This aloe and another both created what I have heard called aerial off-sets (off-set on the flower stem). This particular one formed many months ago. I keep hoping it will start to make some aerial roots, but so far no such luck. It looks like when it gets the size I want I will have to remove it and root it. I assume rooting it is no different than rooting an aloe without roots. Just gently/ slightly into the rooting medium. Leave for one month in bright location, out of direct sunlight. Check to see if there are any roots if there are, slowly increase the amount of water as the roots grow. If it is not rooted yet, check back in two weeks. I have had success doing this in the past. The plant can be quite withered by the time it roots, but it is a successful techique in those instances. Should I do anything different with this one? (I also have another aloe with two aerial off-sets on it.)
This is one has been on the parent plant long enough to have bloomed itself. I love that it is very different looking than the parent plant or any of the root offsets. Those looks exactly like mama, but this one is extremely bumpy and dramatic. I don't want to get it wrong. I really like it.
I plan to continue to leave it on the parent plant as long as possible. I want a nice large plant to root, so it has something to work with when it comes to rooting. I am sure it will root now, but I am in no rush.
