How to Propagate Aloe ‘Doran Black’
Aloe ‘Doran Black’ is a prolific propagator, growing many offsets. You can also grow it from stem cuttings and seed.
Aloe ‘Doran Black’ 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.
Simply take a cutting from the stem using a sharp, sterilized knife or pair of scissors. Allow it to dry out for a day or two, and then place the cutting in well-draining soil. Water when the soil is completely dry.
‘Doran Black’ can be grown from seeds harvested from the flower pod or purchased online. It can be difficult to grow from seed. Begin to sow your seeds in the summer, in a warm place. Keep soil damp, but not too wet, until seeds germinate.
