I forgot him when I went home for christmas break (awful, I know) and all of his growth was yellow when I got back. I cut it back to the still green parts, but he hasn’t changed since then and has no new growth. where do I start? thank you!!

Are you sure that's an aloe?

It looks like a Haworthia limifolia... I took this this one out of my daughter's bathroom - the bathroom with no windows. She's had it there for about 8 months.

Haworthia limifolia grow so slowly. So painfully slowly. Where you cut it, it will not grow back. HOWEVER- can you spy the new growth in the middle of the second picture? That's what you're looking for on your plant.

Your plant is very drought tolerant, but it likes a lot of light. Remember, it's a SLOW GROWER.

If you'd like, you can remove it and take a look at the roots of your plant. You're looking for light green or pale yellow roots. If you see healthy roots, your plant has a good chance of pulling through.

Good luck! πŸͺ΄πŸ’šβ˜€οΈ
I’m really bad at looking after aloe plants and they are meant to be easy. Think you’ve done good chopping the dead bits off. Hopefully it will give you some new shoots soon 🀞🏼😊🀞🏼

i would recommend removing the fake moss since it can hold unnecessary moisture, aloe plants don’t like to be watered too much. they also don’t like their stem areas to be under soil either. i hope i was some help!!
@sarahsalith oh wow I think you’re right! I’ve had this plant for so long that I had forgotten what it was, but it looks like we have the same Lowes plant lol :) thank you for your help!!
@Beccyboo24 thank you!
@mora thank you!
Love your plants name 🀩
