Once You Pup, You Just Can't Stop.

I know I've told you about my aloe plants before. Several times, really. Even recently, when I separated and repotted (almost) all of them because they'd produced so many aloe pups that they were shoving each other out of the pot.

Part of the reason why I chose to repot them when I did was that they actually seemed to be slowing down a bit. I spent hours typing different variations of, "When do aloes produce pups?" and "What season do aloe pups appear?" into Google, to no avail. I know that aloes generally pup when they're between 8-15" tall and in good health, and some sources I've seen indicate spring as the most likely season to find new aloe offshoots, but my plants don't really seem to care what the internet has to say about their reproductive habits. I've found an aloe pup or two around short plants in the dead of winter. They dngaf.

Anyhow, this is all to say that I appear to have been very wrong about my plants "slowing down" any, as gauged by the little green bean they popped out yesterday...


Looks like I'm gonna need more pots.

Update: Yeah... I'm gonna need more pots.
