need some help with my aloe plant


so the other day when i was bringing my aloe plant in i noticed that a couple of the stems turned a redish brown. they are still full and juicy they arent dried up or any thing and its only the stems that when i got the plant were bent and broke. is this normal for it to change colors like this? i have and it in full sun and i dont over water it. can any one help me out with whats going on? i can post pictures if needed

Hi Drake,
Usually if it's turning red it's because it's getting a little to much sun. It will turn green again if you move it out of direct sun. The broken ones should callous over on the ends and be fine. Aloes are pretty forgiving plants.
All the best, Jackie

The bigger ones get about 5 hours of direct sunlight and a couple of indirect a day. The smaller ones get about 3 hours a day. The smaller ones are inside,the larger ones are on my front porch.

does that soil drain fast? If I were you I'd cut off the damaged leaves, take it out of the soil, let it dry out for a few days and then pot it up again. Let the soil dry out before watering.

the soil does drain well i just watered it a little before i took the pictures and i do let the soil dry out before before i re water it. so just pull it out of the soil let it dry and cut off the brown stems?

If it drains well, just cut the damage off. It should be fine.
