What's wrong with my Aloe???

colleen_gardener(6 Bayonne, NJ)July 16, 2006

Can you please tell me what's wrong with my aloe? I cut a little piece of one to use because I have psorisis and the other tip I cut off because it was turning brown, but now look! It's all reddish brown and doesn't look pulpy and green ;o(

The browning of the leaves is an indication of too much direct sunlight. Move it to a shadier spot and the green will return. There is nothing physically wrong with the plant, just a reaction to too much sun. I have dozens of these plants, if you need more, please email me.
