Separate smaller shoots from the outer section of a parent plant, making sure that root growth is present. Place the shoots in water until ready to plant in moist soil.

When aloe plants are doing well they send up little plantlets along the base of the adult plant. These small plants can be cut off at the base with a sharp knife and planted in cactus soil. If your plant has not put out babies, ensure it is getting enough sunlight and has dry soil.
