Q.My Aloe Vera Leaves Keep Breaking Off (bending To The Point Where It Breaks), What Do I Do?

Zone Switzerland | Anonymous added on April 10, 2021 | Answered

Since last fall, my aloe vera leaves keep flopping off, and some bent so much that the leave cracked under it, and ended up falling off. It had 10 leaves before fall, now it just has 6 and one that is slowly coming. What do I do? I live in a flat and all of my windows are facing east. But the only place I have for my plant is near the wall, so it only has direct sunshine on the morning, from 6 to 9, then the sun is too high and/or too south-east to shine right on it. I watered it once a month during winter, and now twice a month. Thanks for the help.
