I recently acquired an aloe plant from a friend. It is in a large pot and has three very large plants in it and the rest of the soil surface is covered in smaller plants popping up. One of the large plants has grown up and over the side of hte pot and needs to be transplanted. There are no leaves on the stem/stalk at the base because it has grown up out of the soil and the bottom leaves have long since died. I was told to just snap the thick stalk off at the surface of the soil and repot it. can anyone tell me if this is correct or if it will result in killing the plant??? thanks.
