Harvesting Aloe Gel Straight from the Plant: Step-by-Step Instructions
If you would like two or more aloe plants, just get one and as it grows you can separate the plant, including a portion of the root, and replanted it. It will form an entirely new plant! I am so doing this, today!
For harvesting the aloe gel, you’ll want to start with a large leaf, preferably thick and at least a foot in length (if harvesting from non-potted aloe; potted plants will obviously be smaller). The thicker the stalk, the more gel it will yield. Ideally you want one that is a deep green, although the plant may be a little lighter if it’s dirty and/or waxy on the outside.
