Just wondering if someone could help with a problem?
I have a Aloe Vera Plant that had alot of other's growing out of the same pot at the base. I retransplanted this Aloe and tried seperating all the other one's from the main one. Now I've noticed brown spots forming on several of the Plant's. Is this because of in seperating the plant's I may have damaged the roots. I've also been watering them quiet often, that also could be a cause. What do I do now that the plants are showing up with the brown spots, could it be a diease to the plant. The bad thing I've noticed about doing this is the main plant was growing a tall stem out of the center and now it is dieing. It did this once before, but I never had any blooms on it, I just figured it was going to seed. I still have another Large Aloe witch is growing over the sides of the pot and it has several others growing out of it too, it is so heavy the pot keeps trying to tip over. I'd like to know what I can do about this, since the last one I tried to seperate is showing these signs of Brown spots. I've been triming the dry areas of the leaves that after transplanting has turned Brown and dead like. The small plants seem to look okay. I've been alittle curious about weather these plants are getting a draft in the window from the cold and may also be causing some of these problems. Well I guess I'll just keep trying to nurse these plants to see if I can clear up the problems. Any information on help with these issues will greatly be appreciated. And for those out there looking for to get their Aloe's to grow babies try less soil in the top of the pot that seems to be how mine are geting like they are. I know from the past having these when planted deeper in the soil they don't seem to have these babies. Cindy Hamling
