Hi Jim- I generally try to transplant aloes at the very beginning of their growing season, although I'm not sure if it matters.  I seem to remember A. dichotoma being a winter growing species, but I have large one in the ground in a summer rainfall area (well drained) and it seems to do fine although it still blooms in December/January.
