Default When to remove

Truly Tiny at 10 months has this nice pup. When can I remove it from the main stem? There are four other pups starting. The main stem at the base is about 4 inches and the pup is about 1 1/2 inches. When it is okay I intend to wash away much of the soil from the main stem to be able to see where to cut the pup from the mom. All info appreciated.

Have at it if needs be; suckers are a great way to start more plants

And I'm with you on washing away the soil; I did that tonight with an aloe I was potting up into a larger pot and found out it had a baby starting to grow from the side. My first one

Although it is quite warm outside today, 93, I managed to separate the pup.
This is the plant with the pups on it. I only took the large.


The pup (drum roll please)
