I need to get pictures but I have a decent sized aloe plant that is getting fairly large. Ive had it now about 6-8 months at the most and got it from walmart. It did poor at first but after a transplant from the pot it came with to one with dry plant soil and light gravel bottom its done great and has got about 16 leaves on it all nice sturdy and thick very full of gel. Ive moved it to a larger pot every time it looked like it was getting rootbound and started to brown and its always gone back to its nice dark rich green.
Now its budding its got 2 little new plants coming up both with about 3-4 leaves just little things about 3 inches tall with it now. Is it best to remove them to a new pot or let them stay. What is the advantage or disadvantage to each decision?
Its in a plastic pot now with holes in the bottom with some light rocks just covering the bottom then soil and its growing great and healthy and the tips are not drying out and its doing great in this drought we are having with water as needed. Ill get pics ASAP just for show.
Ok got pics. Not the best quality its only a old 3MP fujifilm fine pix digital cam.
On the plant the leaves with missing sections are where animals and such tried to mess with it and I had to cut the area out cause it wasy trying to die with it left alone.
The little ones
And I found whats been keeping me up by my window at night. I got 2 little creatures making home of my plant.
Hope this helps with anything and hope you like my plant.
