I noticed that my aloe plant outgrew its container and sprouted some babies. That means it’s time to repot it! Since I’m moving it to a larger container, I’m going to propagate the mother and split off the babies.
If you’ve never done this before, it’s really easy to do. And I’ll have a bunch of new air purifying houseplants to bring indoors when the growing season ends.
If you aren’t familiar with how to care for aloe plants, they are very easy to grow. Place them in a bright sunny window and be sure not to over water them. Aloe plants purify the air of formaldehyde and benzene, which is found in varnishes, floor finishes, and detergents.
Do you have aloe plants that need to be divided too? It is super easy to propagate them so grab the following supplies and let’s get started.
