Aloe barberae watering in summer
I have an aloe barberae in a large planter. It is about 6 feet tall. Lately the about 2/3 of the plant's leaves are hanging down, bending near the trunk. The top 1/3 is upright and healthy. It gets about 3 hours of morning sun and that's it, at least for the summer. I have it in full sun during the winter. The trunk base does not appear to be rotting and the trunk itself is strong. The drooping leaves are still very green with a smidge of sunburn (old sunburn, nothing recent).
Is this a winter growing aloe here in PHX? Should I not water it until then? It seems so cruel ;) I watered it about once every two weeks in the spring and that's what the summer schedule was until I noticed the drooping. I haven't watered it in about 3 weeks. Any ideas?
