Hello everyone. I purchased an aloe plant in May and repotted it into a larger pot. A few weeks later the plant was growing
a new leaf but it was wiggling a lot. I figured I'd take it out and readjust the roots- but there weren't many left! My plant had root rot! I did some research and realized I made a silly mistake, no drainage hole! I was really upset thinking I'd killed my new plant. I cleaned up the roots and put it into dry soil, giving it a little water 2 weeks after and now only on a weekly bases (if I even remember to). The plant recently started growing
it's second new leaf with me and I was very pleased thinking the plant was getting healthier. I took it with me to college (I moved in today) and was looking over the 4 plants I brought with me before heading to bed (it's 1:30am and I still haven't made it to bed!) One of my aloes leaves had a brown spot on it when I got it and I noticed it was spreading a lot the past few days. I decided I'd just pull it off tonight and then go to bed. But when I tried taking the leaf off the whole plant pulled up- no roots! None. At all. There doesn't seem to be any rot on the base so I stuck it back in the soil and gave it water (the soil was very very dry even though I gave it a very small amount of water a few days ago) but after doing more research I think it was a mistake to give it new water. I can't fix that right now- no dry soil at college to move it into! I was just wondering if there were any tips on what I should do? Other than the wiggling and the leaf I pulled off that was damaged when I got the plant, there doesn't seem to be any sickness above soil at all.
