Don’t Overwater It. Perhaps the most common reason why aloe vera plants end up breaking is overwatering it. Too much water will make your aloe vera soft and vulnerable. Aloe vera plants suck in water from the air’s humidity, so watering it often can lead to overwatering.
Simply so, will a broken aloe vera leaf grow back?
Just as a leaf won’t grow back after it has been cut, so also won’t it grow after it’s broken off. But once again it doesn’t mean that that’s the end of the plant. Instead, a new aloe plant can be grown from this cutting. Here’s what to do with the broken leaf.
Also, can you bring an aloe plant back to life?
The only way to revive it is to take cuttings from the healthiest looking leaves for propagation. Aloe can propagate from drooping leaves and produce a strong new plant.
What does an unhealthy aloe plant look like?
The Symptoms of an Unhealthy Aloe Vera Plant
Leaves become pale in colour, the green colour fades to a straw yellow colour which eventually turns light brown. Leaf tips darken and dry out. Leaves dry out and wither. Leaves become soft and mushy, and begin to rot.
Generally speaking, plan to water your aloe plant about every 2-3 weeks in the spring and summer and even more sparingly during the fall and winter. One rule of thumb for fall and winter watering is to roughly double the amount of time between waterings (as compared to your summer watering schedule).
It is kind of hard to say because it really depends on how healthy and how big your plant is. But in general, a new aloe leaf will grow back to medium size in a time period of about three to five months.
You can save a broken aloe plant by letting the broken leaf dry for a few days and burying the broken part a few centimeters in potting soil. Keep providing it water every day. This helps the plant develop roots and propagate into a new aloe plant.
