I recently got my first aloe and I've noticed that a hole is forming, the tips are browning and the leafs are getting squishy. Whats wrong?
Hi plant parents, I got my first
a couple of weeks ago a I just started seeing a hole forming, some of the tips are starting to brown and the leaf itself are kind of squishy. I don't have the eight soil yet but I'm getting the right type really soon. (Thank you to
for telling me what the right soil is.) Is there anything else I can do? Thanks again! 🌱🌿🌱🌿🌱🥰
4” pot without drainage

It maybe getting too much water and I would put it in a pot with drainage. Also by changing the soil when u get it it won’t stay so wet. I am also still learning but I LOVE plants and learning! Have fun!!!
i think glass is a bit too moisture retentive for a succulent, that plus the fact that there’s no drainage is probably causing her to get root rot. i would cut off any mushy looking roots and get her into either a plastic or terracotta pot with drainage.
