Hello!

I have an aloe plant that is currently growing some new leaves. I've tried to research if these are pups, but from what I've found I'm not sure if they are. The "pups" don't look like they have roots and they seem to be growing from the plant itself rather than from the soil.

Does anyone know what's going on? Also, what breed is this aloe? I think it may be too big to be considered a Zebra Haworthia since it's about four inches tall.

Thanks in advance!

Yes, those are Haworthias, just allow the offsets to grow some more. You can cut off the offsets at the base of the mommy plant, it may have already pink and white roots of its own already. Sometimes, offset maybe connected by stem-like structure, a stolon, you can also cut it off, to separate offset, but best to wait till offset is about half the size of mommy plant.
