I've just aquired an aloe vera plant that is about 10 inches high and totally potbound. It has about 8 'pups' surrounding it. I have tried to separate these from the mother plant but it doesnt seem possible, they look to be actually coming from the base of the mother instead of just being joined by the root system. (I have actually broke off one of the babies whilst trying to ease them all apart, is there any way of saving this one, it broke off cleanly with no root im afraid)
So I wonder if some one could advise me on the best course of action now? It was all in a tiny pot, so would my best option be to just pot the whole thing into a bigger pot? Im just worried as ive heard that pups will kill the mother if left to grow with her.
Thankyou for any advice, the whole plant is sat drying on paper at the moment
Im in the UK so it is an indoor plant!
