: I have a huge aloe Vera plant and would like to start a few more off of it. i have been told that I can take an arm of it and plant it and it will grow but every time I do this it dies. I love aloe's but I can not seem to grow any other than what I buy. Any help in starting a new plant would be very much apperciated. Thankyou.
Some aloes form pups all by themselves and others don't do it often or at all. What you can do is remove a leaf, let sit on top of the soil, when the soil is dry, and it will form a callous where the cut was made in three or four days. Then you can plant the leaf.
