Why does it lean so much?

Does anyone know why my aloe Vera plant has such a big lean ?

Hi Sillyy, welcome to Greg!

Are you referring to the leaf on the left? They typically grow up and then out as they mature.

It looks like maybe when it was planted it had two leaves on one side which meant it was a little lopsided and so now that the growth is coming out evenly it's actually sideways.

Does that make sense?
@PlantMompy yeah 😁
Reach for the Stars!! ðŸĪĢ Seriously tho the leaves are reaching for sun light. Mine reached out so far right that it tilted over a few days ago. So I'm repotting it now. It's important that you turn your plant every week so that all the leaves get the same sun exposure. It's needs 6 plus hours of full sun. Good luck to you!
