Aloe Ailment? 🤷🏻‍♀️
I was gifted this little aloe as my first go round at being a “doctor green thumb”and she said it was dying or sick. I don’t see anything wrong with it, but I am a newbie green thumb. Is there anything wrong with it and if so, what can I do to make it better? The only thing I really see wrong is the “leaves” are so thin. #NewPlantMom #PlantAddict #PlantsMakePeopleHappy

I personally would repot in a porous, smaller pot and give it a medium with excellent drainage. I use perlite and regular potting mix for my aloes (I don’t use MiracleGro). Other than that, I would give it bright indirect light and water whenever the leaves start to wrinkle. I would not water for another week and a half or so, though.

The thin leaves are from infrequent watering, so this should fix itself once you get it on a watering schedule :)

When the leaves start to brown at the tip, that means the aloe has been exposed to too much direct light and would be best to move it to a shaded, but bright area 🪴
It’s a really young plant but it looks good and healthy in this picture. Little dry tip but the plant itself looks good.
