@mrsmalone Yes, aloe veras are pretty hardy, and yours doesn't look bad, so it's probably in the beginning stage. So, you will have to act fast and remove your aloe from that pot now, find a different pot with drainage holes, and get your plant completely different soil as the one itโ€™s in now is contaminated. If you donโ€™t have one right now thatโ€™s fine because you are going to have to rinse that soil off your plantโ€™s roots and let it dry out a little before planting it in new soil.

Although you could also throw that soil in a microwavable Ziploc bag (assuming it is still damp) put it in the microwave and steam it for 1 minute killing any harmful bacteria and set aside to cool off, while waiting for your aloeโ€™s roots to dry off. However, that's just a penny-pincher suggestion ๐Ÿ˜Š.
Do you mean the tips of the leaves have turned brown or there is a spot on the leaves โ€˜ body that has turned brown?
Hi Leah ๏ฟผ hi Leah yes the sun is bad little bit of sun good indirect sound good and it will come back. Just give time and donโ€™t leave him out in the sundeck all the time and unless he donโ€™t know what else but at any rate OK ๏ฟผ also possible that youโ€™re getting just a touch of water. It should be the frequency is a lot of people donโ€™t get that and also how much water should he give? You can overwater the heck of it and be doing that frequently that will kill your succulents. ๏ฟผ
My iPad has Touretteโ€™s so clear please excuse the whacking us here son is good not too much. It interact is good too much water or not enough will give you problems also and also occasionally you need to give it some fertilizer three points to determine whether you ever get to do this ever again oh teasing sorry
@Seedstarter the tip of his leaves and heโ€™s squishy which iโ€™ve read isnโ€™t good
Okay so thereโ€™s some conflicting information here because aloeโ€™s love direct sunlight and rarely get sunburned unless they donโ€™t have enough water and brown tip usually indicates that your aloe Vera is not getting enough water either due to human error or they outgrew their current pot. However your plant becoming mushy means that you are giving it too much water and itโ€™s being to rot, which is where things are getting confusing because an aloe canโ€™t be underwater and overwatered at the same time ๐Ÿค”. Your plantโ€™s card says its pot doesnโ€™t have draining, is that true?
@Seedstarter yes it is
@Seedstarter can he come back from rotting?
@Seedstarter thank you so much for this suggestion!๐Ÿ˜Š iโ€™ll be sure to update you on his condition
