The big question has always been what to do with the new heads: leave them all attached or risk removing them. Let's face it a multi head aloe polyphylla would look amazing, my main plant is spectacular enough on it's own, without needing multiple heads.
So a multi-head plant is a given, 2 or 3 heads will be left attached to the old plant. The question has been can the other heads be removed and re-rotted. I had heard that aloe polyphylla can be tricky to re-root, which goes against most succulents. A bit of research suggests that they will root ok, so now for some tests.
There is one little head slightly separate to the rest, so a perfect test subject.
It was cut off with a little bit of the main plant
Someone pointed out that this photo looks like a mole with a very fancy hat. Now they have said that, it's all I can see. Anyway, it will be dried off for a couple of days then planted up and hopefully we'll see roots. If this one works, I can start taking other heads off to give me a few more plants to play with.
