The thing that kicked off my love of plants was my grandpas aloe plants. He gave all of us a piece of his mother plant and ours had gotten out of control. It's been split up more than once and two months ago I had to do it again.

Some sections were SUPER leggy so I got bold and chopped off all the tops and replanted the bottoms. NOW LOOK! IT'S SPROUTING BABY LEAVES! My boldness has paid off!

Wow! Can you explain what you did here? My aloe is extremely leggy and it’s turning brown. I’m worried that it might die. Do you think that if I chop it off I might have a chance to save it??
Oh yours can definitely turn around. This was the initial plant I chopped. Basically removed the middle part. I left about 2-3 inches on the top part for stability. Let them callous over 3 days and then popped them in dirt. The bottoms I moved into their own pots. It's taken a while for them to sprout. Like 2 months. Reasons they get leggy is either too much water or lack of sun. If the length bothers you you can totally chop it.
@discreetwildyam thank you so much!! I will try that!
@discreetwildyam you are the maker of life!
