: I have a giant aloe plant which has grown off the the side not straight up. Should I transplant the large plant or shoukd it be trimed up? If so, how and when shouold I attempt this project?
Here's your post. Sorry about that. I too have a very large aloe that has done the same thing. Unless it it rootbound, you could just put it back in the same pot. Use the directions on my previous post and if it isn't rootbound, just put it back in the same pot but angle the base of the plant so that the top is upright and the roots will be at an angle. If it's rootbound, get a pot that is 2" larger and use the same method. You will probably need someone to hold the plant upright while you fill in the dirt.
Hope this makes sense,
