I've had this aloe for about a year now. I'm guessing it's a Namibian Partridge, but I'm not 100% positive. Anyway, why hasn't it pupped yet? None of my plants have. They're all in a south-facing window and I follow watering instructions pretty well

I'm not sure your plant is an aloe, it could be a Gasteraloe (hybrid). In any case, some plants are solitary, others make occasional offsets, and a few are pup factories. You have to wait and watch to know what your plant is going to do. It certainly looks like it's doing well. You might consider upping the pot size at some point in the near future. But keep doing whatever you're doing, because the plant looks to be thriving.

Thank you! I was actually about to repot it. And I remember that it was labeled as Aloe at Walmart, but you can't exactly trust Walmart...

Or maybe it's still just a pup itself? Unless you know exactly which aloe it is you won't know what growth habit it has. I personally think one rosette'd plants are cooler.
