  • Dying aloe vera plant
  • Pot
  • Cactus potting mix
  • Perlite soil
  • Moisture control potting mix
  • Garden trowel
  • Scissors


Step 1

All you have to do is to replant the aloe vera in a pot with really good drainage holes. To do this, you have to find a container that is 2 inches larger in diameter than its original pot. Next, start to loosen up the roots gently, it’s as if you’re detangling your braids, just let the roots fall down as you break the soil. If the soil or rootball is extremely dry, then soak it in water for a few minutes or even up to an hour to loosen it up.

Step 2

Next, trim off the roots to about 2 inches long to encourage growth, then plant in the new pot, and put in a combination of different potting soil such as; cactus potting mix, perlite, and moisture control potting mix, you can also throw in some sand if you want. If it has baby plants, then propagate them the same way as you did with the bigger aloe vera, put them in a smaller pot, then it will look comparably better and alive in 1 week.
