Dear Roy,

With Aloe Veras, one must remember that they like direct sunshine, and
when you water, you should allow the water to be almost dry before
watering again.  A not-too-hot area is also ideal for them where the
temperature is neither hot nor cold.  And they may have also outgrown
the pot or the place where they reside.  A change in either may work

I have found that rainwater seems to perform miracles for the plants.
When it rains, they get much rainwater and perk up from their sometimes
lethargic condition.

Take care and best of luck with your Aloe Vera!
