Sadly, I have never had luck with propagating aloe leaves. I feel that the moisture in the leaves prevents it from forming any additional roots. Let's see if @KelsiBriana has any thoughts on this.

@KariSamuel I agree, aloes don't often propagate by leaf cuttings. Plants like aloes, haworthia, and gasteria like to propagate themselves by creating their own pups, which are often very easy to remove and repot on their own. 🙂

Its possible but very rarely happens.. It makes pups so as soon as you get pups let them get a decent size to repot. Btw patience is key.

I'm sorry I have no experience with this. But it seems that the others could already help you 👍🏽😊

I knew that aloes needed the pups to propagate, but now, I know from @KelsiBriana that I can put the haworthia and gasteria in the same category. @quantumrobin good luck with propagating other types of succulents!
