Q.Trying To Grow An Aloe Leaf Cutting But The Roots Have Only Grown 1/2 A Cm In 4 Days With Promoter Is It Still Viable?

Zone 97477 | Anonymous added on April 29, 2021 | Answered

My main plant split a leaf at the base so I used rooting gel and root promoter spray and its workinq but very slowly so slow my roommate whos a gardener said its dead and to throw it away. Now my heart hurts because I dont agree that its dead if its growing roots. Am I right or no? Ive never done this before and know its hard to leaf start aloe but if its working she deserves a fighting chance doesnt she?…
