I recently potted my aloe Vera plant near a south west facing window. I watered once last week and I noticed that the aloe Vera leaves started to flatten. What should I do?

Once a week is too much water. I water my aloe once a month inside. I rarely water outside. I have had my aloe about 15 years it is in a 18 Gallon terracotta pot. enter image description here


Your plant is fine. Go ahead and snip the tip on the leaf at 11:00 and cut out the leaf at 9:00 (on a clock face)? The little on at 2:00? Cut it off beneath the soil.

Water sparingly and sporadically. You do have to give it a little balanced fertilizer once in a great while.
