Aloe Vera

Zone 58027 | Kaylastahl95 added on December 17, 2016 | Answered

I have an aloe vera plant and I suspect that it has root rot. If I were to cut off all the dried out leaves and replant it into a different pot, would it re-establish its root system?

It may or may not, depending on how severe the root rot is. But it's worth a try. Repotting into dry soil and letting the roots dry out is a good option. When you remove the plant from its pot, cut off any roots that have gone mushy. Also see this article on saving plants from root rot:
