Q.When dividing an aloe plant, can I separate larger stems?
My aloe plant has been growing strong for about four years now and has two major stems (as well as many pups that I still have to separate). But the plant is leaning to one side as one of the stems is larger. I don’t overwater my plant and it sees adequate sunlight regularly. Am I able to separate the two main stems?

Generally, the smaller plantlets transplant the best. The older they get, the more they would rather not be disturbed. Do you turn the container so each side gets sun? If not, that will help with the leaning.
