Answer: It's usually best to wait until spring to repot houseplants. Your aloe will slow down its growth when the days get shorter and the light isn't quite so bright. It needs to rest a bit during the winter months. When it begins its growth spurt in the spring months, you can divide the plant and repot. When it's time to divide it, lay your aloe on its side and divide by slicing through the root mass, taking some roots with rosettes of leaves attached. Repot each of these divisions and keep them in a protected place for a few weeks until they get over their shock. They should put out new growth within 2-3 weeks.
