: I have a fairly good sized Aloe Vera plant that threw off a runner last year with 2 little baby plants attached to the end. I never did anything with them and am wondering if I can now cut them and plant them. If so, do I just cut the babies off or do I cut the runner??

: I thought she was a healthy plant until I read that when the leaves lay down it's bad. But this year she gave me a flower and it's very healthy and absolutely beautiful.

: Please help!!

Hi Lisa,
My aloe finally bloomed this year too. It was wonderful. This site explains how to care for your aloe and how to propagate. Just cut the 'pup' off. This site explains how to do it and what to look for.
