Propagate – Aloe plant

Q: Can you please tell me how to propagate an aloe plant and a Mother-in-law’s Tongue?

A: Make a 1:1 mix of potting soil and perlite. Mix with enough water so that when you squeeze a handful no water comes out. Spread a layer of the mix two inches thick in the bottom of a plastic tub. Make 2″ – 3″ cuttings of your plant leaves. Bury the bottom ends an inch into the soil. Stretch clear kitchen film over the top of the box and place in a sunny window. After two weeks, remove the film. You should have well-rooted cuttings in two months.
