I want to cut a branch from my Aloe plant so that I can pot it and give it to my friend so they can have an Aloe plant also. Is that possible, if so how?

Aloe cuttings have always rooted for me quite easily, here is my method. Take stem cuttings, offsets, or leaf cuttings in spring or summer. Let the cuttings air dry for a few days, and then place cut end down in sterile potting mix. Do not cover with plastic or glass as you do with other cuttings. It will take quite awhile for the roots to really get going, but it will happen. Water sparingly.
