Question: Aloe Leaves folded

Thank you so much for the solution proposed to me, lately the leaves of the plant have "bottlenecks", as if the gelatinous substance inside has dried up (indeed the quantity has decreased).

As a result, the leaves bend. Do I have to cut them at the fold point?

During this time, I water it once a week or so, as I keep it outside and the temperatures have gone up.

Yours sincerely

Ileana


Answer: Aloe Leaves folded

Dear Ileana,

Thank you for contacting us for information on Aloe.

Aloe is a plant that requires little water. The frequency must be proportionally increased up to 1 irrigation per week in the summer. The important thing is that the soil is "dry" before the next watering.

For the pruning of the leaves affected by strangulation it is believed at the moment of waiting and not performing the operation also because it would be highly unsightly. In a second moment, if the situation worsens, one could think of cutting the leaf at the insertion level in the stem with a sharp and disinfected knife.
