Aloe plant care is easy, and the houseplant thrives on neglect. But, it's easy to over- or drown these simple succulents, resulting in drooping stems and browning and rot.
They only need to be watered once every three weeks, or less in the winter. Just make sure the soil is dry before watering.
If you ignore your aloe vera plant, you will soon see the results. Watch for browning at the leaf tips and along the leaf margins.
If you have been watering your aloe plant but are still unsure why it is going brown, it may be the result of overwatering or a fungal infection.
If adjusting the watering schedule does not help, consider inspecting the plant for common diseases and pests.
During the busy growing seasons of spring and summer, cacti and succulents, like all other plants, require constant watering.
The secret is to always allow the top two inches of soil to dry out between waterings before giving the plant a full drenching.
Misting aloe vera is unnecessary, and any water left on the branches can induce rot or withering. Therefore, avoid getting aloe shoots moist at all costs.
