How to Propagate Aloe brevifolia “Short-leaved Aloe”
Aloe brevifolia “Short-leaved Aloe” is a prolific propagator, growing many offsets. While you may think that you should be able to propagate “Short-leaved Aloe” from leaves, this is not the case, and you may find your leaves rotting.
Aloe brevifolia “Short-leaved Aloe” will produce small offsets, sprouting up around the base of the plant. Simply pull these up and allow the offsets to dry for one to two days before replanting.
If propagating from seed, sow in a well-draining soil in the fall. You can grow Sedum seeds outdoors if you live in an zone above 9a. If you live in a cooler area, you can begin sowing indoors under a grow light.
