What should I do with my overgrown Aloe Vera?

13 years ago

My tiny grocery-store aloe vera plant has outgrown the space I'm willing to give it. The longest spike is 18" long and the plant is sprawled out wide instead of standing tall and spikey.

I'd be willing to keep it if I could "straighten it up" so it wouldn't be so wide.

If I can't make it smaller, I'll just start over with it's lonely pup. I'm worried that the pup will grow up fast and wide like it's mama though. Can I "train" the pup?
