Yes Jenn well in a way.. Cleaned them up and poured the liquid into ice cubes and froze makes easy use cooling down a burn cube plus if need to mix in a drink or use in a salve etc it makes it last longer if you dont have access to mature aloe cus only mature aloe has the real good stuff in it but younger aloe does work if needed uh sorry ranting lol @jennlamaye

I'm just in 💚 with this one!! #aloe can't wait to learn how to use and create with this plant. Haven't had an aloe since I was a kid.... got this in June, has almost doubled in size. ( I may have cut too soon and possible dehydration but she is growing so strong again) #loveyourplant. How do I know when I can cut them.... or should I be already? Kinda confused.. thanks☀️

@jenx1 my experience with Aloe in my area South Texas Border, it grows really quickly ! And I have to Shaded in summer from 3 digit temps ! And in case of frost! If any! from that too! My personal opinion is you should wait till you have a little more growth on it and what I mean is more plants growing from that main one before you start cutting! I cut mine as I needed for burns, scrapes, small cuts etc. You cut a leaf , slice it lengthwise and remove the pulp inside and that's what I use!

@happygardener2017 thank you so much! That was pretty much what I was thinking. My daughter wants to cut it for every little scrape she has. She is so excited about it too:) when the aloe's sisters start coming I have a feeling she's gonna be a big plant.

@jenx1n I hope my personal info will be useful! Someone else might have other ideas too! And also when you have more plants in that pot separate some and make new pots ! 😘 Have a great afternoon Jen !
