I have had an aloe vera plant for a couple years now and it's been thriving! Until lately I noticed it was starting to get loopy and fall over. I thought it needed a bigger pot but when I went to transplant it it's root system was almost nonexistent!! What did I do wrong?? I planted it in a pot that has a drain, with sandy soil. I didn't keep it wet or anything...

Aloe Vera plants have a horizontal root system and do best in a small, wide pot. Increasing the post size can lead to root rot and the loss of your plant.
The droopy plant or leggy plant could have been due to lack of light or simply the plant needed to be divided. Over watering can also lead to yellowing and droopy leaves.
