Q.Do Aloe Leaves Require Support?

Zone Egg Harbor NJ | Anonymous added on November 13, 2020 | Answered

I bought a small aloe plant for my office and I guess it has been growing because the larger leaves are now heavy and leaning way out the pot. I’ve only had it a couple months and I wouldn’t think it was ready for a bigger pot yet, but the larger leaves are twice as long as the pot is tall. one of the leaves hung out of the pot to the table and died. Should I give them support? Right now I have a large paperclip crutch under the heaviest leaf. Do they need a bigger pot?

The simple answer is yes, it could use some support and perhaps it does need a larger pot. However, if you repot it, only go up one size. There's also a possibility that something else is going on. Here's a helpful article:
