Hi. I'm Marci Degman the aspiring gardener. And today, we're going to learn how to split an aloe vera plant. Now, I fortunately inherited this little pot with all these little baby plants. So, instead of just transplanting them all, I just let them keep multiplying and then I move them into pots and they grow in to nice large plants. So, what I'm going to do now, is I'm just going to kind of pull, as you can see that they kind of grow really shallow on the top of the ground. They don't have a whole lot of roots. So, it's just very easy to just pull up on it, until you kind of see where it is and you just cut it off. And there you go, you have what doesn't even really appear to be a root, but this will turn into a plant. So, what I'm going to do is just put that into some soil. And what I've done here is I've mixed part sand and part potting mix. Because you do want to have really well drained soil. even though you do water aloe vera. They're succulent plants, but they do like water. You just don't want them to sit in a lot of really wet soil. So, this pot will be fine for quite a while. At some point, I can probably put it into a larger pot if I want to grow one large plant. Otherwise it'll just kind of multiply like this, into a bunch of small ones. So, it just depends on what you want it to do. But this is kind of my little nurse plant pot there. And that's all it takes to split up and transplant an aloe vera.
