aloe vera

Post by Phillip Ster » Tue, 31 Oct 1995 04:00:00



I have a large aloe vera plant (30" diameter x 15" tall) that is
listing severely to one side.  This makes the pot very unstable and is
not the look I prefer.

How can I correct the problem?  I have tried repotting the plant, but
it is set in its listing ways.

I think I once read that aloe vera could be propogated by cutting the
top off and placing in soil.  Perhaps I could just cut above the kink
in the plant and repot the straight top portion.

Any advice would be appreciated.

I have an Aloe Vera plant as well.  I believe it's pretty young, les then
a year, but it has been growing at an almost visable rate for the past few
months.  It is probably about 25" wide and 13" or so high.  I was
wondering when and under what conditions I will start to see offshoots and
what I need to do with them to create more plants.

Any help greatly appreciated.
