Aloe Vera Problem
I have an Aloe Vera in a huge pot and it recently fell over. It is close to shoulder high. I think this was planted wrong to start with, because the bulk of the top and pretty part does not sit down close to the soil and grow in a pretty shape. There is about a 6 inch stalk.
Please don't faint here, but we did not know what we were doing when we planted it. It was already a fairly good size and so tried to stabilize it with bricks in the soil for support. It looks like there are only a few roots, mainly one big one and it has never given us any babies.
This plant is so heavy that 3 of us could not even pick it up. How can I fix this, so it is pretty, planted correctly and manageable? The one long root means it will not really fit back down into the pot. The stalk is about 6 inches with the remainder upper growth aloe vera, but growing haphazardly. I am in the Dallas area, so it cannot be planted outside due to frost.
I love the plant and hope it is salvageable. It was given to me, while on vacation, by a very nice man from his curbside garden in South Texas.
