New member, here. My name is Jillian, and it's nice to meet you. It was suggested that I bring this question to the House plants
I have a young aloe vera plant
that I purchased a week ago from a Lowe's store. It's about 5"-6" tall and it was in a teeny pot, very root bound and dry when I bought it. My daughter & I transplanted it into a larger pot (4") the day after it was purchased and watered it just a little bit.
The other day I noticed that one of the bottom leaves was turning a lighter shade of green; it is limp, loose, and beginning to turn a more sickly shade of green. This leaf is the only one that has a cut from the tip, (it was like that when we bought it). I keep the plant
in a high-light area of my house - near the patio door - where it receives direct morning sun, and then for the rest of the day it's in bright, indirect, natural light.
My question (finally) is, do I pull this sickly leaf off? I don't know if it's causing harm to the rest of the plant
. Do I cut it off or just pull it off - it's so loose - but I don't want to cause trauma to it.
Thanks so much for any help you can give to me
I look forward to hearing from you.
