: My aloe plant has been knocked down a couple times by my kids. It is showing the fleshy stem and one of the bottom "leaves" has started to turn dark and dry out. Should I try replanting or adding more soil, since some of the soil had to be discarded.
Yes, you will need to replenish the missing soil and you can remove the damaged leaf. Just cut it off near the stem.
