: : My aloes always look ugly. I've inherited them from my mom, and so they're not always pretty when I get them. The arms break off so easily and I had one that suffered from frost last year. It survived and I repotted it, but it's still kinda chopped up from where I removed leaves. How can i prevent them from breaking or bending?
: : Thanks
My aloe doesn't have spots, but the shape of the plant is the same. They don't look like normal leaves, that's why I wasn't sure what to call them.
Also, how long does it take to root by cutting? I've had a few break off that I let dry out a few days before putting them in soil.
