That's nice of you but, I have a few aloes and they grow well enough to take several cuttings annually.
As far as the containers go, that's a good idea. The only thing is that I have so many plants, and they are very close together due to limited space. I'm not sure if there would be room to container all of them, but it's worth looking into. If you still can't find one by spring, and still want one, I'll send you a few
. Have a good one!
Pots being close together needn't be an issue. What is important is finding a container that is just big enough for a pot to stand on. That way, you can still keep your pots close together. Something like this https://www.wmpot.co.uk/store/catalog/fl ... 19_400.jpg

Ideally, they should be waterproof and without holes. You could use a saucer or a little bowl. If you can't buy one of the size that you need, you can improvise a container. Some foods in supermarkets come in their own, little bowls made of glass or ceramic. Things like pies and desserts. You can eat the product and then clean the dish, in order to stand a pot in it. This kind of dish is often exactly the right size to fit a small plant pot. Some are even the right size to fit a medium pot. You could also buy some small, foil trays that are intended for storing food, like these https://www.bluestarpackaging.co.uk/ekmp ... -2-500.jpg
They can be bent to fit exactly around a pot or, they can be used as they are. Bending them means that they will not take up much space and therefore prevent you from keeping pots very close together.
