Should I cut the lower leaves off my flowering aloe vera ?
I have several mature flowering aloe veras and the leaves / limbs are growing down ward and out of the pot making it difficult to water it . Should I trim these off to the point where the remaining leaves are pointing up or just leave them alone ?
