In Reply to: Help...damaged aloe! posted by Trish on June 28, 2003 at 00:13:17:
: Help...I have a relatively large aloe plant (about 12" tall) and one of my cats just sat in the middle of it, he completely broke off one of the leaves (are they called leaves?) and cracked another one. What should I do? Can I plant the broken ones? Should I cut off the cracked one (it is oozing gel)? HELP!
For the cracked leaf, I would suggest that you could just leave it and see if it heals over. It should form a callous. If not, you can just cut it off with a sharp knife close to the stem.
