter indoors, water the plant MUCH less often. Let the leaves stay soft. Plants are most susceptible to rot when they are dormant.

try it, it helps!!

Can an Aloe Vera plant have new growth and root rot at the same time?

Can an Aloe Vera plant have new growth and root rot at the same time?
Everyone tells me my Aloe plant has root rot, but it also has new growth. Is it possible for an Aloe Vera plant to have root rot and new growth at the same time?

Answer by Marilyn
Yes. The aloe vera leaf is capable of developing roots when separated from the main plant. This is how many new plants are started. I would separate the healthy tissue from the unhealthy tissue and put it in a new pot with fresh potting soil. Then throw away the soil and unhealthy plant parts and sterilize the pot before reuse. If you want to encourage root formation on leaves without roots dip the cut ends in “rooting powder” available at any garden center like Lowe’s, Home Depot, or Fred Meyer.

Can you root an aloe vera plant?

Can you root an aloe vera plant?
My aloe plant is about 2 feet tall, and it’s winding around. It’s to the point where it’s breaking and I was wondering if it’s possible to root an aloe vera plant.

It has some sentimental value and I’d love to save it.

Oh, yeah. Mine’s in a pot on the sill of a north-facing window in Washingotn state, so it doesn’t get all that much sun, but it’s still huge.

Easily. Just separate the small shoots on the outside to the root and replant. Do it by hand. I suck at propagating plants but I could cover my yard with a single aloe plant.
