    Our experts don't think you'd have much success with this. It's better to separate the "pups" for propagating an aloe. Here's an article: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/aloe-vera/aloe-plant-propagation.htm

    However, if you want to try, let the cut tip callous over for a few days then insert it in cactus soil. Here are more instructions:
