The most common cause of yellowing and browning stalks among Aloe plants is improper soil moisture–in particular, overwatering. Only water your Aloe when 75% of the soil in the pot is dry. In the winter, you can allow your plant to dry out a little more between waterings.

It is critical that you place your aloe in a window where it will receive a minimum of six hours of sunlight per day. Without extended, direct light, your succulent will begin to stretch and lose its attractive, compact form. It may topple over as the stem grows weak.
Aloe vera plants do well grown in direct sunlight, but sometimes too much light can damage your aloe’s leaves. Plants grown in very hot sunlight can become sunburned, leading to browning. … To deal with sunburned aloe plants, simply move them into a spot with more shade and diffuse light.
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).
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.
Root rot symptoms generally include dark brown, mushy root tips and dark, mushy lower leaves. Soft rot is a bacterial disease that causes water-soaked spots in aloe leaves. As decay spreads through the insides of the plant, the leaves turn mushy and collapse. The spots may enlarge and merge together.
Aloe vera needs bright, natural light to grow and thrive. It isn’t a low light houseplant. Lack of light causes the plant to weaken and the leaves may crease or bend at the base or in the middle. A leggy growth habit and/or pale leaves are other indications of insufficient light.
