Aloe Vera Suckers

Aloe vera is a herbaceous perennial plant of the Liliaceae family that is farmed for its succulent leaves, which are used in both food and medicine.

The slender, robust stem of the aloe vera plant supports a rosette of fleshy, lanceolate leaves with a serrated border and tiny white teeth.
The leaves are gray-green or pale green in hue and may have white flecks on them.
The plants produce a noticeable inflorescence made up of pendulous yellow flowers tightly clustered on a spike that can reach a height of 90 cm (35 in).
The plant itself can reach a height of 1 m (3 ft) and, with proper care, can live for up to 100 years.

Propagation of Aloe vera Suckers  
Aloe vera can be grown from seed, however, suckers that the mother plant quickly produces are the easiest way to reproduce the plant.
The suckers are frequently called “pups” by people. By carefully pulling the mother plant apart and locating the place of attachment, the pups should be carefully severed from the main root.
A sharp knife should be used to separate the young plant from the parent. When puppies have numerous sets of leaves, they can be safely removed.

The young seedlings should be firmly watered after being put in their respective pot.
Avoid overwatering to encourage the development of new roots.
Provide each plant with its own pot, or plant many plants outdoors at least 60 cm (24 in) apart.

General upkeep and Care of aloe vera suckers
Although aloe plants are typically extremely easy to care for, it’s important to prevent overwatering.
Before the next watering, the plants should dry out after receiving thorough irrigation.
Examine the soil before watering.

For older, more established plants, let the soil dry to a depth of 7.5 to 10 cm (3-4 in), or 3.5 to 5 cm (1-2 in), for younger plants.
Additionally, although aloe plants need a lot of light, placing them in direct sunlight might be hazardous; therefore, it is better to place potted aloe in a room with plenty of natural light.
Keep in mind that the leaves will start to turn brown if the plant receives too much sun.
