Back in August aloe purple flush was my favourite plant of the week. (Post can be found here). I mentioned at the time that the only problem with the plant was that it doesn't produce many offsets. During the 6 or more years since purchase, it has only produced one.
I have been avoiding splitting it, one of those times when you know it is going to be fine, but worry anyway. A couple of professional gardeners / friends came over on Saturday (Note to self, think about the state of the garden before spontaneously inviting people like this over). The succulent fan among them loved this plant as well and agreed that potting up may produce more offsets. Yesterday evening it was time to re-pot it and to see if it could be split. The pot turned out to pretty much pure root, so it took longer than expected to tease out the roots. Once that was done it was quite easy to pry them apart.
Now they have more space, hopefully there will be a few more offsets.
