Propagating Aloe Vera Sprouts


The two Aloe Vera plants I purchased three years ago have, for some reason or another, have started sprouting new growth like crazy over this spring. So instead of having the Mother plant start to bloom, I had heard if you remove and transplant the new sprouts it slows down the blooming process. So that's what I did... time for a new plant to learn how to propagate.

The first step was I prepared some smaller containers and I had a few 28-ounces cans from making spaghetti sauce cleaned and ready. I filled them with a combination of specific succulent soil, Coco Coir soil with perlite and made sure there was good drainage. Then I carefully separated the sprouts with their roots intact and applied some root growth. I used the CloneX that I use for making clones of my cannabis plants. This is my go-to root growth preference as I've never had a problem with it in all the years I've been growing cannabis.


I applied the CloneX to the roots and carefully placed them in the prepared (and moistened) soil. I did this transplant back in the beginning of April and they are flourishing. I'll have to make a few more as the sprouts on the Mother Aloe have continued to grow. I had pans to give one each of the newly propagated plants to my mom and daughters on Mother's Day; but with our "Shelter In Place" order here the plants are still sitting in my windowsill awaiting their new homes.

Those plants are looking healthy, splitting them does no harm to my knowledge except give you a couple more plants to grow.

Over here I use clay pot type containers, some loose stones in the bottom to ensure drainage, mixed sand and compost then water twice a week in direct sun and heat which they thrive on.

Keep going soon the plants will be with your Mom and Daughter to enjoy. Have a wonderful weekend.
