Aloe plant turning brown but green and firm at base
Ok, my uncle died and left me his aloe vera plant. I have done well taking care of it. I placed it outside in the light and heat and it was just fine. I left last weekend to pack up my old house, when I returned my aloe was drooping, and brown from the mid leaf up to the tips. The thing is though the brown parts (some anyway) were dry and crisp while others were mushy. It is weird. I was told by a "pro" to cut off and remove the crispy leaves and then to cut some parts of the mushy brown leaves off. But I don't know if this is sound advice. Please help. I was using this plant for my natural hair products and do not wish it to die.
