Q.After Beheading Aloe And Removing Grown Pups What Do I Do With The Mother Plant?

Zone 08340 | Alteredartgirl added on August 14, 2022 | Answered

I have 2 aloe plants I’ve beheaded and removed the pups by now but I don’t know if I keep the mother or what. Also have a 4 ft climbing aloe that needs beheading. At what height should I chop that?
