Aloe Vera - How to divide pups from mother plant?

16 years ago

I have a large Aloe Vera and there is at least 5 or 6 pups of various height. I've come to understand that it is wise to divide the pups from the mother plant, but how do you do that?

I read somewhere that you should lay the whole plant on the side and carefully divide the pups, but my plant is so big I can't do that. I think it would break in half if I moved it.

Is there any way to remove the pups directly from the pot?
