need aloe help

emee(7)July 13, 2014

I purchased this Aloe a couple of weeks ago & repotted it into a larger container. It seems healthy but top heavy. It feels wobbly in the soil & I am using a wooden skewer to hold it upright. Any suggestions what to do to stabilize this plant? Thanks.

A smaller pot with less soil and the plant supported by babyfist-sized rocks will do the trick. Don't water for a few days after you repot.

Thanks. I should have left it in the pot it was in. Live & learn!

You can put a rock on either side of it and it will eventually root in fine... give as much light as possible.
