Good afternoon.
I have a mature Aloe Vera plant that is growing pups straight from the stem. Those are not like the pups that grow in the soil next to the plant but pups that grow straight from the mother stem without their own set of roots. What should I do about them? can I cut them off? Are they hurting the mother plant?
Thanks for the advice

Welcome!

You can cut them off but they won't root easily, if at all. They won't hurt the mother plant and may make for a very pretty and interesting plant.
