IMG_0507|374x500 IMG_0506|666x500 I kept this one in a one gal. pot (experimental) just for you @Laurap, so, yes it’s possible to clone, delay there growth and use clones when ready. Most of these clones where delayed due to lack of room indoors. .

It looks like aloe, there are many different types aloe. They all contain salicylic acid in the gel, that’s what helps with the cloning my friend looks like your good @basementstealth

I’ve never done it that way before, I just smear some aloe goo on the end of my clone and stick it straight into soil, I’ve had great results.

And you trim leaf tips? Water as usual?

Trimming leaves allows plant to retain moisture and concentrate on making roots, my friend @basementstealth and I like keeping soil moist but not to wet. After your first successful cloning attempt it becomes a thing of second nature, good luck my friend.

Ive read some growers simply put a fresh clipping in a cup of water until roots develop.

Hey, Brother! Long time no see!

I didn’t have luck using it as a cloning gel, but it does great as a feeding suppliment for me!

She gets an aloe leaf’s insides with every feeding. I did use Tiger Bloom and Big Bud a couple times, but the rest of her feedings were runoff from the worm bed mixed with the aloe and some molasses.

Aloes are still kicking along…

Sure wish you could get to the other side! Miss you, Brother!
