Hello! I have a two-year-old aloe vera that I am desperately trying to take good care of so I really would love advice from anyone.

I noticed that two of the leaves have developed this small yellow rash, which grew bigger in the past few days. I originally thought it was sunburn because I recently let it out, and even though it wasn't in direct sunlight, everything turned brown so I let it back in (It rarely becomes 80 degrees at this time in NYC.) The leaves are green again, but I am concerned with this growing rash. What is this? Is it harmless or do I need to remove these leaves?

On a side note, my plant has produced 5 cute offspring, and I plan to propagate them, so what are some good tips or links that I could use?

Please feel free to comment on how my aloe vera looks and if it needs anything.
I hope I'm not asking too much for these two questions haha, I am just concerned for my Aloe so again I just need advice. Any help is appreciated, thanks!

Fellow Aloe Vera lover,

Mama got a little sunburned. Opps, 🙊!!!
When pups are big enough to grab, twist tell they break off.
Let them sit to scab over, a week or two, in shade won't hurt.
Set them up right on same barely moistened soil, use some toothpicks to support them.
Mist them every 3 or 4 days, till they root.
Then water them on same schedule as mommy. 👍👍👍

Thank you for your help! I already pulled all five pups, but one of them came off with no root! I also already planted them in their own new soil, so I hope it's not too late to let it scab over, (or maybe I should just leave them, there?). I also hope the one without roots will make it too!

It's Ok that you didn't let them scab over, there perty hardy compared to alot of Cati. Just don't bury them. Roots will form on the one with no roots.
